Niall Horan will be the musical guest on this week's episode of Saturday Night Live but judging by his range of accents, he might not look out of place as a regular cast member.

Niall Horan was a guest on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this week, when he was tasked with a rather unusual challenge.

Niall was asked to recite 'Twas the Night Before Christmas in as many accents as possible and he absolutely nailed it.

The Mullingar man surprised many with his ability to seamlessly transition between Scottish, Russian, Spanish, US Southern, French, Brooklyn and Australian.

Who knew that the former One Direction star had the above in his repertoire?

Niall, whose latest single Nice To Meet Ya has already been streamed over 100 million times, is looking forward to appearing on Saturday Night Live this weekend, suggesting that the honour is on par with performing at the Grammys.

"I’ve just been up the stairs rehearsing. I mean, It’s SNL," he said.

"For us, the Grammys and SNL are like one and two right next to each other. To get the call from Lorne (Michaels) to say you’re going to be musical guest, it’s pretty sweet."

Tonight's episode of Saturday Night Live will be hosted by Scarlett Johansson.
