She features in the penultimate episode of the US sitcom, which is bowing out after nine seasons

Santigold is to make a guest appearance on a brand new episode of The Office airing on US network NBC tomorrow (May 9).

The singer took to Twitter to remind her American fans to tune in, writing:

She also posted a picture of herself with The Office‘s Ed Helms and fellow guest stars Clay Aiken, the former American Idol champion, and Aaron Rodgers, an NFL quarterback. The singer will play herself during a segment in which Helms’s character Andy auditions for a fictional talent contest called The Next Great A Cappella Sensation.

Santigold’s guest spot comes in the penultimate episode of The Office, which is bowing out after nine seasons with a 60-minute special airing in the US on May 16. It’s recently been reported that Steve Carell, who left the show in 2011 to concentrate on his film career, will be returning for a brief cameo.

Carell has yet to confirm this, but his former co-stars Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak will definitely be back for the finale. Ricky Gervais, co-creator and star of the British original, is rumoured to have turned down the chance to make an appearance.
