Kate McKinnon impersonates Bieber to poke fun at his egg-throwing case, while Drake revisits his bar mitzvah in the January 18 outing where Zamata makes her debut appearance.

All eyes were on "Saturday Night Live" on January 18 as new cast member Sasheer Zamata made her debut appearance in the episode hosted by Drake. The "SNL" first black female comedian in six years was introduced early in the episode, being featured in the monologue where Drake talked about growing up with a Jewish mother and black father. Zamata appeared alongside Kenan Thompson as Drake's aunt and uncle in the sketch where the Canadian rapper revisited his bar mitzvah.

Zamata later impersonated Rihanna in "Before They Were Stars", dancing in a fictionalized episode of hit 1990s show "Blossom". The sketch, which highlighted the early work of some hip-hop artists before they were famous, also featured other cast members playing Eminem, Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz.

Zamata showed her singing skills in "Revolution Resolution" which showed how hard it is to stick to New Year's Resolutions. She also played a pre-teen who hosted a sleepover with Drake playing her father.

The said episode additionally poked fun at Justin Bieber egg-throwing case. Kate McKinnon impersonated the teen heartthrob in "Piers Morgan Cold Open", claiming that it was Canadian tradition to throw eggs at people's homes. Bobby Moynihan, meanwhile, played Gov. Christie to mock at the bridgegate scandal.

Drake also served as a musical guest in the episode, singing "Started From the Bottom", "Trophies", "Hold On, We're Going Home" and "From Time". The episode topped the ratings among the Big 4 networks that night with an average of 4.7/12 in household results in Nielsen's 56 metered markets and a 2.7/11 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with Local People Meters.
