Get those DVRs ready, kids. Lin-Manuel Miranda will be hosting the second episode of this season’s “Saturday Night Live.” There are so many reasons why the genius behind “Hamilton” deserves this spotlight, and it isn’t just because “SNL” has a notorious record of ignoring Latino talent. Here are nine reasons why Lin-Manuel Miranda is going to totally slay the SNL stage.

1. He is super inspirational.

That is definitely something we would all love to do.

2. Since Lin-Manuel Miranda was just a little kid, he showed a knack for performing.
