Shannon and I watched Maya Rudolph host “Saturday Night Live” last night (Feb. 18) between glasses — notice I didn’t say shots … — of vodka and sorrel and it was great. I don’t usually watch much “SNL” and unlike other people it’s not because I hate it or anything, I just don’t remember it’s on or I’m using Saturday night as an excuse to watch some really questionable chick flick like Something Borrowed. Don’t judge me.
Last night, Maya killed “SNL,” as if I didn’t already love she and Christina Applegate’s chemistry on NBC’s “Up All Night” sitcom. My favorite skit was Ms. Rudolph as a dramatic Beyoncé with Jay Pharoh, the guy who is good at celebrity impressions, playing Jay-Z, and the pair welcoming celebrity friends to see their newborn Blue Ivy. Fred Armison as a smirking Prince = gold. Watch below starting at 17.00 and laugh with me!
ps. Sleighbells also performed “Comeback Kid” and the show’s sound was so bad I couldn’t understand the lyrics and the music just sounded like noise. Womp.
