Drake Hosts and Performs on ‘SNL’

Drake proved that he can do it all, hosting and performing on the first “Saturday Night Live” of 2014. The Canadian rapper brought the laughs while playing Alex Rodriguez, Katt Williams, and even Lil Wayne as Steve Urkel in several hilarious skits.

During his monologue, he poked fun of his Jewish and black background by reenacting his Bar Mitzvah, and made his teacher swoon with his poetry during detention.

For the first performance of the evening, he delivered a medley of “Started From the Bottom” and his latest song “Trophies” while bathed in red lights.

He returned to sing “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and brought out Jhené Aiko for “From Time.” “You need you some of this Drake love,” Drizzy told her.

Following the show, he took to Instagram, writing, “Best night of my life.”
