Lil Nas X is taking a break from grinding on Satan to debut a new song on Saturday Night Live, and we couldn’t be more excited.

Just weeks after he unleashed “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” on the world, the singer and rapper is preparing to take Earth by storm once more.

Lil Nas X confirmed that he will appear on SNL on 22 May as a special guest, while Emma actress Anya Taylor-Joy will serve as guest host.

The “Old Town Road” rapper posted an image on Instagram confirming the date, the host and his own appearance as a guest performer on Monday (3 May).

The queer icon will perform “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” and a new unnamed song on the show, he revealed on Instagram.

He shared the details alongside an orange heart emoji and a hot face emoji, suggesting fans might get a little bit hot under their collars watching his SNL performance.

Fans left ‘shaking’ after Lil Nas X announces Saturday Night Live performance

Fans are already practicing their lapdance skills in preparation for the singer and rapper’s SNL debut – and it’s safe to say they’re excited.

“The gays are shakinggg Anya Taylor Joy AND Lil Nas X?!???” one fan commented.

Another summed up all our thoughts, writing in capitals: “Ahhhhhhhhh we will be watching” alongside four flame emojis.

The news comes just weeks after Lil Nas X captured the hearts of LGBT+ fans across the world with the gloriously queer music video for “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)”.

The iconic music video shows Lil Nas X sliding down a stripper pole to hell, where he grinds on Satan in a very special lapdance.

The song has become a global hit, shooting to the top of the charts in numerous countries – including in Saudi Arabia, where gay sex is illegal.

Needless to say, the song and its accompanying music video sent religious fanatics into a furious rage – and the “Holiday” singer wasn’t interested in defusing the furore. Instead, he released his own Satan-themed Nike shoes, with each shoe containing a single drop of human blood.

Sadly, fans never got to see the wildly expensive shoes after Nike filed a lawsuit to stop them from being shipped – but the stunt made sure that Lil Nas X was firmly planted in everyone’s minds.
