While we're already *well* excited about Saturday Night Live this week so we can see Josh Hutcherson catch fire and take his shirt off (or something like that), it seems we've got even more to look forward to from the show.

So it looks like you're going to need to mark December 7th in your diaries and cancel ALL your plans for the evening, because One Direction are set to be the musical guests on SNL for the second ruddy time.

That's right, 1D will be on the iconic telly show next month as part of their big ol' Midnight Memories promo or summat, and even better, it's got Paul Rudd hosting the whole thing too. IT'S GOING TO BE GOOD.

Saturday Night Live made the announcement yesterday and to be honest, we're already thinking up amazing things the lads could do on the show. Because we all remember how genius THIS was, right?

Exactly. And to think that this was all before the Best Song Ever video, which means the 1D acting skills have gotten a billion times better since. Just *think* of the possibilities.

To be honest, we probably won't be pleased unless Harry turns up as Marcel and Liam teaches the entire cast a full dance routine as Leeroy HMMM, and seeing as that probably won't happen, let's just watch this again to get us in the Friday feeling...

AGH, Juan Direction. Even in poor quality it's amazing, innit. So what do you make of this exciting news, eh? Will you be tuning in to see One Direction perform on SNL? And are you as desperate as us to see the lads make another award winning cameo? Comments please...
