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.
“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.
