Childish Gambino Debuts New Song 'Saturday' on SNL

Ismael LynchMay 06, 2018

During the performance, Glover also released the music video for new single "This Is America", which he performed later in the episode. So are we! And Saturday Night Live is not wasting any time getting back into things with unbelievable hosts and musical guests.

In the sketch, pals played by host and "Atlanta" star Donald Glover, Aidy Bryant, Kenan Thompson, Cecily Strong and Beck Bennett try mightily to stay silent so they won't be picked off by monsters alerted to their presence by sound - just like in Jon Krasinski's film "A Quiet Place".

Saturday Night Live tackled Kanye West's recent antics with a sketch ripped right from a horror flick.

Glover has a long history with NBC, since he was a writer on 30 Rock and also starred in the cult comedy Community.

"You guys, Kanye just tweeted", Glover says excitedly.

Of course, we wouldn't complain if Donald Glover wants to bring his Childish Gambino project over to Australia once more, but whether or not it will happen remains to be seen.

"There's nothing worst than like a third sequel, like a third movie and we're like, 'again?'" he said at the time.

During his opening monologue, Glover reminisced about his early SNL auditions. "I think endings are good because they force things to get better".

Don't miss an all-new Saturday Night Live tonight at 11:30/10:30c on NBC!
