Taraji P. Henson is a Motown Singer in Unaired ‘SNL’ Sketch

Taraji P. Henson SNL

Back in April, Taraji P. Henson hosted an amazing episode of Saturday Night Live– but a great sketch was left out.

A sketch depicting Henson as a Motown front woman, which was cut for time, has surfaced on the sketch comedy show’s official YouTube channel.

In the sketch, the actress is joined by Leslie Jones, Cecily Strong, Kate McKinnon as members of the girl group The Sparkelles. The group is forced to make up songs on the spot during a live television performance.

Henson will be returning to television screens when Empire premieres next month.
