'SNL' Season 41 Musical Guests in April Include Nick Jonas, Margo Price and Gwen Stefani
Saturday Night Live has announced its roster of musical guests for April, and it's going to be one eclectic month for the long-running NBC sketch show. On Thursday (March 31), just days before Gwen Stefani is set to hit Studio 8H with host Peter Dinklage, SNL announced that Nick Jonas and country singer Margo Price will also be performing this month.
SNL confirmed its April guest lineup on its Twitter account. Stefani has been a long-confirmed musical guest for the April 2 episode of the show, following the release of her new No. 1 album This Is What the Truth Feels Like.
And while the "Make Me Like You" singer will be bringing the pop, SNL is going to get a little dose of the South courtesy of Margo Price on April 9. Russell Crowe will host.

Price, a Nashville-based country singer-songwriter, just released her debut album Midwest Farmer's Daughter on Third Man Records on March 25. Blending together blues with bluegrass, Price will be the second country singer to perform on SNL's 41st season, following Chris Stapleton's appearance in January.
And, to further mix up the playlist for season 41, Nick Jonas will be bringing his hybrid of pop and R&B to the April 16 episode of SNL. Jonas is prepping for the release of his third solo album Last Year Was Complicated, which is due for release on June 10. Thus far, Jonas has released the album's lead single "Close", which features Tove Lo.
Jonas will be making his second appearance as a musical guest on April 16 alongside host Julia Louis-Dreyfus. He previously appeared with his band Jonas Brothers in 2009.
