The last time Chance the Rapper hosted SNL, he had just announced he would give $1 million to Chicago public schools. This weekend, when he returned for his second stint as host and musical guest, he delivered his monologue in a Chicago Teachers Union sweatshirt and voiced his support for the public school teachers in their on-going strike.
That was it for the serious stuff though. Chance helped deliver one of the best episodes so far this season, and he did it largely thanks to his singing and some unexpected cameos. For his monologue, he gave an homage to Chicago, the Second City, by singing about second-best things that are actually first-rate, like Burger King fries and the Percy Jackson series. Some of his faves are questionable (Angle over Buffy?) but, hey, it's his song.
In another music-driven sketch, the Ditty of the Damned, Heidi Gardner and Kyle Mooney get interrupted in their graveyard make-out session by four ghosts who sing cautionary tales about how they died. All except Chance, that is, who really, really doesn't want to talk about it, until he's pressured to sing about his extremely messy-sounding death by electro-prostate fetish.
And of course, there's the actual musical numbers. Chance introduced himself for his first performance, with a video of his daughter giving him time to dash to the stage for "Zanies and Fools,". For his second, he brought out Megan Thee Stallion to help him perform "Handsome," proving that Hot Girl Summer is more than just a calendar season. And as an added bonus, he was introed by a shirtless Jason Momoa with fake nipple rings. Enjoy.
