Watch Childish Gambino Perform "This Is America" on 'SNL'

Debuting the same night he hosted.

Directly following the release of his striking visual for “This Is America,” Donald Glover heads to Saturday Night Live to perform the song under his stage name Childish Gambino. Glover was one of the hosts of the pop culture show.

During his performance, the artist is joined by numerous young dancers who appeared in the previously released music video directed by Hiro Murai. He appears shirtless and is engulfed in bright lights as he effortlessly dances and raps his lyrics alongside the children. The bright laser lights are a major centerpiece of the dramatic, dance-infused performance. Take a look at the video above.

If you’re in the mood for buying concert tickets, Glover also recently announced new tour dates with Vince Staples.
