‘Saturday Night Live’ books One Direction, Sofia Vergara for April 7

Who’s hosting next?

For those of you out there who are rather big-time fans of One Direction and Sofia Vergara, there is some big news coming your way — they are each going to be appearing on “Saturday Night Live” later this season.

During the show hosted by Jonah Hill this weekend (which we will have a full review for soon), it was announced that Vergara and the “X Factor” sensation will be on the show April 7. This marks the first appearances for both Vergara and the boy band on the NBC staple, and for One Direction this may mark their biggest opportunity yet to develop the same sort of following in America that they have already developed in their home country of the United Kingdom.

Speaking of young singing sensations, there’s still no word on if the long-discussed Justin Bieber show is happening this year. Alec Baldwin said it was “confirmed” during a podcast, but there has been radio silence ever since.

What do you think about the selection of Vergara as host?
