Last night, Adam Levine ditched his bandmates once again to take the spotlight and tackle the hosting duties of Saturday Night Live. Levine already appeared on the show this season with his band Maroon 5 as a musical guest. In his opening monologue, Levine poked fun at himself admitting that he was overachieving and attempting to act. Well, as long as you recognize it buddy. What made his opening monologue so stellar was the spoofing of his reality show, The Voice. Three chairs turned around in the opener revealing former SNL’er Andy Samberg, Cameron Diaz and Jerry Seinfeld. In the end, Levine ended up with his shirt off.
The overall tone of Adam’s sketches where, erm, gay. I mean heavily. Starting with the hilarious talk-show sketch Circle Work alongside Kenan Thomas where the two homosexual hosts dished out gay advice to straight people. They even convinced Jason Sudekesis’ character that was in fact gay. And can I say that Levine played the part really well. The gay themes didn’t stop there. In the sketch Firehouse Incident, Bill Hader took on the role of a jealous ex-boyfriend who loses his mind over Levine hitting on his ex-girl from 9 years ago whom he dated for two weeks. Hader’s character was an overly dramatic homosexual and was really hilarious.
But the icing on last night’s cake was the sketch Adam and Janet where SNL player Bobby Monahan donned a ginger wig and glasses as a Yonker’s living, Maroon 5 fan who fed Levine a few pills to take him home with her. Check out a majority of Adam’s skits below and vote in the poll on which was your favorite Overall, I thought Adam gave a strong performance minus that awful music throw down/rumble with Train, Jason Mraz and John Mayer. Definitely the weakest of the night. Did you watch SNL last night? How did you think Adam did? Share your thoughts below.
