Chris Rock cut promos for this week's Saturday Night Live that Chris is hosting and they had Bobby Moynihan pretend to be PRINCE for one of the promo's.
PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL are the musical guests this week and they will play an unprecedented uninterrupted 8 minute jam on the show instead of 2 musical performances.
In a funny one, each time they said Prince, women would scream. Do you really wanna see Chris Rock sing "Head" tho? Maybe play that bass line perhaps instead.
Check out all the promos above.-DocFB
While you were asleep or doing something you shouldn't have, PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL have unleashed a new rehearsal for "EMPTY ROOM" mixed by Marlon & Demetrius at Paisley Park Studios.
Although a youtube clip so you do not get the best sound of this rehearsal, Prince's vocals are clean and Donna Grantis's solo is mesmerizing, although I want more of that solo.
PRINCE & 3RDEYEGIRL will be performing on Saturday Night Live this week with host Chris Rock.
Enjoy it while it is is up. You never know how long it will be.-DocFB
Diagnosis: The return of the rehearsal jams. Love it. Will the mainstream media catch this one this time?

MUSIC ICON PRINCE’S RETURN TO THE SNL STAGE ON NOVEMBER 1ST WILL SHOWCASE AN UNPRECEDENTED EIGHT-MINUTE LONG PERFORMANCE!!
PRINCE's first appearance on Saturday Night Live since 2006 will feature an 8 minute jam instead of doing 2 performances on the show.
Here is the press release for the announcement below:
The first television performance from Prince since the release of his two chart-topping albums, ART OFFICIAL AGE and PLECTRUMELECTRUM, on September 30 is not only going to be live, it will make history.
The music icon's return to the SNL stage on November 1 - his first since February 4, 2006 - will be a rousing eight-minute long jam session with no commercial interruption. The party will feature Prince along with his all-female band 3RDEYEGIRL (guitarist Donna Grantis, bassist Ida Nielsen, and drummer Hannah Ford Welton).
In the 40-year history of SNL, most performances have been broken up into two segments, often at midnight and one just before the 90-minute classic sketch comedy show ends. But Prince, known for his spontaneous and electrifying three-hour concerts in venues both massive and intimate, will perform his set in the middle of the show with no closing encore. It's anyone guess what the songs will be, but undeniable that it will be an incendiary and history making performance.
Host Chris Rock's singular request was for Prince to be the musical guest for his return to SNL as host after 18 years. It is the second time he will host the show. The two made the announcement via a press release on October 14 with a photo of Rock dressed as Prince from the film Grown Ups 2.
Also don't miss the PRINCE Spreecast this week where we will discuss PRINCE's greatest TV performances. It will air Wednesday night.
ART OFFICIAL AGE, Prince's solo album, bowed in at #1 on Billboard's R&B Chart while PLECTRUMELECTRUM, featuring Prince's new band 3RDEYEGIRL, debuted at #1 on the Rock Chart, making Prince the first artist in over a decade to debut two albums in the Top 10 at the same time.-DocFB

So we gotta ask: Funk it or Dunk it?-DocFB
