Charles Barkley hosted SNL last weekend and actually got some favorable reviews (Ken Tucker called it "one of the more likable editions of the show in recent months"). Also funny? This rehearsal footage, in which Barkley impersonates Alicia Keys.

As we explained on Saturday, the show was delayed due to a long-running football game. The one good thing to come out of the delay, though, was periodic "We promise it'll be on sooner or later!" bonus footage from rehearsals—including this gem, in which the viewer expects to see Keys rehearsing Empire State of Mind, but is instead treated to Barkley in a wig and hoop earrings. Get it, girl~

If you're interested in checking out some of Barkley's other great moments from Saturday's show, the full episode is available on Hulu.
