He first hit the stage with "my ex's best friend," and played the emotional track, "lonely," during his second appearance. Watch both performances below.
Though the music was electrifying, the real highlight came at the end of the night, when first-time host John Krasinski, MGK, and the show's cast said their goodbyes. As fans know, the rapper-turned-rocker is close friends with SNL's Pete Davidson, and they hugged each other so hard they literally fell off the stage.
Before the broadcast, MGK shared a series of tweets showing his excitement to play the SNL stage and hang with his BFF.
"i used to chill on Pete’s couch in his office while they’d be recording SNL when i’d come to new york and be like 'f**k, i can’t wait till they book us to perform' now it’s really happening," he wrote. "thank you EST and all the fans for this"
