Los Angeles: Music fans, take note: Katy Perry will make her triumphant return to "Saturday Night Live" on December 10, when the "Teenage Dream" chanteuse will host the late-night sketch-comedy series.

The singer announced the appearance on her Twitter account Monday, enthusing, "I`m SO excited 2 announce I`ll be HOSTING Saturday Night Live December 10!"

This will mark Perry`s first significant appearance on "SNL" since September 2010. That appearance came after outraged parents quashed her appearance on "Sesame Street" as too provocative. Perry responded to the incident -- referred to by many as "Elmo-gate" -- by putting in a very special appearance on "SNL."
