Ne-Yo's Ready for His "SNL" Debut; Prepping Tour 

ABC/Donna SvennevikNe-Yo's been a star since 2006, so it's hard to believe that he's never performed on Saturday Night Live.  All that changes this weekend, though, when he makes debut on the show, in support of his album, R.E.D

The singer says, "I'm really excited about [doing the show].  Jamie Foxx is going to be hosting, so it should be pretty darn funny!"

It's not known whether Ne-Yo will appear in sketches in addition to singing, but he could; after all, he's been in several movies, including Battle: Los Angeles and Red Tails.

Even if he doesn't do any acting on SNL, Ne-Yo's got plenty on his plate: he's an executive at Motown, where he's writing songs for the label's entire roster; he's preparing a tour for 2013; and he's writing music for Beyonce's new project.  "I'm keeping busy, man, keeping busy," he laughs. "Finding more and more reasons to not sleep!"
