Taylor Swift to Host 'SNL'

Taylor Swift is getting another opportunity to deliver a speech sans interruption. On November 7th, she will host Saturday Night Live -- just 10 months after she appeared as the show's musical guest.

PEOPLE magazine reports that Swift regards her invitation to the NBC sketch show as "mind-blowing."

"I love being around people who I feel have a different kind of creative genius," Swift said in a statement released by NBC. "And the funny genius is definitely a fascinating one to be around."

As for what viewers can expect from Taylor's SNL appearance, she alluded to the Kanye West incident as possible inspiration.

"I've been thinking about skit ideas for a long time," she told The Associated Press. "There are definitely some hilarious things that have happened to me over the past couple of months that I think will be pretty substantial skits."

Taylor is proving to be a hot ticket for TV show bookings of late. NBC's announcement comes just two days after she received six American Music Award nominations -- the most of any artist on the list, and just one more than Michael Jackson. And on October 27, she'll perform on Dancing with the Stars.

Believe it or not, 19-year-old Taylor is not the youngest performer to get to host Saturday Night Live. That honor goes to last week's host, Drew Barrymore, who was just seven years old when she first took the SNL reins. Other youngster SNL hosts include Jodie Foster (who was 14 at the time), Fred Savage (who was 13) and Macaulay Culkin (who was 11).

Do you think Taylor will be a funny host? Chime in below!
