There are only three Saturday Night Live episodes left until the end of 2023, and the final musical guests have been chosen. Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish will perform on the last two episodes of the popular sketch comedy show before SNL rings in a new year.

Rodrigo will take the SNL stage on December 9, alongside the host Adam Driver, who’s promoting his new film Ferrari. She made her Saturday Night Live debut in 2021, and having her perform right now is a pretty “logical” choice given the success of her sophomore studio album Guts.

As for Billie Eilish, she’ll be a part of what’s shaping up to be a Barbie-themed episode on December 16, since she’ll perform alongside Kate McKinnon. The SNL alum starred in Greta Gerwig’s box office smash hit earlier this year, while Eilish recorded the song “What Was I Made For?”, which went on to receive Grammy nods for the record and song of the year.

Rodrigo and Eilish will follow in the footsteps of Noah Kahan, who’s the musical guest on the December 2 episode hosted by Emma Stone. Coincidently, they’re both previous winners of the best new artist Grammy, while Kahan was nominated this year.

The list of musical guests on this season of SNL also included the rapper Ice Spice, Puerto Rican sensation Bad Bunny, rock band Foo Fighters, indie supergroup Boygenius, and rising pop star Tate McRae.
