Now we are wondering if Horatio Sanz will make a guest appearance on the show to reprise his famous “Elton John” character..
For the first time since 1982, Sir Elton John will appear on the Saturday Night Live stage.
The “Rocket Man” will perform hosting duties as well as accompany Leon Russell as the musical guest during an upcoming show. Russell and Elton collaborated on the 2010 release, The Union.

Elton revealed that he would be doing double duties on the show at his posh Oscar party. The function included a live auction of a pair of VIP tickets to the SNL show. The tickets pulled in $75,000 and the proceeds went to the Elton John AIDS Foundation.

The singer/composer has been busy. Currently, he has two scores (Billy Elliot and The Lion King) represented on Broadway, as well as an animated film (Gnomeo & Juliet), whose soundtrack features hits from his back catalog.

The SNL episode starring Sir Elton airs live on April 2.
