It's all coming together for this former Saturday Night Live star!!

Maya Rudolph is officially hosting her own variety show which is set to air in about a month!

ZOMG. We're so thrilled for her!

The Maya Rudolph Show, a 60-minute special that will throw it back to variety hours of years past, will premiere Monday, May 19th at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.

Andy Samberg, Kristen Bell, Fred Armisen, Chris Parnell, Craig Robinson, and Sean Hayes will be guests—and Janelle Monáe will sing her little heart out as the premiere's fantabulous musical number!

Lorne Michaels will serve as executive producer of the special, which could also serve as a pilot for an ongoing series!

We seriously hope Maya delivers and the variety hour returns forever! It was such good TV!
