The creator and star of & # 39; Atlanta & # 39; also served as the musical guest.
In the 5th episode of Saturday Night Live, Donald Glover was both host and musical guest under his stage name Childish Gambino. Zoë Kravitz and Daniel Kaluuya introduced him to the musical performance segments.
The show used his musical skills throughout, starting with a rap group Migo's parody with Glover, Chris Redd and Kenan Thompson as members of "Friendos". Her music video was interrupted with group therapy sessions in which they worked out their problems together. Rapper ASAP Rocky made a cameo at the end.

Glover also sang in a sketch in which he played an 80s boogie singer named Raz P. Berry, who considered a random stranger his girlfriend. In a sketch Hollywood proclaimed because of the lack of black characters in Star Wars films, Glover appeared as his upcoming character, a young Lando Calrissian. He finished the sketch by singing a song called "Making Love In Space". Kenan Thompson also appeared as Saw Gerrera.
In a non-musical sketch, Glover played an eccentric lawyer defending Jurassic World in an unlawful death suit.
He also played the friend of a Melissa Villaseñor character who did not understand dirty talk. She repeatedly said wildly inappropriate things in bed, reminding him that his dad is dead and even makes a Bill Cosby impression.
Interviewed for a position as a social media intern in Mattel's Barbie section, another non-singing Glover character continued a traumatic event from Barbie's past that dryly delivers possible Instagram subtitles that allude to Barbie's inner turmoil.
And in the last sketch, Redd, Thompson, and Glover were playing inmates who were working out of prison as customer service representatives.
