Watch Donald Glover Live from New York ‘SNL’
Watch Donald Glover Live from New York, it’s Donald Glover. The actor-rapper trigger double duty as host and musical guest on a laugh-filled moment of “Saturday Night Live.”
Fittingly, Gambino drop a new song called “Saturday” during the show. After being introduced by Zoë Kravitz, Gambino rocked out with his live instruments in a party. “Saturday,” he sang, “All I want to do is make you dance, girl…”
Additionally, Gambino debuts his new single “This Is America.” Introduced by actor Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Glover performed the song with a group of students in school uniforms dancing with him. The set ended with an eye-catching laser light display.
Glover started the episode with a special monologue about his “SNL” auditions. While obsessed with the fact that he didn’t end up being in the cast, he tried to show that he can “do anything.” The monologue didn’t work out for him, and it ended with vomit out of a clarinet.
Although Glover addressed topical events, he also went back in time. Playing an R&B singer named Raz P. Berry, Donald paid tribute to ’80s music videos. “I tried to cut my own damn thing off,” he tells his unfaithful girlfriend. “I couldn’t do it because I passed out just from holding the knife.” Later, he realizes he wasn’t talking to his girlfriend at all.
