It's season 40 of "SNL" and the show is pulling out all the stops.  Prince was the musical guest last night.  He, his band 3rdEyeGirl and guest vocalist Lianne La Havas busted out an uninterrupted 8-minute medley of songs from his new albums 'Art Official Age' and 'Plectrumelectrum'.

Chck out Prince in all his guitar glory below:

Former "SNL" star Chris Rock, who was a cast member from 1990-1993, hosted the epic evening.  And we say epic because of Prince, not the barely funny episode. 

Chris was in pretty much every skit and his opening monologue--with jokes about the Freedom Tower and the Boston Marathon bombing--may have ruffled a few feathers.  Just how he likes it.

Up next: Musical guest Kendrick Lamar on November 15th.
