This is EVERYTHING! The Weekend Update on ‘Saturday Night Live’ was absolutely hilarious on Nov. 5, and the cast even enlisted the help of a few Chicago Cub players! That’s not all: Bill Murray also joined in for the ultimate singing sketch!
LOL! Colin Jost, 34, and Michael Che, 33, are at it again. Ahead of election day, the superstar cast of SNL has been tackling every major scandal in the political realm. But tonight, they took a different approach with “Weekend Update,” doing the FIRST ever voice contest. Chicago Cubs players Anthony Rizzo, David Ross, and Dexter Fowler were greeted with cheers as they showed off their vocal prowess, but the audience was treated to one more surprise with their fourth member. It was none other than Bill Murray, a former SNL cast member and major Cubbies fan. They all showed off their singing voices for a stirring rendition of “Go, Cubs, Go.” After their first World Series win in 108 years, they deserve all the recognition!
The athletes also showed off their twerking skills, stripping down to their underwear for another sketch. Meanwhile, Dana Carvey even stopped by for the “Weekend Update,” portraying the Church Lady while commenting on the election. She even blasted Colin for his voting choice, saying, “I suppose you’re going to support your favorite candidate Satan!” LOL! The actor last appeared as his iconic character in May, but his portrayal goes all the way back to the mid 80s. Who can forget his epic line, “Isn’t that special?!” Michael and Colin always address hot topics, so we knew they weren’t going to disappoint!
Leslie Jones, 49, even wowed the crowd tonight, flirting it up with Benedict Cumberbatch during their hilarious opening monologue. As if that wasn’t a treat enough, Solange stopped by as the musical act to perform her songs “Don’t Touch My Hair” and “Crane In The Sky!” It leaves us wondering what they’ve got in store for fans after the election, aside from an epic appearance from Chris Rock and A Tribe Called Quest.
