On the 5th October show hosted by teen star-turned twerker Miley Cyrus, she will also provide the musical performance and it is not yet known whether there'll be a repeat of her controversial MTV VMAs performance that saw her, scantily clad, grinding upon R&B singer Robin Thicke.

NBC are said to extremely confident in their decision to book SNL alumnus Tina Fey to kick off their new season. The Mean Girls writer and actress made her name on the show during the ten years that she was part of its recurring cast. According to the Times, this means "a sure hand will be leading the cast, which is adding a raft of new members this season." The September 28th show will mark Fey's fourth hosting slot since her 2006 departure from the weekend entertainment show.

The SNL cast has been in flux since Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader and Fred Armisen last season, with Seth Meyers only staying until December when he'll moving on to take over hosting of NBC's Late Night from Jimmy Fallon.
