    Prince will make history when he returns to the SNL stage as the ep's musical guest on November 1.

    It is his first appearance since February 4, 2006 and it will be a rousing eight-minute long jam session, with no commercial interruption. The party will feature Prince, along with his all-female band 3RDEYEGIRL (guitarist Donna Grantis, bassist Ida Nielsen, and drummer Hannah Ford Welton).

    In the 40-year history of SNL, most performances have been broken up into two segments, often at midnight and one just before the 90-minute classic sketch comedy show ends. But Prince, known for his spontaneous and electrifying three-hour concerts in venues both massive and intimate, will perform his set in the middle of the show with no closing encore. It's anyone guess what the songs will be, but undeniable that it will be an incendiary and history making performance.

    Ooh! We cannot wait for Prince to make history.

    The host for the November 1 show is Chris Rock. So this is one SNL episode you do not want to miss.

    Will you be tuning in or DVRing that shit?
