In Case You Missed It: Rihanna Rocks Out On Saturday Night Live

While many were tuned into the fight between Mayweather & Cotto last night , Rihanna was busy igniting the stage on Saturday Night Live.

NFL star Eli Manning hosted the show, while the sexy singer performed a medley of “Birthday Cake” & “Talk That Talk” before concluding with a dance-heavy rendition of “Where Have You Been”.

Watch Rihanna rock it out below:

Saturday Night Live Takes On Kim Kardashian, Kanye West & Trayvon Martin (Video)

In a skit that was inevitable, Saturday Night Live decided to spoof the rumored romance between Kim Kardashian & Kanye West.

The episode, which aired over the weekend, was hosted by Josh Brolin, featured Nasim Pedrad (as Kardashian) and Jay Pharaoh (as West) weighing in on the Trayvon Martin case during an appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight.

The highlight of the clip for me:

“I love this woman,” Pharoah’s West said. “As I said earlier this week, she’s my Beyonce.”

Pedrad’s Kardashian added: “Only without the singing, or the dancing or the acting. I’m a zero-threat!”

Nicki Minaj Makes Surprise Appearance, Performs With Drake On ‘SNL’

Last night was officially Young Money night on ‘Saturday Night Live’. Not only did Drake take part in two skits , he also hit the stage to perform his latest singles.

Though he performed his hit, “Headlines” on his own, Nicki Minaj took the stage, adorned in a curve-hugging, barely-there bodysuit, to perform “Make Me Proud” with her label mate.

Watch the two performances below!

Drake Plays A Rapping Werewolf and Gets Silly With Andy Samberg On ‘SNL’

Last night on ‘Saturday Night Live’, Drake made his debut on the show & brought back his acting skills from his days as Jimmy on ‘Degrassi’.

In an interview earlier this week with MTV, Drake revealed that he literally begged to showcase his acting chops on the show:

“I’m dying to, man. I was begging,” he said about acting during the late-night sketch show. “I was begging everybody like, ‘Please let me get a skit. Please let me be involved in something.’ So I believe last word I got was that I’ll be working on something or doing something with the show other than performing.”

In Drake’s first skit, he took part in a (very literal) ‘Very Brief Interview’ with Andy Samberg,then he went on to ‘A Very Close Interview With Drake’ (which was also very literal). Hilarity ensues as Andy interviews Drake in a sarcastic interview, a racist interview, a wordless seduction clip & finally, an extremely dark interview.

Laugh along below:

Drake also played alongside the show’s newest cast member, Jay Pharaoh, for a skit in which he was a teenage werewolf — a rapping teenage werewolf. Watch as the two perform their Halloween-themed single, “Big Jackin”:

Must say that Drake did an amazing job showcasing his acting skills last night! How well do you think Drake performed as comedic actor?
