Music stars and former cast members return to celebrate the show’s big birthday.

Kanye West and Paul McCartney are set to appear on a special 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live, meaning we could be in for a live performance of their softie collaboration ‘Only One’.

Other big names lined up for the three-hour episode on February 15 include Justin Timberlake, Paul Simon and actors Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy and Robert De Niro.

From the comedy world, Jerry Seinfeld, and Steve Martin will join former SNL stars Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, Tina Fey, Mike Myers, Will Ferrell, Molly Shannon and Chevy Chase.

Kanye has appeared on SNL plenty of times in the past, but they haven’t always been on friendly terms – the rapper was miffed with the show after its ‘Waking Up With Kimye’ skit in 2013, with Jay Pharaoh and Nasim Pedrad doing impressions of the celeb couple.

Watch a clip of Kanye backstage at SNL with Mike Myers in 2005.
