Who are the youngest 'SNL' hosts ever? This list might surprise you. All total, 9 people under the age of 18 have hosted 'Saturday Night Live' over 36 seasons.

Very few celebrities become famous enough to host 'Saturday Night Live' before they are even old enough to vote.
Some of these youngsters weren't even born when the first 'SNL' aired in 1975. Many of them, in fact. From the youngest of the young, to the almost adults (almost), here's my list of the youngest people ever to host 'Saturday Night Live.'If you're a huge 'SNL' fan, you might also want to check out these lists on the most frequent 'SNL' hosts, the best 'Saturday Night Live' monologues of all time, and the best 'SNL' original cast sketches.

Justin Bieber hosted a February 2013 episode at just 18 years old and at the height of his fame. Later, that episode would earn him the title of worst-behaved host on Saturday Night Live, as dubbed by Bill Hader and Jay Pharaoh on an episode of Watch What Happens Live.
