Chance the Rapper is all set to host the final leg of a star-studded November Saturday Night Live lineup this weekend. Well, almost. First, he is dancing away the pre-show jitters in the above promo released Wednesday. “What’s the best way for @chancetherapper to get ready for Saturday?” SNL tweeted, attaching the video to provide both the question and the answer.
“Dude, how am I gonna be ready for Saturday?” Chance asks Beck Bennett. The SNL cast member then responds to Chance that he typically just dances a bit, and the video then delves into a dancing montage featuring the likes of Kate McKinnon and Pete Davidson, among others. The musician’s famous “3” hat makes a few appearances in the video, worn both by Chance and Chris Redd.
Chance the Rapper will serve as the host of the show, with Eminem taking the honors for musical guest. He’ll presumably perform his new song “Walk on Water” ahead of the (probable) release of his new album, Revival. For those unaware of Chance’s acting prowess, he previously appeared in a VICE short titled Mr. Happy and is set to star in a forthcoming murder mystery.
Check out the video above. Saturday Night Live airs on Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
