The “More Than My Hometown” singer joked about the controversy that caused him to get removed as a musical guest in early October.
The sketch featured host Jason Bateman, Bowen Yang, Pete Davidson, who were acting as ghosts of Wallen’s future. The future Wallen’s warn him about what’s to come and that the show would have him back in the future as not many people are willing to fly into the city right now.
“They’re going to have you on in two months from now. There aren’t many people willing to fly to New York right now,” Davidson told Wallen during the sketch.
During the skit, Wallen wore the same exact outfit that he wore that now infamous weekend in Alabama at The University Of Alabama.
Ending the sketch with a funny parody song singing: “It’s hard to focus on the future when the present’s full of girls.” At the end of the song he thanked the Saturday Night Live crew within the lyrics “for giving this poor southern boy a second Yankee chance.”

He also performed “7 Summers” and “Still Goin Down” which are both set to appear on his upcoming album, Dangerous: The Double Album, which is set for release on January 8, 2021. Watch his performance HERE.
Wallen was originally slated to make his SNL debut on October 10 but was removed (replaced by Jack White) for breaking COVID-19 protocols. He later apologized for his actions and accepted full responsibility before taking a month-long break from the spotlight to “go work on” himself.
