A Touching Letter from Pete Davidson to SNL 

We've got Pete Davidson's official Saturday Night Live farewell. 

After eight years on the NBC sketch comedy show, he announced his departure ahead of his final appearance on May 21. 

A friend of Pete, Dave Sirus, posted a heartfelt message and a video of Pete  

sharing an animated hug with Jerrod Carmichael on Pete's Instagram account. 

"Jerrod sent it to me last night, and it made me super emotional," Pete wrote . 

"I just got back from doing my very first update and sketch. It's crazy to think that today will be my last." 

At age 20, Peter admitted he didn't know what he was doing because he "wasn't a sketch performer." 

As he put it, he was "scared" to work with the show's veterans like 

Kenan Thompson and Kate McKinnon on "such a historic, respected platform."
