Last night during the SNL season finale, the show hit a milestone when Andy Samberg and fellow Lonely Island member Jorma Taccone announced that this would be their 100th Digital Short. To help celebrate the occasion, the boys enlisted the help of teen heartthrob Justin Bieber to sing along with them.
But, Justin wasn’t the only cameo. You can’t truly celebrate 100 Digital Shorts without the help of some of the best characters from shorts past. Featured in the short are Keenan Thompson as Reba and of course, Shy Ronnie. Even Justin Timberlake reappears with his d*ck in a box and Natalie Portman gets her rap on once again. But the best part is how the boys choose to celebrate. Want to know? Check out the digital short featuring a slew of cameos below – “then throw it on the ground!”
Last night, SNL aired their season’s finale episode with a bang with the help of show veteran and alumni, Will Ferrell. Alongside Will for the evening was musical guest Usher who brought two of his new, sexy-time songs with him.
Usher’s first performance of the evening was of his newest single, “Scream.” I absolutely love this song. The lyrics are totally dirty and the beat is really great. However, I was totally disappointed that Usher only brought two male back-up singers with him and not a barrage of back-up dancers. What the hell Usher? I was so ready for a big dance show for this number and instead, I got you gyrating with your mic stand and some band hand choreo with you and your singers. He did sound great though if that counts as any sort of consolation prize.
His final performance of the night was the Diplo produced track, “Climax.” I love this song as well but I have to admit, it didn’t translate into a live performance. Usher’s falsetto wasn’t as on point as usual and his voice actually cracked in one part. But, when took off his jacket and revealed his gun show, he had all the boys and girls and the audience “climaxing.” Check out both performances from last night’s SNL below.
As we’ve previously informed you, the ridiculously hilarious Will Ferrell is heading back to his old stomping grounds to host SNL this coming weekend with musical guest, Usher. This is the second last episode before the season finale on May 19.
The promo videos for this week’s episode have been released, featuring Will Ferrell alongside SNL cast member and movie star, Jason Sudeikis. The two talk about their Cinco De Mayo weekend experience, reveal some confessions, have a stuck race, and talk about doing live television. Although Ferrell says he’s a little nervous, I’m certain we can expect a laugh-out-loud episode from this veteran comedian.
Check out the promos below and share your thoughts on what your favorite “Will Ferrell” SNL sketches or characters are in the comments.
Last night, Eli Manning hosted SNL with musical guest Rihanna. The episode wasn’t the greatest, but there were some funny skits that made it worth watching.
Rihanna’s first performance featured both “Birthday Cake” and “Talk That Talk“. She sang in front of a giant spider web and did a lot of vagina-tapping, as she repeated the word “cake”. The second performance was amazing, with Rihanna singing her single “Where Have You Been“. The performance had a similar ancient Egyptian theme to the music video that was released earlier in the week. She and her sexy backup dancers recreated a lot of the choreography featured in the video and it was definitely my favorite performance on SNL in a while. Rihanna is one sexy lady!
Watch both performances below and be sure to tune into SNL next week to watch Will Ferrell with musical guest Usher!
Funny man Will Ferrell is heading back to his old stomping grounds to host SNL this May, making it his third time hosting the show since he left in 2002. He’ll be hosting the May 12 episode with musical guest Usher (I hope he performs his new single “Scream“)!
New York Giant Eli Manning will be host on May 5, accompanied by musical guest Rihanna (maybe “Shy Ronnie” will make a special appearance). SNL‘s Season 37 finale is set to air May 19 but the host and musical guest have not yet been announced.
Since 2002 when he left, Ferrell really dove into the film industry with films that include: Elf (2003), Old School (2003) and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2008). More recently, he guest starred on The Office. Outside of movies, several years ago Ferrell uploaded a hilarious video that went totally viral. Check it out below for old time’s sake.
You know you’ve made it when you’ve been spoofed on “Saturday Night Live“. Sure, Andy Cohen has a pretty wicked day job as Executive VP over at Bravo and has his own talk show, but it’s still nice to get the SNL seal of approval. While Cohen is flattered and enjoyed the skit, a few of his famous buddies weren’t as pleased. They thought it was mean-spirited and sucked. So sensitive ;) Check out a few tweets:
“If only the guy playing you had actually thought abt his “impression’…I thought it sucked. He dint say ‘sweetie’!” – Kristen Johnston (3rd Rock From The Sun)
Wow–that was a brutal spoof on SNL of @BravoAndy on @Bravotv #WWHL …kind of surprising.” – Chris March (Project Runway, Mad Fashion)
“You are much more butch than they portrayed you last night, fyi!” – Ben Harvey (Radio Host)
If you read Homorazzi.com regularly, you know I’m a huge Andy Cohen fan. I love me some him. IMHO, I thought the SNL segment was spot-on. Cast member Taran Killam did a fantastic job of capturing Cohen’s loveable quirks. Perhaps, Cohen is sometimes guilty of loving attention too much, but don’t we secretly as well. The references to all the Bravo-lebrities, the live aspect of “Watch What Happens Live” and seemingly random comments like “I’m Like A Shark“, had me laughing in stitches. This weekend’s host Sofia Vergara also shined in the Andy Cohen lampoon. She played one of the characters from Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset“. It was definitely one of her better segments on the show.
How exciting! Next weekend, SNL is introducing their first ever out lesbian cast member: Kate McKinnon! She will make her debut with the sexy hilarious host, Sofia Vergara on Saturday, April 7. (“Ay, Jay! It’s so exciting!”).
There has been some speculation that Kristin Wiig might be leaving SNL after this season, which would be devastating. That being said, if she’s more or less going to be her replacement, it must speak to how funny she is. I’ve got a good feeling about her and can’t wait to watch her this weekend.
To get a feel for her, watch some of her work in the two videos I’ve included below!
This just absolutely made my day! As you probably saw already, when Lindsay Lohan hosted SNL last weekend, they did a hilarious Real Housewives parody called: The Real Housewives Of Disney. It was by far the best part of the episode and could quite possibly be one of the funniest sketches of the season.
Now, NBC and SNL have released the deleted scenes and bloopers from the filming of the sketch. Brilliant! See Lohan crack up when Kristen Wiig yanks on her Rapunzel-weave and the many versions of Prince Charming’s signature laugh. OMG, and when Wiig as Cinderella says, “Oh wait, did we forget to invite Mulan?”, the whole table bursts out in laughter while Cinderella admits that they didn’t invite her on purpose. LOL.
SO many funny moments. The look on Belle’s face when Prince Charming and Doc walk out of the bathroom…together. Scandalous! Seriously, you will love this. Enjoy the video below.
