  • Tour the Millennium Falcon with Donald Glover in New Featurette

Glover's own alter-ego, rapper/singer Childish Gambino, effectively stole the show, if such a thing is possible.

It's doubly amusing considering the history of black players on SNL is one of talented performers, often underutilized and unappreciated, being forced to exit in order to find their true comedic voice - from Chris Rock to Jay Pharoah.

Saturday Night Live also revealed another Star Wars skit earlier today, one that was cut from an older episode, but it was nowhere near as amusing.

Kashmir University professor killed within 36hrs of joining militancy
Soon intense clashes rocked the area and one civilian suffered injuries and was hospitalized. Mobile Internet services also remained suspended for the second day in the region.

While hosting and performing on Saturday Night Live over the weekend, Donald Glover dropped a new song and music video under his stage name Childish Gambino. So who is kicking SNL off tonight? "Just four black people, though". Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Thandie Newton, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge star alongside Glover.

The video sees a topless Childish Gambino moving through a warehouse pulling out all kinds of insane dance moves, but before things really get going he shoots a man in the head.

Solo: A Star Wars Story will blast off May 24 in Australia and May 25 in the United States and UK. Funnily enough, Saturday Night Live may have provided us with the most extended look at Glover's Billy Dee Williams impersonation before Solo debuts on May 25.

Pat Keating, head traveling lad representing O'Brien, reported to Dubai racing officials that the son of Scat Daddy shipped well. Justify , who made his debut on February 18, was about as impressive as a 3-year-old can be in winning the Santa Anita Derby.

"This Is America", which has been trending on Twitter since its release, is a poignant statement about gun violence in the U.S. The music video starts off with a shooting, as a shirtless Gambino dances jubilantly away.

And while Donald Glover did a great job playing a range of characters many viewers were also excited to see Stormy Daniels in the SNL opening sketch.

Then, towards the end, he holds his arms out, raps the line, "They gonna find you that blocka", which is slang for the sound a firearm makes when it's shot.
