The three-time Grammy Award winning band recently released their new single, "Lonely Boy." They are embarking on a world tour in January.

Katy Perry will host Saturday Night Live on December 10, fresh off her worldwide sold-out California Dreams arena tour. Her multi-platinum album "Teenage Dream" debuted at number one in September 2010, and has generated six hit singles, including the current single "The One That Got Away," as well as previous singles "Firework," "Last Friday Night," "E.T.," "Teenage Dream" and "California Gurls," all of which hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100. Katy received four Grammy nominations in 2010, including one for "Album of the Year," received the American Music Award of Special Achievement and won three MTV 2011 Video Music Awards, including Video of the Year.

Robyn will make her musical guest debut on December 10. The Swedish singer-songwriter's Grammy nominated 2007 self-titled album produced international hits including "With Every Heartbeat," which reached number one and "Be Mine." In 2010, she released three critically acclaimed albums, known as the "Body Talk" trilogy. "Dancing on My Own," the first single, was nominated for a Grammy in the U.S. Additionally, Robyn swept the Grammy Awards in Sweden with four wins and was nominated for a Brit award.

On December 17, SNL alum Jimmy Fallon returns to make his debut appearance as host. With a six-year stint on SNL, Fallon made numerous contributions to the show including co-anchoring "Weekend Update" alongside Tina Fey. Fallon hosts the Emmy-nominated show, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," which consistently garners attention for playful segments with guests, inspired parodies, and interactive audience games.

Bublé is returning to the SNL stage for his second appearance as musical guest. The three-time Grammy and multiple Juno Award winner's most recent album, "Crazy Love," sold over 30 million albums and topped charts in the US and worldwide. "Christmas," Michael Bublé's latest album remains a top five album on Billboard's Top 200 chart since its October 25th release.
