Taraji P. Henson's SNL Sketches, Top 10 Countdown

Taraji P. Henson SNL Sketches
Taraji P. Henson's SNL sketches all had one thing in common: They were hilarious.  The award-winning actress is responsible for one of the best Saturday Night Live episodes of all time.

Taraji Henson's SNL appearance was long overdue yet worth the wait! On April 11, 2015, the actress who plays Cookie Lyon on Empire delivered some of the best SNL sketches we have seen in a long time.  She appeared, alongside musical guest Mumford & Sons, on episode 18 of Saturday Night Live's 40th season.

We certainly look forward to future Saturday Night Live episodes that feature Empire's talented cast members.  Jussie Smollett informed us that Taraji Henson's SNL episode would be unforgettable and he was certainly telling the truth!


We would love to see Jussie on SNL! We know how much SNL would love to feature additional members of Empire's cast on the show as proven by SNL's Empire spoof.  Only true-Empire fans can deliver imitations as perfect as this:


Kenan Thompson's rendition of Lucious Lyon was spectacular and Sasheer Zamata's impersonation of Cookie was on point! Without further ado, enjoy our list of Taraji P. Henson's best SNL sketches:
