Stephen Colbert has started the 2017 Emmy Awards with a musical number.

The musical bit included cameos from the “This Is Us” cast, a nod to “Stranger Things” and “A Handmaid’s Tale” as well as an appearance from Chance the Rapper.

He gave a shout to the show Brooklyn 99 saying “I love Brooklyn 99, in fact I’m addicted.  But where’s the cop show where one gets convicted?”

He also gives a shout out to the classic show M.A.S.H and says “I still think M.A.S.H rocks but if Hawkeye can be a solider why not Laverne Cox?”
