Justin Bieber is set to host Saturday Night Live tonight for the first time and also perform as a musical guest on the show. A promotional clip for the SNL stint was posted by NBC earlier this week.
"These outfits on this SNL rehearsal are hilarious. my own team didnt realize it was me. haha. gonna be fun tonight. #BIEBERonSNL," tweeted Bieber, as he updated fans on his rehearsal for the show. "Up real early today for a LONG DAY of rehearsals. and now a blizzard is coming. no issue. Im Canadian."

The arrival of the 18-year-old Canadian pop star was highly anticipated by devoted fans who have camped out in the freezing New York weather hoping to get free standby tickets to the show.
Bieber hasn't made an appearance on SNL since last season on NBC, when he was featured in the 100th Digital Short. He will become the 30th person to both host and perform on the show.
Tonight's show is expected to cover much of what has been reported on about the pop star - including his breakup with Selena Gomez and the controversy surrounding photos of him smoking pot.
Watch Bieber host and perform on SNL Saturday, Feb. 9, at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC. Click here for a live stream of the show.
