'SNL' Gets Kanye West, Arcade Fire, Jack White for 40th Anniversary Special
This Saturday night (February 15), Saturday Night Live will be celebrating its 40th anniversary in rather spectacular fashion. The long-running comedy show has confirmed its musical lineup for the big night, and it features a veritable festival's worth of big-name talent.

Musicians who are on the long list of names for the show include Kanye West, Arcade Fire, Jack White, Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, Elvis Costello, Paul Simon, Deborah Harry, Fiona Apple, Ludacris, Miley Cyrus, Backstreet Boys, 50 Cent and Jon Bon Jovi.

Of course, we can't be sure whether all of these artists will have proper performances or if they will appear in skits or collaborations. In any case, the show is expected to be a few hours long, so there's plenty of time to fit in lots of music.

The lineup also includes former cast members like Bill Murray, Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, Billy Crystal, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler and Andy Samberg, along with big-name celebs like Tom Hanks, Louis C.K., Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, Derek Jeter, George Lucas, Catherine Zeta-Jones and more.
