Luke Combs is booked for an upcoming episode of Saturday Night Live.

The Feb. 8 episode, meanwhile, is looking to be a straight-up extravaganza with RuPaul sashaying into Studio 8H for the first time.

Country star Luke Combs will be the musical guest that night. Bieber first appeared as Tina Fey's musical guest in April 2010, then returned to pull double duty in February 2013.

Combs is set to be the musical guest on an episode hosted by JJ Watt, according to a press release on Tuesday (Jan. 21). Drop a comment with your thoughts below. But SNL has tapped quarterbacks lately, including Tom Brady and both Peyton and Eli Manning.

But the show's 27th athlete-host was picked for a reason.

Watt's no stranger to comedy, the team pointed out, having cut his chops playing a soccer coach in 2016's "Bad Moms" and a football player (naturally) in Ang Lee's "Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk".

Watt has also portrayed himself in the FOX comedy "New Girl" and FX's "The League".
