Tesla CEO Elon Musk will host “Saturday Night Live” for the first time on May 8, NBC said.

Musical guest Miley Cyrus will mark her sixth appearance as the musical guest. Cyrus retweeted the scheduling announcement of “Saturday Night Live,” which also streams on Peacock.

The news comes as Musk, also the CEO of  SpaceX, celebrates the arrival of the Dragon spacecraft at the International Space Station on April 24.

Musk, who has a cultlike following on social media, has made appearances in entertainment shows over the years. In 2018, he smoked weed during a podcast with California comedian Joe Rogan that touched upon everything from flame throwers and artificial intelligence to the end of the universe. Tesla’s shares fell the following day.

Cyrus, who recently launched her studio album “Plastic Hearts,” said in March she’s partnering with Square Inc.’s CashApp to give away $1 million worth of stock.
