Before they performed their 1997 hit single “A Song for Mama,” they were introduced as the episode’s musical guest by “SNL” regular Michael Che.
“On behalf of SNL, we’d like to send a very special Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers that can’t be with their children this year, and all of the mothers that we’ve lost. We love you, we miss you, and thank you,” Che said.
At that point, the guys (Nathan, Wanya and Shawn), along with ‘Face on guitar accompaniment, flawlessly performed the 1997 ballad remotely from their homes. As you can see in the video below, their performance was intercut with photos of the SNL cast members with their moms.
By the way, in case you didn’t know or just plain forgot, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds wrote and produced “A Song for Mama,” which appeared on the Boyz II Men album Evolution and was featured on the soundtrack for the 1997 film Soul Food.
Earlier in the day, – according to UrbanHollywood411 – Mr.Babyface posted a video tribute on Instagram to late music executive Andre Harrell, who passed away this week. Babyface said he wrote the ballad for his “dear friend” Andre. Watch below.
Also on the season finale, Alec Baldwin returned as President Trump — chugging Clorox while giving a college commencement speech by Zoom.
In the cold open, Baldwin’s Trump was told he was the eighth pick for the graduates’ speech, with preferred options Axl Rose, murder hornets and even X Æ A-12, Elon Musk’s new baby with singer Grimes.
Just one student clapped as he appeared in a trademark “Make America Great Again” hat” on their Zoom chat window, with the president telling them, “Congratulations to the class of COVID-19.”
“I’m so honored to be your valedictator,” he told them, meshing “valedictorian” and “dictator.” Check out the hilarious segment below.
This was the third “At Home” installment of the NBC sketch comedy series since the coronavirus outbreak began.
