Nicki Minaj was tapped as the musical guest to close out another season of "Saturday Night Live." She also appeared in a skit as a total mean girl, but she had a good reason. Everything inside...
Nicki Minaj returned to 30 Rock for her third time as the show's musical guest. But, this time, chick tapped into her acting background. Y'all know Nicki went to LaGuardia High School, a performing arts institution in NYC.
The Head Barb tapped into her rap battle persona for a funny skit with Tina Fey, Aidy Bryant, and Kate McKinnon which was a parody to singing group Haim. One of Nicki's friends has an issue with one of the other chicks at the party, so Nicki gets into mean girl mode to defend her. Anything for your bestie, right?
The "Friendship Song" might just turn into your new bestie anthem. Take a listen below:
Ahead of dropping her fourth studio album QUEEN, the Young Money rapper performed her single "Chun-Li" for the first time on television. She served up Asian realness while channeling her Nicki The Ninja persona.
Peep her performance below:
The NYC raptress returned to the stage for another performance. This time, she joined Playboi Carti to perform their collaboration track, "Poke It Out." Check it:
Host Tina Fey opened with a hilarious monologue that featured Chris Rock, Donald GLover, Jerry Seinfeld, Robert De Niro and more. Peep it below:

"SNL" was heavy with the Royal Wedding skits and we've rounded up a few from last night's episode:
And here's how they closed out Season 43:
After the show...
The "Barbie Tingz" rapper hosted a afterparty at The Highline Ballroom in NYC and everyone came out to turn up. Foxy Brown, Tracy Morgan, Chevy Chase, Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Playboi Carti, Alec Baldwin and Donald Glover were all in the mix to celebrate after the "SNL" season finale.
By the way, Nicki mentioned she's doing a movie with Tina Fey. We wonder if some of the footage from the show and/or the afterparty will be used.
