In a new set of promos released by the show on Friday, Leslie Jones admits she’s had some certain… dreams… about both rappers that definitely didn’t involve knitting. “This crazy, Chance and Eminem! I swear I had a dream just like this,” says Jones in the video to the two naive rappers.
In another promo, we see Eminem and Jones try and help Chance pick out a better name for himself after Eminem astutely asks, “Wait, I thought I was the rapper?” According to the two, Chance could change his name to “Chance the Hottie,” “Chance the Poet,” “Chance Encounter,” “Chance the Triple Threat,” or, “Chancer the Dancer.”
Though Chance has appeared on the show as a musical guest before, Saturday night’s episode will mark the first time that he’s taking over hosting duties. We’ll see if his comedic chops will make his upcoming horror-comedy movie Slice worth seeing.
In a different promo from earlier this week, we saw the SNL cast teach Chance how to properly get ready for his hosting duties by dancing.
Check out the video above. Saturday Night Live airs on Saturdays at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
