Radiohead returned to Saturday Night Live recently for their first performance on the long-running show in over a decade, but tonight brought Drake’s debut, complete with sketch appearances, a “Weekend Update” cameo, digital short produced by Andy Samberg’s Lonely Island crew, and — of course — performance segments. If (and that’s a big “if”) the Canadian hip-hop star needed a chance to prove his multi-faceted talents, tonight was the night. What’s more, Nicki Minaj showed up for a live take on their new collaboration, “Make Me Proud,” solidifying Drake and co.’s place among SNL’s esteemed canon in the musical department.
Here’s the proof (via Mr. World Premiere):
