Drake's top 5 moments on 'Saturday Night Live'

On Saturday, the world gifted us with another Drake appearance on "Saturday Night Live." 

Appearing as both the host and the musical guest, Drake brought his humor and talent to the SNL stage without missing a beat. 

You can watch the episode here.

Here are Drizzy's top 5 moments:

5.  When Rihanna showed up to help him out... Or not. 

The crowd was clearly thrilled when Drake appeared to introduce Rihanna to join him in his opening monologue. However, the actual guest was almost as surprising. Drake quickly donned a wig and sang in Rihanna's signature style, even addressing some dating rumors. 


4. Jay Pharoah's conversation with Drake in his Drake voice.  

 During SNL's "Weekend Update," Jay Pharoah discussed a secret rappers' meeting and covered all of the great rappers with his impressions. The moment Drake came out to argue with Pharoah about the accuracy of his voice was adorable and spot on. 


3. When Drake used his monologue to remind us that he’s “more than a meme,” but also reminded us of all the incredible Drake memes. 

Drake's opening monologue simply brought back some of the great Drake memes we forgot about, rather than making us feel guilty about how many Drake memes we've been retweeting and liking on Instagram.


2. His musical performances of “Hype” and “One Dance” that matched up flawlessly with his classic Drake dances. 

The two songs showed different sides of Drake's new album "Views" and reminded us what a star he is. He makes us laugh, he sings and he tries to dance.

1. Drake’s Beef. 

Y’all, tears were streaming down my face. This sketch was by far the greatest moment of the night. The mock diss track of the "Saturday Night Live" cast was as ridiculous as it was entertaining. Drake reacted to one cast member moving his hat out of a chair and later to Lorne Michaels telling him he was doing a "good" job. Drake's responses were hilarious. Can we add this track to the album, please?
