Chance the Rapper hosts 'SNL,' sings Thanksgiving and Obama songs

Chance the Rapper told Jimmy Fallon on the "Tonight Show" that he showed up to "SNL's" rehearsal with five sketches to pitch for the show.

In the skit, Chance appears alongside Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd as De-Von-Tre in a 1990s-style R&B video. The group yearns about feeling lost without a strong leader to guide them with hopes that Barack Obama will come back into their lives. "I'd vote for Joe Biden".

The decks have finally been cleared for Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi to take over the reigns of the party. The EC had given two extensions to the Congress to complete organisational polls.


"I want to be the Mariah Carey of Thanksgiving", Chance declared, at which point, cast members from SNL began joining him on stage for a hilarious, gospel-style song about the joys and perils of Thanksgiving.

"Come back Barack", they lament in the chorus. For those who don't remember, Chance and Kenan Thompson did "Last Christmas While Barack's Still Here" past year and it was maybe the best of the entire episode.

Roy Moore: 'I've unified the Democrats and Republicans in fighting against me'
The rare exception: The Greater Birmingham Young Republicans. who have pulled their support. "He will not step down". At least seven women have accused Mr Moore of sexual improprieties they said occurred decades ago.


But will Saturday Night Live redeem itself from last week's lackluster episode?

Battling the cold temperatures, Chance did his best in the sketch, but was ultimately "flummoxed" by tough names and hockey's rules. Obama is now missed more than ever, and to say what everyone is thinking, Saturday Night Live put this sentiment into song.

Tax cut would benefit average Americans
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act provides needed relief to the middle-class families and small businesses that drive our economy. Mortgage interest deduction: The House bill caps this deduction at $500,000, while the Senate leaves it at $1,000,000.


Chance has been the musical guest on SNL twice in the past and he still brought the tunes to his hosting gig.
