Japanese Breakfast Will Perform on <i>SNL</i>'s Season 47 Finale

Michelle Zauner’s Japanese Breakfast is bigger than ever, an ascent to indie-rock stardom that shows no signs of slowing down. The band will take the Studio 8H stage as musical guests on the Season 47 finale of Saturday Night Live, which will be hosted by Natasha Lyonne (Russian Doll) and air on Saturday, May 21, at 11:30 p.m. ET.

Japanese Breakfast’s third album Jubilee was one of 2021’s best and most acclaimed LPs, earning the band Grammy nods for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album. Its lead single “Be Sweet” was one of Paste’s top tracks of the year.

Zauner and company have supported Jubilee all over TV, performing on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Daily Show, Ellen CBS Sunday Morning and CBS This Morning. Later this month, they’ll headline Wilco’s Solid Sound Festival.
