Glover also used his appearance on the show as an opportunity to release his powerful new single, " This Is America ". The song debuted as Glover hosted Saturday Night Live , and was performed after an introduction from Daniel Kaluuya .

Armenian-American rock star and political activist Serj Tankian joined a pro-opposition rally in the Armenian capital, Yerevan, on May 7, appearing on stage alongside opposition leader Nikol Pashinyan before leading the crowd in song. The previous Prime Minister Serzh Sargsyan resigned amid mass demonstrations of opposition supporters. He said his first priority was to organize the first fair parliamentary elections in many years.

Pashinyan's protest movement was sparked when Sarksyan, barred by the constitution from seeking another term as president, became prime minister instead.

Sporting a salt and pepper beard, a tan and a baseball cap, Armenia's rising political star channelled widespread desire for change into a broad protest movement.

"The victory is not that I was elected prime minister", Pashinyan told the crowd. "This process should continue, in line with the wishes of the Armenian people", Jagland said. He said his ministers will be chosen "as a result of discussions" with his allies and other political groups. "You can absolutely compare him with historical figures like Gandhi and Nelson Mandela", said Eduard Aghajanyan, a city council member from Mr Pashinyan's Civil Contract party, and one of Mr Pashinyan's young, western-educated advisers. "We regard military cooperation with Russian Federation as an important factor of ensuing Armenia's security", he said, adding he will also strive to deepen Armenia's ties with the European Union and the United States.
