Last night (October 26), Chance the Rapper was the host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. The show was a long string of highlights. Here are a few of the best moments.
Chance started early with a great monologue, where he sent a shout out to the striking teachers in his hometown of Chicago (and he wore a Chicago Teachers Union shirt; at the end of the show, several of the castmembers were wearing similar shirts). He then went into a song about Chicago, “The Second City.”
In “E-Sports Reporter,” Chance played a sportscaster who was filling in to cover “League of Legends” and like many people who are new to the epsorts world, was kind of surprised by what he saw. (If you’re like Chance’s character, check out Checkpoint XP).
In “Judge Barry,” Chance plays a judge on a real-life TV court show… but the judge makes his decisions in ten seconds or less.
In “Spooky Song,” Chance plays a ghost who is just trying to do his thing — haunting a graveyard — who is forced to detail the embarassing way in which he died.
Of course, Chance also performed. He did “Zanies And Fools,” as well as “Handsome” with Megan Thee Stallion:
Here’s hoping SNL calls Chance back to host again.
