Jimmy Fallon Films a Sketch Ahead of 'SNL' Hosting Gig

When Jimmy Fallon kicked off the show with a Let's Dance monologue, who else should appear but Harry Styles, complete with jazz hands and graceful twirling.

Harry Styles performed a new track during his impressive Saturday Night Live (SNL) solo debut.

Fans have been highly anticipating Fallon's return to SNL. He was best known for hosting the "Weekend Update" segment alongside Tina Fey from 2000 to 2004. The second verse of the song reads, "Brooklyn saw me, empty avenues / There's no water inside this swimming pool / nearly over, that's enough from you / I've been praying, I never did before / Understand I'm talking to the walls / And I've been praying ever since NY".

With the help of musical guest Harry Styles, Jimmy paid tribute to the great David Bowie by gathering the audience and dancing around Studio 8H.

The publication piled on Fallon's treatment of Trump as a guest of the "Tonight Showduring the presidential campaign, referring to it as "controversial glad-handing" and claiming that it "continues to haunt 'The Tonight Show host'".

The newspaper added a subtitle that read, "Jimmy Fallon is still a comedian on an island".

Fallon filmed a number of promos with Styles who will be making his solo debut on the April 15 episode.

Harry left One Direction behind a year ago as the boys - Harry, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson - chose to go on a break to pursue their solo careers.

While it's nearly expected for Fallon to break character at some point during his appearance Saturday, many fans are hoping to see Fallon revive some of his most hilarious and memorable skits like "Jarret's Room" and his knee-slapping-funny impressions of talk show host Barry Gibb.

When host Steve Harvey (played by Kenan Thompson) asked about Mick's music as a solo artist, he quipped: "Solo?"

Of course, Harry Styles did a whole lot more than just sing on SNL. Eastern, 10:30 p.m. Central, 9:30 p.m. Mountain and 8:30 p.m.
