NEW YORK, NY - MAY 27: People wait in line to see the matinee show of The Lion King on May 27, 2015 in New York City. The Broadway season broke records with 13.1 million attendees and $1.365 billion worth of tickets sold in the theater year, which ended Sunday. (Photo by Andrew Burton/Getty Images)

Every once in a while, ‘Saturday Night Live’ knocked it out of the park. 

Taking playful jabs at Lin-Manuel Miranda, Cardi B & Offset, Oprah, Eminem, and more, it seems like almost every performer nailed their slot. Seriously, how does Keenan Thompson not look like LL Cool J and still ace it? And can we talk about that Celine Dion?

The big part of why this was probably brought up as a skit was that it was reported that Migos wanted to be on ‘The Lion King’ as the hyenas, so we’re guessing that’s why Cardi & Offset were brought into the mix.
