Following appearances at the GRAMMYs and Golden Globes as well as a secret, Valentine’s Day concert in New York City, the artist graced the stage at Saturday Night Live’s epic 40th anniversary after-party. And the crowd went crazy when he did an impromptu performance of “Let’s Go Crazy.”

And the SNL alum did not sit idly by. Chris Rock and Martin short were dancing on stage while Jimmy Fallon joined in several songs. But none of them was more surprising (or epic) than Bill Murray on tambourine.
