Last night’s Primetime Emmy Awards celebrated the year’s best television, from Veep to Big Little Lies and The Handmaid’s Tale. In a room full of film and TV icons, a handful of music stars helped keep host Stephen Colbert’s ceremony feeling fresh and loose, including Chance the Rapper who assisted Colbert on show opener by dropping a surprise verse on the emcee’s song and dance number.
“I love television, it’s a pleasant distraction/But just imagine taking action/I like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, in fact I’m addicted/But where’s the cop show where one gets convicted?” he rapped, peppering his TV reviews with timely cultural observations.
