NEW YORK (AP) - Tina Fey, Ryan Phillippe and Gabourey Sidibe will be taking turns as "Saturday Night Live" hosts this month.

NBC said Thursday that Fey, a former "SNL" cast member and head writer, is hosting the April 10 show and will be joined by Canadian-born pop sensation Justin Bieber.

Phillippe is set to host the April 17 show with Ke$ha as the musical guest. On April 24, Precious star, Oscar nominee and, if you've ever seen/heard her interviewed, funny lady Sidibe will take on hosting duties and the band MGMT is to perform.

Fey, the star and creator of NBC's "30 Rock," is making her second appearance as host, while Phillippe and Sidibe are first-timers.

Phillippe is in the upcoming film MacGruber, an adaptation of the "SNL" sketch about a hapless special-ops man, played by Will Forte while Fey is starring opposite Steve Carell (who last hosted in 2005) in the comedy Date Night, which opens in Cineplex theatres on April 9.

Incidentally, did you know that Carell auditioned to be an SNL cast member back in 1995 but lost out to one Will Ferrell? True story.

Now that NBC has announced it's latest host line-up, who do you think should be next?
