Sitting alongside “Weekend Update” co-hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, Davidson opened by acknowledging the “millions of people only watching to see if I bring up Kanye,” a reference to his relationship with Kim Kardashian and he ex-husband Kanye “Ye” West.

The King of Staten Island star later recalled some fond memories of longtime SNL producer Lorne Michaels, including their phone call about the comedian’s engagement to Ariana Grande.

“He always gives the best advice,” Davidson said, remembering the conversation. “I said, ‘Lorne, I just got engaged to Ariana Grande after dating for two weeks.’ He said, ‘Oh, hold on for dear life!’ It’s a true thing he said.”

In addition to Davidson, SNL cast members Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney are also departing the show following the season 47 finale.
