'SNL': Kid Cudi Pays Tribute to Kurt Cobain, Chris Farley With Bold Fashion Statements

  'SNL': Kid Cudi Pays Tribute to Kurt Cobain, Chris Farley With Bold Fashion Statements Kid Cudi had the internet abuzz with his fashion-forward performance as the musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" — with two looks that were an apparent tribute to the late grunge rocker Kurt Cobain. First, the singer performed the song "Tequila Shots" wearing a T-shirt with a photo of the late "SNL" cast member Chris Farley, who died in 1997 at age 33 of a drug overdose. Cudi also wore a green cardigan that recalled the one that Cobain — who died by suicide at age 27 in 1994 — had worn during his band Nirvana's "MTV Unplugged" performance the year before.

But will Chad ever be able to return to the show now?

Pete Davidson's infamous character Chad returned to "Saturday Night Live" this week, and he was just as careless as ever — but this time, he was also a hero.

"The Astronaut" — clearly spoofing Matt Damon's "The Martian" — tells the story of a small colony of pioneers on Mars, sent up thanks to host Elon Musk's SpaceX program. Or rather, it tells the apparent end of their story, as their oxygen supply is running out thanks to a solar storm.

"There's a backup O2 circulator outside the habitat," Musk reveals. "One of them just needs to turn it on."

Of course, it's a suicide mission, because the radiation levels outside on the surface of the planet are too high for a human to withstand. To that, our hero Chad has just one word: "OK!" Even though he's about to become a dad — to astronaut Miley Cyrus' kids, no less — Chad is totally cool with sacrificing himself for the greater good. ("Ha, sack…" Chad says with a chuckle).

Pete Davidson Slams Jake Paul Ahead Of Boxing Match: ‘He’s Not A Good Person’

  Pete Davidson Slams Jake Paul Ahead Of Boxing Match: ‘He’s Not A Good Person’ Jake Paul fought Ben Askren at the Triller Fight Club in Atlanta on Saturday night, with the YouTuber earning a decisive victory by knocking out the retired MMA fighter in the first round. Ahead of Paul’s obliteration of Askren, Pete Davidson took a joking turn at being a ringside announcer. “You can tell how professional this event is by them having me here. We are backstage at Jake Paul’s dressing room. Locker room, if you wanna call it that," Davidson joked while roaming around backstage before the fight.

He makes it to the oxygen circulator and turns it on with no problems, prompting Elon Musk to make the video feed public, so the world can see the face of a hero. And, because he's Chad, he takes that super literally and removes his helmet to reveal his face — at which point his head promptly explodes.

And that leaves us with one very important question: Is this truly the end of Chad? He's died once before, but thanks to some EMTs, he returned. But this looked a bit more permanent — though obviously, we're hoping otherwise.

As "SNL" fans took to Twitter to make clear, Chad was one of the saving graces of an overall rough show. The memes flowed freely, with one person tweeting an image of a person carrying a giant Oscar, meant for Davidson in their opinion.
