Rapper Kanye West will perform as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live‘s season finale on May 18.

West will be joining actor and director Ben Affleck, who will be hosting the finale.

The Saturday Night Live Twitter account tweeted:

And for the Season 38 Finale, 5/18: @BenAffleck joins the #5TimersClub with his 5th appearance as host! And music from @kanyewest!! #SNL

Following a parody of the rapper by an SNL cast member, West infamously mocked SNL in his 2010 single “Power,” which he then performed on the show that season with alternate lyrics.

The recent Academy Award winner for Best Director will be hosting SNL for a fifth time, and this season’s finale marks West’s fifth time performing and first SNL appearance since 2010.
