Dwayne Johnson, Katy Perry, and SNL Team Up For Rap Video [SNL Rewind]
This weekend was the season finale of Saturday Night Live! They went out in a big way, too! Host Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson had a HUGE line-up of special guests including Alec Baldwin (of course as Donald Trump), Scarlett Johansson, and Tom Hanks (who's supposedly going to be Johnson's running mate in 2020).
In my opinion, the episode was strong. It was filled with laughs. As a wrestling fan who watched The Rock's first time hosting shortly before WWE WrestleMania 2000, I was proud to see the former WWE Champion pick up his "Five-Timers Club" jacket and see just how much he has grown as a celebrity and actor. As someone who's been "smelling what The Rock is cooking" since his WWF debut in 1996, it brings a weird level of geeky pride. This episode marked the farewells of Sasheer Zamata, Vanessa Bayer, and my personal favorite, Bobby Moynihan.
The big news that came out of the show was Dwayne Johnson announcing officially his intentions to run for President in 2020 with running mate Tom Hanks. Personally, even though they claimed on-air that the bid was "serious" and they never said it was a joke, I took it as less-than-serious. I'm sure you've heard about or seen this portion of the show by now, so I'm going to share another lesser-talked-about sketch from the show. It's an ensemble piece crow-barring many Hollywood heavy-hitters into one rap video titled "One Voice!" Check it out below!
