At the start of this month we learned that Academy Award-nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe (who starred in Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire) would be hosting Saturday Night Live and earlier this week we got to see the promo vids of Gabby hyping up her gig. Well, the ep aired last night and — thankfully — just as I suspected, Gabourey KILLED it as host of SNL:
While the young actress was a bit nervous (flubbing a few lines here and there) she was professional enough to just keep going and bring the funny. I loved every single skit that she appeared in. Like the episode with Tina Fey as host, Gabby‘s SNL last night was one of the best the show has all season long. Her opening monologue was genius and the Digital Short she did with Andy Samburg was simple, yet hilarious! Last night’s ep was cemented as one of my faves when I saw the Alarm Clock skit (I know, it’s dumb … but I loved the previous Door Bell and Car Horn skits as well). After the jump, check out video of all of the very funny SNL skits that featured guest host Gabourey Sidibe — and prepare to LAUGH …
Unfortch there isn’t an official clip of Gabby‘s opening monologue (which is really dumb considering it was one of the funniest bits of the night) but you can watch it HERE in the online stream of the entire episode on NBC.com.

I loved this entire ep. I think the Frank Sinatra skit was the weakest of the bunch but Gabby was cute in it so she gets credit for making it, at the very least, watchable. I am so happy that SNL decided to feature Gabourey Sidibe in this way … I think she showed a lot of people just how truly talented she is as an actress. I love her so much!! What did y’all think of her performance? Funny, right?
