After pulling double duty as one of the show’s rare host/musical guests in 2014, Drake will do it all over again on May 14, a little more than two weeks after Views’ release. In his previous appearance, SPIN’s 2015 Artist of the Year drew laughs with his impersonations of Lil Wayne and Katt Williams.
Courtney Barnett will perform on the Fred Armisen-hosted season finale a week later on May 21. This will be her first appearance on the show.
