Kanye West apparently is not on the invitation list, leaving the stage wide open for Taylor Swift, who will host Saturday Night Live on Nov. 7, NBC has announced.

Swift, who performed on the 35-year-old satirical program in January, will be hosting for the first time, an opportunity she calls "mind-blowing," according to a statement. She adds, "I love being around people who I feel have a different kind of creative genius. And the funny genius is definitely a fascinating one to be around."

Of course, it wasn't so funny on Sept. 13 when West interrupted Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards while she was accepting for best female video. Days later, he officially apologized.

While it made for bad manners, it also made for good TV. The incident will also likely serve for inspiration for some laughs at West's expense come the SNL gig.

"I've been thinking about skit ideas for a long time," Swift, 19, tells the Associated Press. "There are definitely some hilarious things that have happened to me over the past couple of months that I think will be pretty substantial skits."

Besides SNL, Swift will also perform on Dancing with the Stars, in an appearance scheduled for Oct. 27.
