Shady is back.
Eminem made a surprise appearance in one of Pete Davidson’s final sketches during the season 47 finale of “SNL.” The “Forgot About Lorne” skit, which was not televised, shows Davidson paying tribute to “SNL” creator Lorne Michaels.
Natasha Lyonne, who hosted this weekend’s show, informs Davidson that Michaels is depressed because he’s always wanted to do a music video with him. To show his appreciation for the comedy legend, Davidson decides to do it.
“This guy literally did everything for me, so I’m going to repay him by making this rap video exactly how he wrote it,” he says.
Davidson goes on to direct his own rap video inspired by Dr. Dre’s 1999 hit “Forgot About Dre” starring Eminem. But Shady interrupts his music video shoot to express his disapproval.
“What are you doing?” Eminem asks, clearly disgusted with his latest parody. “I would just stop.”
“Yeah, they all suck,” Em adds. “Please just stop… It’s really bad.”
Davidson tells him, “Honestly, we’re only doing this because we love you so much, Marshall. They are like a tribute.”
Before he leaves, Em warns him, “Pete, don’t fucking do that.”
This is Davidson’s third time parodying Em. Back in December 2020, the rap god appeared as part of a Christmas-themed version of “Stan” called “Stu.” Last year, Davidson parodied “Without Me” in an NFTs-inspired skit starring Jack Harlow.
Last night’s episode was Davidson’s last “SNL” appearance after eight seasons. During his Weekend Update farewell, Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend brought up his ex Ariana Grande and also joked about the “millions of people just watching to see if I tell Kanye.”
