Nicki Minaj Stars in 'SNL' Parody of Haim 'Friendship Song' - Watch Now!

Saturday Night Live cut a skit for time during its broadcast on Saturday night (May 19) – but luckily we still get to see it!

The skit featured evening’s host Tina Fey, Aidy Bryant and Kate McKinnon, with a special guest appearance by the episode’s performer, Nicki Minaj.

The funny bit parodied a Haim-style song about friendship and tearing other people down, poking fun at the sister act’s signature moves and riffs. And Nicki supplied a hot verse, too!

HAIM responded to the song on Twitter: “CAN’T BELIEVE THIS IS REAL,” they wrote.

Melissa McCarthy Makes Surprise Appearance on 'SNL' as Michael Che's Stepmom - Watch!

Melissa McCarthy stopped by Saturday Night Live to check in on her “stepson!”

The 47-year-old actress made a surprise appearance on the hit sketch show on Saturday (May 12) during the “Weekend Update” segment to play Michael Che‘s stepmom.

Melissa played the dotting mom that laughed at every single line that Michael tried to turn into a joke.

Melissa then went on to embarrass Michael by sharing stories of her stepson when he was younger.

“When Michael was little, he had very juicy little buns,” Melissa joked. “They’re still juicy, but they’re different now.”

Melissa then turned her attention to Michael‘s co-host Colin Jost: “You also, I’m sure, have juicy buns. I’ve seen you in bike shorts, and I think you look terrific.”

'SNL' Cast Members Are Joined by Their Moms During Cold Open - Watch!

Saturday Night Live is celebrating Mother’s Day a little early!

During the cold open on Saturday night’s (May 12) episode, the cast decided to skip their usual political skit and instead had the cast members hit the stage with their moms to wish them all a Happy Mother’s Day.

While they were on the stage, some of the moms took playful jabs at the show for constantly cracking jokes about President Trump and politics.

“I don’t understand why everyone’s focused on President Trump at all when you should be focused on Jesus,” Chris Redd‘s mother said.

“Jesus isn’t president, mom,” Chris pointed out.

“And that’s the problem!” she said.
