Mick Jagger will host the Saturday Night Live finale

Perhaps as a retort to all those complaining about Saturday Night Live's decidedly younger-skewing, YouTube-combing musical guests this year, the show has booked the complete opposite of Karmin and One Direction in Mick Jagger, who will also pull double duty as host of the May 19 finale. Jagger has popped up three times over the years to perform but he's never hosted, although he has memorably appeared in sketches—most notably wheeling out his eerily accurate Keith Richards impersonation opposite Mike Myers, and doing one of those mirror routines opposite Jimmy Fallon. In short, Jimmy Fallon is also probably appearing on the May 19 finale.
