Miley Cyrus may have gotten booted off the cover of Vogue for her twerking antics, but no matter, because she's landed a coveted guest host spot on "Saturday Night Live." On Oct. 5, the 20-year-old twerkmaster will guest host SNL for the second time, also performing as the musical guest. Cyrus is promoting her upcoming album "Bangerz," which features her much-parodied single, "We Can't Stop."

SNL will kick of its 39th season on Sept. 28. with SNL alumna Tina Fey as host and Arcade Fire as musical guest (the fourth appearance on the show for both). Following Cyrus's episode, Bruce Willis will host with Katy Perry as the musical guest (the second appearance for both) on Oct. 12.

If America should be as lucky as Germany, then perhaps Cyrus will be joined on stage by her band of twerking little people:
