Saturday Night Live welcomed Drake this weekend as host and musical guest on its first offering of 2014 and also gave new cast member Sasheer Zamata a chance to shine - even though the episode certainly wasn't one of the better installments from this season.
Despite his recent musical success, the Degrassi alum proved he's still got more than a few acting chops to show off, gamely doing impressions of everyone from Lil' Wayne to a dorky dad at a slumber party. Check out some of the highlights from the episode below:
VIDEOS: Meet SNL's new addition Sasheer Zamata
Piers Morgan Cold Open: Taran Killam's take on the CNN host is getting a bit tiresome, but this edition is worth it for Kate McKinnon's impersonation of Justin Bieber, if nothing else.
Bar Mitzvah Monologue: In his opening remarks, Drake talks about growing up in Canada with a Jewish mother and a black father - and gives viewers a glimpse of what his bar mitzvah was like.
Hip Hop Classics: Before They Were Stars: Sway (Kenan Thompson) hosts a special edition of "Before They Were Stars," highlighting some of the lesser-known early work of hip-hop artists like Lil Wayne and Eminem.
Resolution Revolution: Sasheer Zamata gives her standout performance of the night in this pre-taped rap about how hard it is to stick to New Year's Resolutions.
Weekend Update: Jacqueline Bisset: Vanessa Bayer appears on "Weekend Update" to lampoon Jacqueline Bisset's awkward, lengthy acceptance speech at the Golden Globes.
