Hamilton writer and star Lin-Manuel Miranda hosted Saturday Night Live last night, and let’s just say that he left everyone Satisfied by performing funny-but-also-great raps. And while That Would Be Enough, it wasn’t all. When they talk about really good SNL episodes in the future they’ll Tell The Story Of Tonight. Last night. Whatever. Here are our top five favorite moments from the episode:
5. Crucible Cast Party [feat. Lin-Manuel Miranda]: This music video, in the vein of “Back Home Ballers” and “(Do It On My) Twin Bed,” covers the raucous afterparty of a high school theater production, and features the first of Lin-Manuel rapping (more to come).
4. A Day Off: Kate McKinnon as Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway tries to enjoy her day off but is constantly interrupted to do PR damage control for something crazy her candidate said. It’s safe to call this pre-taped sketched somewhat prescient.
3. Stranger Things: Featuring randomly great Dustin and Lucas impressions from Lin-Manuel and Sasheer Zamata.
2. VP Debate Cold Open: Alec Baldwin’s Trump and Kate McKinnon’s Hillary are back for a cold open that is as welcome as it is expected.
1. Lin-Manuel Miranda Monologue: And finally, the moment we are all waiting for. This is everything we’ve ever wanted in a monologue: Lin-Manuel doing a Hamilton parody rap, a Lorne Michaels cameo, and one pretty solid Trump burn.
