Taraji P. Henson Proves She Can Take Her Empire Anywhere As She Hosts Saturday Night Live For The Very First Time!

The name’s cookie, take a bite!

By now, it’s obvious that Taraji P. Henson can do no wrong, but that fact was just reinforced over the weekend as she hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time in her 18-year career!

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.

And speaking of Kate, the star of the up-and-coming Ghostbusters reboot helmed the episode’s best bit, the Hillary Clinton-inspired cold-open!

Her ability to commit to every part of the show is going to be very welcomed once Hillary finally announces her presidential bid.

Plus, Taraji gave us a preview of what we can expect vocally from Empire‘s second season during her monologue!

Ch-ch-check out the best and Mumford & Sons-est moments from SNL (below)!!!
