Fresh off his success as leading man in “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Chris Pratt will kick off the 40th season of “Saturday Night Live” as host, with Ariana Grande joining him as musical guest on the Sept. 27 premiere, NBC announced Wednesday.
The announcement of Pratt’s hosting gig comes as little surprise, seeing how Disney’s “Guardians” is still ruling the box office. Coming up, he has the final season of “Parks and Recreation,” “Jurassic World” and a “Guardians” sequel, while Grande recently released sophomore album “My Everything.” It’s the “SNL” debut for both Pratt and Grande.
It marks a return, however, for Silverman and Maroon 5. Silverman was a cast member for the 1993-1994 season, though this will be her first time hosting, and Maroon 5 has appeared on the show four times before. »

Saturday Night Live is kicking off its 40th season with one heck of a pairing. It was just announced that Chris Pratt is locked to host the very first episode of the season and that Ariana Grande will be the musical guest. You really can’t get much bigger than that right now. Pratt is the star of the top-grossing movie of the year (domestically), Guardians of the Galaxy, and he’s also in one of the most highly anticipated movies of 2015, Jurassic World. Even though Grande’s Disney show Sam & Cat just got cut, it’s probably because she’s moving on to bigger and better things now. Her song “My Everything” is currently #1 on the Billboard 200 and she’s also #1 on the Artist 100 as well. Hit the jump for more on what’s coming up on SNL.

Almost exactly a year after releasing its third album, “Midnight Memories,” enduring boy band One Direction returns Nov. 17 with its fourth album, the cleverly titled “Four” (Are they in cahoots with Maroon 5, who just released “V,” their fifth album? Also, not to be confused with Huey Lewis & The News' "Fore" album) The British quintet announced the album via YouTube, as well as informed fans about the availability of 24-hour free download of “Fireproof.” Two of the band’s members, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, co-wrote the new tune with John Ryan, Jamie Scott and Julian Bunetta. “Fireproof” is a mid-tempo, sweet, wistful tune, which features, per usual, the members trading lines about a love that goes on despite the odds. A drum loop propels it forward, as a nice electric guitar line gives it some heft. It doesn’t have an undeniably catchy chorus or build like “Story of My Life, »

As we previously reported, album sales are at a record all-time low in the U.S. Last week, album sales totaled 3.97 million for the week, marking the first time the tally has dropped below 4 million, unprecedented in the SoundScan era (which kicked off with tracking sales data in 1991). Billboard -- who has a partnership with SoundScan -- is the first to report album and sales news, the good, the bad and the ugly. Today it was reported that sales are slightly up from that grim news last week, 5% only (to 4.2 million), due to Ariana Grande's fresh "My Everything." But still, that makes it trending low, which Ed Christman said is only to be expected. "The weekly average number of album sales fell from 4.75 million units in the first quarter to 4.55 million units in the second quarter. In the first 8 weeks of the third quarter, the average has fallen further to 4.2 million. »

Move over Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon has a new music buddy: Last night on “The Tonight Show,” he and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine debuted a new feature, Wheel of Musical Impressions Using the “musical impressions generator,” different artists, such as Michael Jackson or Frank Sinatra, came up paired with tunes such as Magic!’s “Rude” or the theme to “Sesame Street,” and each had to do an impression. Levine was the clear winner as he hit it out of the ball park with his Sinatra impression. We think his Jackson impression sounded a little more like Stevie Wonder than the King of Pop, but his take on Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder was spot on. As for Fallon’s Iggy Azalea impression, let’s just say, better luck next time. »
