Japanese Breakfast has been announced as the musical guest for the May 21 episode of Saturday Night Live. Natasha Lyonne will make her hosting debut on the episode, which is also the Season 47 finale. Funny enough, it’ll mark the second straight SNL episode to feature a nominee for the 2022 Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album. This weekend, musical guest Post Malone will bring Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold onstage to play a new song.
Japanese Breakfast released her third album, Jubilee, in 2021. That same year, she also released a soundtrack for the video game Sable. Japanese Breakfast was nominated for two awards at the 2022 Grammys: Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album for Jubilee. Michelle Zauner spoke with Pitchfork about her first-ever experience at the awards, including her encounter with BTS.
