Prince To Play SNL With Host Chris Rock

It’s kinda hard to believe that Chris Rock has only hosted SNL once (in 1996), and that Prince has only performed on the show twice (in 1981 and 2006). But on November 1, Rock and Prince will do the show together. Of course, Rock is a longtime Prince fan: He’s got a good joke about Michael Jackson Vs. Prince, and in 1997, he sat down with Prince for a VH1 Artist Interview. And Prince is a funny motherfucker (a sexy one, too, of course), so it seems pretty likely they’ll share the stage for a skit at some point.

The Rock/Prince episode airs a week after the Jim Carrey/Iggy Azalea episode — and based on this Azalea tweet from last week, she’ll be joined on the SNL stage by MØ for new single “Beg For It”:

Last week’s SNL, featuring Bill Hader and Hozier, tied for the lowest rated episode ever.

Let’s go watch that old Chris Rock/Prince interview again:
