The Grammy-winning singer and actress is returning to the SNL stage as both Host and musical guest for the May 4 episode. It will be Lipa's first time hosting, and the third time she has performed on SNL.

In 2024, the pop star appeared as a seductive secret spy in Argylle. She's also gearing up to release her latest album, Radical Optimism, on May 3.

In 2019, Lipa won the Grammy for Best New Artist, after the release of her debut album which featured the massive hit single, "New Rules." She followed it up in 2020 with her second album, Future Nostalgia, full of retro dance floor-fillers, which led to her taking home the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album. Lipa recently unleashed her new single, "Illusion," from the forthcoming Radical Optimism.

In addition to releasing a string of pop hits, and appearing in 2023's biggest movie, in December 2023, Dua joined Seth Meyers for an an extra silly installment of "Day Drinking." She and the Late Night with Seth Meyers Host went so hard, Lipa ended up having to go home early. But Lipa subsequently sat down with Meyers on Late Night to explain what happened, and the two got matching tattoos to commemorate their bonding experience.
