This is the first time the Emmy-winning actor has hosted the long-running late-night sketch comedy series, now in its 36th season.

Miley Cyrus was mocked during the episode in a skit called "The Miley Cyrus Show." The show's new cast member Vanessa Bayer played Cyrus by dressing up like her and using the young singer's preferred words - "pretty cool" and "like." The segment also featured Cranston as Miley's father, Billy Ray Cyrus.

West, who was the guest performer of the night, changed the lyrics of his song "Power," which originally had lyrics bashing "SNL" for mocking the moment he stole Taylor Swift's mic at the MTV Video Music Awards last year.

West also performed "Runaway," using the same keyboard he set up for his comeback performance at the VMAs last month. He was later accompanied by guest vocalist Pusha T.
