DEREK JETER/BUBBA SPARXXX/SHAKIRA.. (TV-14)
SNL welcomes New York Yankee shortstop and four-time World Series Champion Derek Jeter as host -- following in the footsteps of other superstar athletes like Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, Wayne Gretzky, Joe Montana, Walter Peyton, Chris Evert, Deion Sanders and George Foreman who’ve hosted the show. Jeter is a two-time All-Star MVP, a World Series MVP in 2000 and holds a number of Major League Baseball records, putting him in the Yankee pantheon alongside such legends as Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio. Two musical guests will join Jeter - Latin sensation Shakira (whose first English language CD "Laundry Service" debuted at #3 on the Billboard chart) and Southern rapper Bubba Sparxxx (whose debut LP "Dark Days, Bright Nights" also burst onto the charts at #3). A regular occurrence in the show's early years, this marks the first time in eleven years that one SNL episode has had two different musical guests.
