Roddy was forced to drop out due to COVID exposure, according to the report.

As a result, Bleachers – fronted by Jack Antonoff – will be replacing him for a SNL debut.

The show is being hosted by Ariana DeBose.

“Due to recent Covid exposure on my team and to keep everyone safe I won’t be able to perform on SNL this weekend. I’m working with the SNL team to lock in a new date though,” he wrote on Instagram.

The January 15 show was expected to feature a full cast, crew and studio audience, but final decisions are still up in the air amid the rise of the Omicron variant.
