Pete Davidson Takes On Kanye + Ariana During Final SNL Show: Look + Listen

As Pete Davidson said goodbye to Saturday Night Live during his final farewell, the 28-year-old comedian showed up on the “Weekend Update” segment of the season 47 finale (5.21) for a look back on his eight-year journey as a cast member on the iconic sketch comedy series.

Sitting beside “Weekend Update” co-hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che, Davidson started by acknowledging the “millions of people only watching to see if I bring up Kanye,” a reference to his relationship with Kim Kardashian and her ex-husband Kanye “Ye” West.

The King of Staten Island star recalled several fond memories he had of longtime SNL producer Lorne Michaels, including their phone call about the comedian’s engagement to Ariana Grande. Remembering the conversation, Pete said, “I said, ‘Lorne, I just got engaged to Ariana Grande after dating for two weeks.’ He said, ‘Oh, hold on for dear life!’”

Elsewhere in the season finale, Eminem made a memorable cameo in a musical sketch paying tribute to Michaels. In the cut-for-time spoof, titled “Forgot About Lorne,” Davidson gets blasted by the superstar rapper for doing yet another rap music video parody.

In addition to Davidson, SNL cast members Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant and Kyle Mooney are also departing the show following the season 47 finale.
