Dubbed the “Porch Episode,” the performance featured a rendition of 2006’s “Lookin’ for a Leader,” including a special change of lyrics

“We had Barack Obama and we really need him now,” sang the Canadian star.

“The man who stood behind him now has to take his place somehow/America has a leader building walls around our house/Don’t know Black Lives Matter and we gotta vote him out”.
