Chance the Rapper appeared on NBC's Saturday Night Live last weekend for the show's special holiday-themed final episode of the year. Continuing his trend of performing different tracks from his Coloring Book project on each show he appears on, Chance brought "Same Drugs" and "Finish Line" to Rockefeller Center's Studio 8H.

Chance also joined Kenan Thompson and Leslie Jones for their Run-DMC parody "Jingle Barack," a tribute to our last Christmas party with Obama in office. A fun send-up, the cameo from "King of Rock" DMC reminded us how great it feels to be reunited for the holidays.
