The Saturday Night Live cast may have had to film the April 25 episode from their respective homes, but that just meant there was room for an inordinate number of celebrity cameos. SNL's second at home episode featured appearances from Bad Bunny, Jason Sudeikis, and Charles Barkley, as well as an understated musical performance from Miley Cyrus and a political cold open from Brad Pitt, among others.

Of course, it's much easier for celebrities to drop by now that they're doing so from home instead of schlepping down to Studio 8H. And SNL set a high bar for themselves during their first at home episode. The April 11 installment featured a short monologue from Tom Hanks, a cameo from Larry David, and appearances from an array of former SNL castmembers during a heartfelt tribute to the late Hal Willner.

Fortunately, they were up to the challenge this week, too. A staggering 10 celebrities showed up — either to perform a song (as in Cyrus's case), to play themselves, or to portray a character (see: Brad Pitt). And while these entertainers were obviously all participating from a distance, SNL made it feel seamless, even incorporating video calls into some of the sketches. Here's everyone who stopped by (er, called in) on Saturday night.

Brad Pitt

Saturday's episode opened with Brad Pitt as Dr. Anthony Fauci, who tried to explain some of Trump's recent comments about coronavirus (please, do not inject disinfectant!!). Later in the episode, he also introduced surprise musical guest Miley Cyrus.

Charles Barkley & DJ Khaled

The former NBA star appeared in the SNL sketch "What Up With That," in which Kenan Thompson reprised his easily distracted talk show host, Diondre Cole.

Although he didn't get to say much, DJ Khaled also made a cameo. In a recurring joke throughout every "What Up with That" sketch, Thompson's character dances and sings around the stage, never making any headway with his numerous guests (poor Lindsey Buckingham never stands a chance). Khaled did, however, slip in his catchphrase at the end. After Cole thanked Khaled for his appearance, the musician said, "Well, I guess that was another one."

Jason Sudeikis & Fred Armisen

Former SNL castmembers Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis reprised their "What Up with That" characters: Armisen as a background saxophone player and Sudeikis as a man who dances joyously in a red tracksuit. Twitter was delighted.

Adam Sandler & Rob Schneider

Pete Davidson sang yet another song during Saturday's episode — this time, it was about how bored he was at home. Adam Sandler (and Rob Schneider in a brief cameo outside the Happy Gilmore star's door) made a remote appearance.

Bad Bunny

Thompson again played former Boston Red Sox player David "Big Papi" Ortiz, while Bad Bunny made a surprise appearance as himself — except in the SNL universe, he was also Ortiz's Puerto Rican cousin. The "Callaíta" singer sold Thompson's character a "big-ass pot" while wearing uncharacteristically large sunglasses.

Miley Cyrus

The pop star showed up and played a stripped-down rendition of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here," while sitting next to a bonfire.

Paul Rudd

In a quick sketch during the episode, Rudd played himself speaking to his cousin Mandy, who's become...strange in the years since.
