Justin TimberlakeJustin Timberlake is returning to 'Saturday Night Live.' Yep, the multi-talented singer/actor/comedian responsible for 'D*ck in a Box' -- who has won two Emmys for his appearances on the show -- will host the finale on May 21.

According to our friends at The Huffington Post, 'Saturday Night Live' made the announcement to a fan on Twitter.

A fan tweeted "I didn't realize that @nbcsnl isn't back until May 7th!!! What am I going to do!? Is Tina Fey the season finale!? #SNL #aaahhhh."

The show responded, "Nope! We have Timberlake after that!" However, the tweet has since been deleted.

According to the New York Post, Lady Gaga will be the musical guest. This is Gaga's second time on the 'SNL' stage, her first appearance was in October 2009.

Timberlake has been nominated for three Emmy Awards for his appearances on 'SNL,' and won two. He last hosted the show in May 2009, but appeared in this season's premiere episode.

As mentioned, Tina Fey will host the May 7 episode, which is also the series' 700th episode.

Can't wait until May? Watch 'MotherLover,' the sequel to 'D*ck in a Box.'
