Doing Queen Bey (and Maya Rudolph) proud! Nicki Minaj was the musical guest on the Dec. 6 episode of Saturday Night Live, and in addition to performing, the chart-topping female rapper also stepped in to play Beyonce in a holiday sketch called "Jingle Ballerz."
The skit focused on an MTV holiday special in which famous rappers and singers performed scenes from the nativity. Rihanna (played by SNL cast member Sasheer Zamata) was the narrator, while Eminem (Taran Killam), Riff Raff (host James Franco), and Rick Ross (Kenan Thompson) were the three wise men.
But the majority of the cheers and laughter happened when Justin Bieber (Kate McKinnon) and Beyonce (Minaj) stepped in as Joseph and Mary.
"Yo, I'm sorry I had to give birth out here where all the animals live. I couldn't afford a hotel room because I'm like a poor carpenter or something, I don't know," McKinnon doing her beloved impression of Bieber said.
Minaj then stepped in wearing a lengthy wig, fur coat, and flashing major cleavage, saying, "No, no, no. This moment is not about me. Let everybody have their moment" — first referencing Destiny's Child's premiere single "No, No, No" and then Beyonce's response to Kanye West's interruption of Taylor Swift at the 2009 MTV VMAs.
"This moment is about my baby boy. Behold," she continued, singing, "He woke up like this! Flawless."
The audience screamed as Minaj, who recorded the "Flawless Remix" with Jay Z's wife earlier this year, whipped her hand back and forth doing Bey's "Flawless" dance.
"One day he'll turn water into wine and we'll all be," she said before belting, "Drunk in loveeee!"
