Elon Musk is making his “Saturday Night Live” hosting debut.
The Tesla CEO will host the late night sketch show on May 8 with musical guest Miley Cyrus.
Musk has been busy as his SpaceX just launched its second operational flight of Dragon to the International Space Station on Friday.

Musk isn’t the first business executive to host the show. While few and far between, NBC programming head Brandon Tarikoff hosted in 1983 with owner of the New York Yankees George Steinbrenner hosting in 1990.
Reaction to Musk hosting was mixed:
