The rapper could barely keep it together.

Chance The Rapper did it all on last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live. He sang, he hosted, and, in a standout sketch from the show, he danced (supposedly at the direct request of Earth, Wind and Fire.)

Keeping with the evening’s Fright Night theme, the Chicago star took instruction from Kenan Thompson’s slowly unraveling werewolf choreographer. Front and center for the recital, Chance could barely keep it together (which consistently makes for the best SNL moments) as Thompson fumbles with a range of blinds and unveils his full canine-ish form with each glimpse at a relentless full moon.

Earlier in the evening, Chance performed The Big Day‘s “Handsome” along with Megan Thee Stallion. He closed the show with a full string section and a half-animated video transmission from his daughter.

Watch the sketch below.
