4. 'The Day Beyonce Turned Black'

"Maybe that song isn't for us..."

"But usually everything is!"

For those of us — Beyoncé fans, people who aren't idiots — who had to suffer through the headscratching over the artist's incredible "Formation" video and the handwringing over her Super Bowl halftime performance, this was the "no, you are not crazy" sketch we needed. The show can do send-up of horror-movie trailers in its sleep at this point (even ones regarding Queen B; see their Beygency skit) but this sort of sharp little take just beautifully cut through the crap regarding all the Bey-related brouhaha. All those folks who think "I mean, I love black artists/actors/writers, but do they have to be so, you know, like black black?" SNL and someone who has hot sauce in her bag swag would like a quick word with you.
