The most recent episode of Saturday Night Live was a highlight of the season and perhaps the past three years as well. I’d rank it right up there with the Justin Timberlake/Lady Gaga episode.
One memorable moment (of many) was the Beyonce baby skit, which was an excuse not only for Jay Pharoah to do his Jay-Z impression and for Maya Rudolph to reprise her role as Beyonce but for a bevvy of “celebrities” to congratulate them.
Justin Timberlake came out as Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon saying “Sorry I’m late, whatever…I fashioned this guitar out of a canoe” and singing something indiscernible about a ferris wheel.
Abby Elliott popped out in her Angelina Jolie seductress dress and couldn’t resist an infant thievery attempt. (“I felt the presence of a new baby in the world and I had to come see her.”)
Count Fred Armisen as Prince (“Prance” in B lingo) Taylor Swift (speechless Kristen Wiig) LL Cool J (Kenan Thompson in a “formal” kangol) and Nasim Pedrad as Nicki freaking Minaj in!
