What could be better than Taraji P. Henson hosting “Saturday Night Live?” Henson hosting and Billy Crystal making a surprise appearance, that’s what. 

The actor dropped by the sketch show April 11, stopping in during “The Weekend Update” as Jacob the Bar Mitzvah boy’s (Vanessa Bayer) dad. The two celebrated the end of the Jewish holiday Passover and Crystal almost succeeded in stealing the show from Henson, but she killed it. 
Fans were thrilled upon seeing Crystal on the show. 






Despite the cameo, Crystal couldn’t overshadow the “Empire” actress, who seriously worked it during her first time hosting live TV. 

It seemed like there wasn’t anything Henson wasn’t game for on the program as she acted in sketches spoofing everything from “Game of Thrones” to “Sesame Street.”
