The name's cookie, take a bite!
While the sketches themselves weren't the greatest we've ever seen, Taraji did prove that she can hang with the best of SNL's players — the best being Kate McKinnon and Taran Killam.
We have a feeling this episode is going to be like Empire — totally frickin' epic!!!
The Empire star was joined by cast member Kenan Thompson and her musical guest Mumford & Sons.
If these promos are any indication of how much fun the actual episode will be, we're all in for one amazing Saturday night!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) !!!
Michael Keaton is in the middle of a career revival after his Oscar-nominated performance in Birdman enthralled audiences everywhere.
And Taraji P. Henson is one of the biggest names on television these days with her epic portrayal of our new fave character Cookie on Empire.
Which is why we're NOT surprised to hear that both stars have been tapped to host Saturday Night Live!!!
Michael Keaton is set to host on April 4th — his first time since 1992! — with Carly Rae Jepsen on hand to perform her latest single.
Taraji is hosting for her very first time on April 11th with musical guest Mumford & Sons!
Congratulations to both of these talents! We can't wait to see them make that stage their own!!

Festival season is officially upon us, y'all!!!
In less than a month, hundred of thousands of youths will be flocking to the Empire Polo Club in Indio California for three days of musical bliss at Coachella!
But if you're not able to make it to this particular hipster hangout, don't worry! There are literally HUNDREDS of other festivals you can attend this year, and so far they're nabbing some pretty impressive headliners!
Earlier this morning, Summerfest in Milwaukee, Wisconsin announced their lineup with Kendrick Lamar, Keith Urban, Ed Sheeran, Florida Georgia Line, Kings of Leon, Linkin Park, and Zac Brown Band listed as the Marcus Amphitheater Headliners!
This is a lot to handle!
Well, apparently, Russell was making a documentary of his own at the exact same time called BRAND: A Second Coming which just premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival on Friday night… except he didn't attend!
After filming for seven years, the 39-year-old decided that seeing his marriage fall apart for a second time on-screen was just too much.
He shared a statement on his website apologizing to the film's director, Ondi Timoner, saying:
While Mumford & Sons' first two albums weren't for everyone, you can't say they didn't have a distinct sound.
However, the same cannot be said for their third studio album Wilder Mind if their new single Believe is any indication of what's about to come.
Gone are the banjo and the harmonica that gave M&S their Grammy-winning edge, and what's left is just another rock band aiming to make it big on the radio.
That's not to say that Believe isn't a good listen, we just wouldn't have been able to tell you that it was by the same guys who sang I Will Wait.
Ch-ch-check out the song that is sure to be attached to a sad car commercial at some point (below)!!!
We're feeling a lot of relief right now!
Mumford & Sons have been the talk of all the towns recently as some have speculated that the British folk band was close to dissolving!
HOWEVER we're hearing they're totally still together, and they're actually planning on playing at least a few performances in the near future!
Including this year's 2015 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival!
We are definitely excited to see them play in all of their glory! Heck, based off the ongoing rumors, who knows if this actually will be one of their last performances!
We better get our tickets now! And you should, too!
