The Biebs will take over "SNL" on Feb. 9. Bieber previously appeared on "Saturday Night Live" in April 2010, in which he performed "U Smile" and serenaded the night's host, Tina Fey, in a sketch.

Earlier this season, Bruno Mars served as host and performer on "Saturday Night Live," and artists like Katy Perry, Christina Aguilera and Elton John have pulled double duty on the show in the past. Maroon 5's Adam Levine will make his hosting debut on Jan. 26, with Kendrick Lamar coming in as musical guest.

Bieber's appearance on Feb. 9 will be in support of his "Believe Acoustic" album, due out Jan. 29. The Biebs performed a stripped-down take on his hit single "Boyfriend," along with two other singles, on "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" last week.
