Last night, September 30, marked the 43rd season premiere of late night variety and comedy show Saturday Night Live.

The season premiere came clean with a heavy-hitting line-up with actor Ryan Gosling as the night's host and hip-hop legend Jay-Z as the musical guest. Not to mention, special appearances and cameos by Alec Baldwin and Emma Stone as well.

Last night's episode sets the bar for a star-studded season as next week's episode has Wonder Woman Gal Gadot hosting and the soul crooning Sam Smith as the musical performer.
