'SNL' already gave us an exciting preview of this Saturday's November opener with news that Prince would perform an eight-minute jam session set instead of the usual 2 songs, but now it's Chris Rock's turn in the spotlight. Watch the one-time 'SNL' star break the usual promo format to hit the streets with Bobby Moynihan, and maybe, just maybe, throw in a Prince cameo!

This coming weekend's 'SNL' will already be one to watch, returning Chris Rock to the stage after nearly two decades away, alongside legendary musical guest Prince. If that weren't exciting enough, the formerly known as "formerly known as" artist will also make 'SNL' history, eschewing his two performance slots for one eight-minute uninterrupted jam session. Plus, check out a Mike O'Brien digital short deleted from last week's Jim Carrey installment!

Following Jim Carrey and Iggy Azalea's October 25 installment, 'SNL' alum Chris Rock will return to the 'SNL' stage for the first time since 1996, bringing along none other than Prince.

It's hard to imagine that anyone's partying technique would be too much for Prince's tastes; this is, after all, a man who sings about partying like it's 1999 and the sexiness of cheap thrift-store finds with equal adoration. However, it seems that there is at least one person who is too freaky for even Prince to handle. Chico Divine. Who? Chico Divine? Who? Tracy Morgan's freaky-partying alter ego.

As we head further along the 30-year nostalgia train that is 1984, the “rock star who stars in a movie that has the same title as his current album” tributes will be saved for Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ – which, if you’ve watched ‘Purple Rain’ lately, you’re kidding yourself if you think it at all holds up (though, the rock club scenes are pretty great); but it’s certainly an interesting film. Deservedly overlooked (well, except here, I suppose) will be the other film that falls into that esoteric category … Rick Springfield’s ‘Hard to Hold.’
