Watch Jay Pharoah bust out his iconic SNL Jay-Z impression in exclusive Masked Singer clip
It turns out that Rhino's biggest fan on The Masked Singer is Jay Pharoah. The comedian, who will serve as a guest panelist on Wednesday's semifinals, couldn't stop gushing over the contestant and even brought his friend Jay-Z along to express his true feelings.
In EW's exclusive clip ahead of the new episode, watch Pharoah's spot-on impression of the famous rapper. During his six-year tenure on SNL, Pharoah was famous for his riffs on Jay-Z, Barack Obama, and countless other celebs.
"First of all, you're beautiful, you know?" Pharoah tells the gentle giant as Jay-Z.
He even instructs Rhino to stand by host Nick Cannon, and the photo-op was so cute Pharoah says "you got me out the impression."
"Man, stop taking people's hearts," he says, causing Ken Jeong to burst out laughing.
