Prepare for the roast of...Justin Bieber. E! News has confirmed Comedy Central will put the Biebs in the hot seat for their next roast set to air this year. The special will be filmed in Los Angeles.

"Justin has been asking us for a few years to roast him, and we just kept telling him to go create more source material first. We're thrilled he listened," Kent Alterman, president of content development & original programming at Comedy Central, said in a statement.

Ryan Seacrest first reported the Roast news.

"For years I have wanted Comedy Central to roast me. They said only if I provided them w/ more material so for a year now I have worked hard," Bieber wrote on Twitter. "Finally after all that hard work for my 21st bday it's happening. Thanks @RyanSeacrest & @ComedyCentral for the announcement. Let's do it :) Lol. #BieberRoast."

The last Comedy Central Roast was of James Franco in 2013. Other honorees over the years—it is an honor, right?—include Joan Rivers, Roseanne Barr, Charlie Sheen, Donald Trump, David Hasselhoff and Bob Saget.

Seth Rogen served as the roastmaster for Franco and the even scored 3.1 million viewers.

Our fingers are crossed Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon is involved in someway. The Emmy nominee has perfected her Bieber impression over the years, most recently lampooning his Calvin Klein ads. You can see that in all of its glory below.

Bieber responded to the popular sketch on Twitter with a simple tweet: "@nbcsnl well played. Lol," he wrote.

Roasters and the roastmaster will be announced at a later date.
