We’re no psychics, but it seems clear that the hosts lined up for SNL‘s final three episodes are going to blow every other host this season out of the water. (Sorry Zach Galifianakis, Jon Hamm and Gwyneth Paltrow.)

On May 14, Tina Fey will return for her third time as host with musical guest Ellie Goulding. One week later, Ed Helms, who recently told Marc Maron he always wanted to land a gig on SNL, but instead went on to gain fame and glory through “The Daily Show,”  “The Office,” and two “Hangover” movies – will host for the very first time with musical guest Paul Simon. Lastly, Justin Timberlake will return for a fourth time as host (which pretty much guarantees a Jimmy Fallon cameo, right?) alongside musical guest Lady Gaga on the May 21 finale. There. Did your head just explode?
