Get ready for a bad and boujee episode of Saturday Night Live. The culture invades New York City tonight as TNT’s resident loud mouth and Hall of Fame Power Forward, Charles Barkley takes over hosting duties with Migos providing the musical accompaniment.
Throughout their illustrious career, Migos have transformed ad-libs into an art-form which they’ve perfected. From the often used “skrrt skrrrt,” and “cookie,” to more mind-expanding offerings such as “Katrina call FEMA,” and “Taliban,” they know how and when to add the right amount of Flair (“Ric Flair Drip,” get it?) to a verse. For SNL’s promo, they practice their ad-libs with Charles Barkley and Kate McKinnon. Offset repeatedly drops his “Offset,” ad-lib while McKinnon creates a “Kate,” ad-lib with a low, deep voice. Barkley tries to join in on the fun, but Offset interrupts him by saying “woah, that’s my thing.”
Barkley enters sacred territory tonight with his fourth hosting gig, while this marks Migos second appearance on the show following a guest spot with Katy Perry last year. Each SNL music guest performs twice so the question remains: which songs will they chose? This week they premiered a track with Gucci Mane and Lil Yachty so will that be their song of choice? Could they possibly perform their song “Charles Barkley,” in honor of the host? Will Ric Flair make an appearance? Are they going to be on the newest season of Atlanta? These answers (besides the last one) will be answered tonight at 11:30 p.m. and check out the promo below.
