#SNL: JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE DRAWS BIG LAUGHS FIFTH TIME HOSTING “SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE”
So pretty much everyone on the Internet is raving about Justin Timberlake‘s fantastic fifth time hosting Saturday Night Live and despite the dependency on lewd humour, there never was a dull moment as he charmed his way through Pre-taped/Live Sketches and Performances of his latest two Singles.
Timberlake started off tonight with a Cold Open, doing a parody of Elton John performing Candle in the Wind in memory of recently-deceased Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez. “Goodbye Hugo C…”, he sang. The Actor/Singer/Songwriter/Entrepreneur was joined also by Saturday Night Live Veterans, who like him previously hosted five times including Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, Candace Bergen, Steven Martin and Dan Aykroyd. The latter two even came back to reprise their roles as the sleazy Festrunk Brothers in a Dating Game Sketch enticing Vanessa Bayer, while Timberlake and Andy Samberg too tried seducing her with some raunchy ’90s-inspired R&B. Think Dick in a Box, but like a fivesome.
Also brought back was his Liquorville Sketch, which prior saw him perform alongside Lady Gaga. This time around he dressed-up as a giant piece of Tofu promoting Veganism, with his own takes of Chic‘s Le Freak, Rihanna‘s We Found Love, Vanilla Ice‘s Ice Ice Baby with Vegan-friendly Lyrics.He capped it all off with his own take on Internet Viral Sensation The Harlem Shake but instead, The Vegan Shake. Amazing!
Watch it below:
With his third solo Disc The 20/20 Experience due later this month, Timberlake made us remember why it is we love him so with stunning renditions of Suit & Tie (joined on-stage by Jay-Z) and Mirrors, both drawing loud cheers, sounding impeccable backed by The Tennessee Kids Band.
Just when we thought the laughs weren’t big enough, a Video Sketch of a fictitious Series with Nasim Pedrad titled She’s Got a Dick, where Timberlake‘s Character has to come to terms with the Woman he loves having some “surprise” male anatomy. Keenan Thompson also appears on the Sketch curiously questioning Timberlake about its size.
Full Videos will be up on Global Television‘s Website tomorrow for Canadian Viewers.
