Drake & Jhene Aiko perform on Saturday Night Live

On Saturday night, Drake was both the host and guest performer on the season opener of Saturday Night Live, bringing along newcomer Jhene Aiko to assist him with their collab, “From Time.” At the end of every episode, the entire cast and all of that night’s guests take to the stage to say their goodbyes to the audience and the camera, and the credits run as they then hug amongst themselves and congratulate each other on another great show in the books. As hugs were being handed out, you could see in Jhene Aiko’s eyes that she wasn’t sure what to do. No one was offering her a hug, and she probably didn’t know anyone well enough to offer them one, so she just sort of stood there awkwardly. Then, as a result of poor timing, she finally thought to spin around and put her back to the camera, but it was the same time Drake went to give her a hug…and it ended up as the most perfectly awkward moment ever! LOL!

As a fellow socially awkward person, I TOTALLY feel this whole twirl move. Absolutely something I would have done! Many people feel that she curved him on purpose, but if you’re one of US, you can clearly see what was up. Ha! Watch it all go down below, and check out Jhene’s tweets in response to the incident in the gallery.
