Rapper Kendrick Lamar returned to #SNL this past weekend where he performed two of hits and was apart of one of the sketches!
Check out the details below!
This weekend, rapper Kendrick Lamar made a triumphant return to the set of “Saturday Night Live” where he performed “i” and “Pay For It” with Jay Rock. The show was hosted by first-timer Woody Harrelson, who’s show opening monologue featured his homage to Taylor Swift’s “1989” album.
Lamar not only performed his songs but appeared in a sketch where he performed a duet with Taran Killam as Barry Manilow and in the “Young Tarts & Old Farts” sketch which was a fake ad for a compilation cover album in the spirit of Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga between young and established artists (i.e. Ariana Grande and Lionel Richie and Aretha Franklin and Robyn). I cracked up at the thought (and sight) of Manilow and Lamar performing together! Also featured in the sketch were Sasheer Zamata as Diana Ross and Kenan Thompson as B.B King.

I can always appreciate it when artists are comfortable enough with themselves to relax and show a different side of them on the show! I hope he gets to appear on the show again!
