Adam Sandler returned to "Saturday Night Live" for the first time since 1995 to sing a chorus of "I was fired from NBC" in his opening monologue, with the help of Chris Rock and Pete Davidson.
On his first turn as "SNL" host, Sandler noticed the amount of time that had pbaded since he was a young man in his 20s working as a writer and interpreter on the show from 1990 to 1995. Finally, he started singing with the ballad " I was fired by NBC. "
Example of letter:
"Maybe they were fed up with Cantina / But I think they just hate Jews."
Rock, the superstar comedian who also worked on "SNL" during Sandler's tenure, joined him on stage for a chorus of "I got fired." The current "SNL" trouper Pete Davidson left for a sincere chorus until Sandler reminded Davidson that he had no, technically, he has been fired by NBC yet.
"Be patient because it will come soon," Sandler joked.
The melody ended with a note of power chord with Sandler's straps: "NBC said it was over / Then I won over $ 4 billion at the box office / so I guess you could say I won."
The "Saturday Night Live" event included a parody of "Game of Thrones" and "Avengers: Endgame," with characters from both franchises competing with each other on "Family Feud." Kenan Thompson limited the host of "Feud" Steve Harvey.
"You know it's dark when you can not even see white people," Thompson said as Harvey, referring to this week's debate on lighting standards in the most recent episode of "Game of Thrones."
Kate McKinnon played the warrior Brienne of "Thrones." Leslie Jones played Groot "Avengers". "Bitch, I'm Groot," Jones told Thompson repeatedly.
In a later sketch, "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon and Kristen Wiig made surprise appearances as party goers at the "Sandler Family Reunion".
