Was it as good as Jimmy Fallon’s SNL Christmas episode from a couple years ago? No, but it certainly was one of the better shows of Saturday Night Live’s 39th season. Definitely a great way to end 2013.

Even though Fallon was technically the guest host, sometimes it felt like it was musical guest Justin Timberlake’s show. JT got almost as much face time as Fallon in sketches, and on the flipside, Fallon practically did as much singing as Timberlake. The two multi-talented showbiz pals have always worked well together and this was no exception.

With the combined power of Jimberlake, they brought with them a few big name cameos including Paul McCartney, Madonna, Barry Gibb, and New York City’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg. With regards to the latter, believe it or not, this was his first appearance on the NBC late night show. The best sketches for me were “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” and “Do It On My Twin Bed.” Meanwhile “Waking Up With Kimye” was easily the worst. Check them all out below.

With Paul Rudd and One Direction on tap, Saturday Night Live rebounded after hitting a season low among adults 18-49 when Josh Hutcherson and Haim dropped by. Creatively speaking, the sketches improved massively as well. Rudd is hilarious on his own, but with surprise help from his Anchorman 2 cast mates, it reached a whole new level.

Kristen Wiig reprised Dooneese in a Sound of Music segment. Will Ferrell, Steve Carrell and David Koechner backed up Rudd during his opening monologue where they faced off against One Direction. Other highlights include the Michaelangelo small penis sketch, 1D concert line clip, the first black movie for white audiences and Jebidiah Atksinson’s holiday movie reviews. Check out all the clips below.

It wasn’t the best episode of the season but it was definitely better than Jennifer Lawrence’s stint earlier this year. The Saturday Night Live writers reallly let her down big time. Also factoring in the disappointment was the extremely high expectations everyone had. Luckily for Josh Hutcherson’s sake there were at least a couple of gems.

Not surprisingly, the show kicked things off with Hunger Games references during Hutcherson’s monologue. Thankfully, it was just limited to that and didn’t dominate the show. The highlights for me include the sketch about the worst subway performers and an amazing 80s tribute which included Josh wearing a mullet wig and lip syncing to “Your Love” by The Outfield. Even though he wasn’t a part of it, Aidy Bryant’s worst lady on an airplane bit was also worth noting.

I should probably mention HAIM killed it as the musical guests. My only complaint is that the sisters didn’t perform “Falling.” That’s my favorite track from them. Check out the skits and performances below.

Josh Hutcherson Is On Fire For SNL Promos

While not the youngest guest host ever, Josh Hutcherson at 21-years-old is certainly on the younger end. Just in case you’re wondering, Drew Barrymore at 7, holds that record with Macaulay Culkin as the second-youngest person at the ripe old age of 11. At that age, I was still playing with my Lego ;)

Hutcherson joins forces with Saturday Night Live regular Bobby Moynihan for a series of clips promoting this weekend’s show. The two talk about everything ranging from their worst summer jobs to The Hunger Games. Josh even jokingly spoils the ending of the highly-anticipated sequel. Everybody dies… NOT.

The Peeta Mellark depicter revealed to E! News recently that his Hunger Games co-host Jennifer Lawrence gave him advice. “She told me to not hold back and to give it my all,” he stated. I’m sure wise words given she hosted SNL earlier this year. Not only will Josh have to live up to Lawrence’s performance but also Lady Gaga’s as well. The “Applause” singer’s episode last week matched a ratings season-high. Check out the promos below.

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.

Lady Gaga Reveals Dope Single Artwork & Heads To SNL

In: Donovan, Music

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.
