Mick Jagger may not have his Rolling Stones bandmates on the May 19 season finale of "Saturday Night Live," but he has found some serviceable fill-ins for when he performs as musical guest, in addition to hosting the show. Arcade Fire and Foo Fighters will serve as Jagger's backing band, according to Entertainment Weekly. A pair of tweets from the rock bands confirmed the news.

This is the first time Jagger will serve as both host and musical guest, but his third go as a solo performer. Perhaps "SNL" vet Jimmy Fallon will show up to do his spot-on Jagger impression.
