Drake takes over on 'SNL'

Anna Faris may have hosted "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, but what most of us remember is Drake.

Everyone's favorite Canadian rapper was on tap to perform, but he also jumped in a few sketches as well.

The result was an appearance that gave the episode a few humorous highlights, one being his "Bag Jackin'" rap as a teen werewolf on "Weekend Update." We can't recall a performance that so intensely referenced Reese's Pieces, Milky Ways and Hershey Bars.

Popdust calls it his best performance of the night, but we'd say it's neck-and-neck with his "Digital Short" series of interviews with Andy Samberg.

These included an "extremely close" interview with the former "Degrassi" star, an "extremely sarcastic" one, a "matching sweaters" interview (see above), and our personal fave, the "horribly dubbed" interview.

The Young Money artist followed it up with a performance of "Headlines" as well as "Make Me Proud," along with Nicki Minaj. His album "Take Care," originally scheduled for an October 24 release, is now arriving on November 15.
