Ailing singer John Mayer is returning to the stage to perform with rapper Frank Ocean on the upcoming US season premiere of sketch show Saturday Night Live.
The singer underwent a second operation to remove a granuloma from his vocal cords on August 27 and was put on voice rest for six months.
Although Mayer will not be able to sing until February when doctors expect his throat surgery to be properly healed, the 34 year old has made plans to appear with Ocean on live TV on Saturday.
A post on the rapper's Twitter account reads: "SNL this weekend. Me and the bro John Mayer."
