Last night, Lady Gaga did double duty as host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. With a strong opening monologue, the scene was set for a great show full of laughs and strong musical performances. Actually, before Gaga greeted the audience, we were treated to a hilarious sketch train wreck Toronto mayor, Rob Ford with Bobby Moynihan taking on the role. I was crossing my fingers that they’d do a sketch on this and thought Moynihan was perfect.
Gaga wasn’t afraid to make fun of herself throughout the show and I felt that in particular she really shined in the mockery of herself as “Old Lady Gaga“, playing herself in the future after people have forgotten about her. Her vocal performances were very strong and it was great that she had R. Kelly on the show to perform “Do What You Want” along with her. The two looked like they were having a lot of fun and they certainly weren’t afraid to get intimate with each other to bring the steamy lyrics to life.
Check out a handful of the sketches and musical performances from last night via the videos below. How did you think Gaga did on the show? What was your favorite sketch? Share your own opinions below in the comments.
Although she’s appeared on Saturday Night Live before, this weekend marks Lady Gaga’s first time pulling double duty. In addition to performing, she’s hosting the show. The last time that happened was just a few weeks ago when Miley Cyrus pulled it off to tremendous success. The “Applause” singer definitely has her work cut out for her. Based on the promos, she’s already off to a great start. Girlfriend saves Tinkerbell… sorta. Check out all the promos below co-starring SNL cast member Kenan Thompson.
Olivia Pope’s job is never done. Even when Kerry Washington isn’t playing the Scandal character, people seek her out to solve their problems. After all, she is the ultimate fixer. During her opening monologue on last night’s Saturday Night Live, she’s continually interrupted by SNL cast members who are in desperate need of her advice.
Another highlight of her guest host stint was a parody of the viral hit “The Fox.” She plays the hilarious girlfriend of Jay Pharoah. When she catches her man cheating, find out what sound she makes. Nagging doesn’t even begin to describe it. Kerry is a goddess. She’s not only an awesome dramatic actress, but girlfriend has some comedic chops as well. Check out both videos below.
“Dope” isn’t available to download until November 4, but Lady Gaga just unveiled the single artwork. It’ll be the third and final promo single until ARTPOP drops. Mother Monster lives up to her moniker and looks a tad frightful. Fitting I suppose since she debuted it on Halloween. Gaga spots an extremely shoulder-padded blazer ripped from the 80s, a floppy hat, some serious grill and barely-there sheer underwear. Just another typical fashionable look from the “Applause” singer.
With Kerry Washington hosting this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, naturally, a few Scandal references are in order. SNL regular Taran Killam teams up with the 36-year-old actress for a series of promos. The best one features the two playing up the ABC drama’s signature flair for the dramatics. Their looks when they look straight into the camera and utter “ooooh Scandal” are priceless.
If this is a taste of things to come, I’m definitely recording this weekend’s show. Believe it or not, Washington is only the 9th African-American woman to host in the show’s 39-year history. Insane, right? Watch all the promos below.
Gladiators be sure you set your digital recording devices to tape Saturday Night Live on November 2. Kerry Washington is breaking her SNL cherry that night and hosting the show for the first time. The Scandal star will be joined by SNL music veteran Eminem who returns for his sixth appearance on the show.
I can’t wait for the inevitable Olivia Pope sketch. Should be priceless. Surprisingly, Washington is only the 9th black woman to host in the show’s 39-year history. That’s such a low number considering over 750 shows have aired. Previous hosts include Oprah Winfrey, Queen Latifah, Gabourey Sidibe, Janet Jackson and Halle Berry. I believe Cicely Tyson was the first to do so back in 1978. SNL experts, please correct me if I’m wrong.
Last night’s episode of SNL hosted by Miley Cyrus was actually quite funny! In the opening monologue, no time was wasted making fun of Miley’s twerking and her MTV VMA performance. Myley also updated people on the whereabouts of Hannah Montana… “She was murdered,” explained Miley.
The first sketch of the night was a series of celebrity impersonations by way of a faux 50 Shades of Grey screen test. They were actually pretty bang on and it was great to see some of the new cast members putting their skills to the test. Following that sketch was “Girlfriend Talk Show“, which is always hysterical.
One of my favorite sketches of the night was the “We Did Stop (The Government)” parody. “This is our house/ This is our rules / And we did stop (the government)/ Yeah, we did stop (shut it down),” Miley sings. “Can’t you see it’s we/ Who are right?/ Can’t you see it’s we/ Who ‘bout that life?” Miley played Michele Bachmann in the parody. Check it out below if you missed it – enjoy!
Miley Cyrus returns to Saturday Night Live this weekend to host for the second time. She’ll serve double duty, performing as the musical guest as well.
The “We Can’t Stop” singer appears with SNL repertory player Taran Killam in a series of promos released today, hyping up her weekend gig. In the clips, they banter back and forth regarding Cyrus’ new image, VMA performance and most importantly, why she’s always sticking out her tongue. Find out the reason below.
