In case you fell asleep early again and missed Saturday Night Live this weekend, allow me to fill you in on some of the high-points before class or work - I wouldn't want you to be the only one thinking that Glice is some kind of new Glee spinoff show.
The Bieber Monologue
"Live From New York" was Justin Bieber hosting for Saturday Night Live. Starting from the top, the first few minutes were pretty difficult to watch. Bieber was being a little too Bieberish with the numerous camera-flirty facial expressions and over-the-top lover moves on the front row ladies. Whoopi Goldberg and Kenan Tompson lended a hand to the Biebs during his monologue.
The Pot Apology
Okay, so we were all a little shocked at the recent weed ordeal. But what better way to address the public than doing it on SNL? Following in the apologetic ways of Miley Cyrus, Bieber decided to make his public apology in a comedic fashion by being a guest on The Miley Cyrus Show as Pete DeFalco, the president of Miley’s fan club, and a pretty typical Bieber-hater. In this skit, he tells Miley (Vanessa Bayer), "You’re light years better than that douche Justin Bieber." Bieber's character continues to say, "He looks like a lesbian . . . I heard he got busted for smoking weed, he’s really sorry about it; people make mistakes and he’s never gonna do it again." Kudos Bieber... I see what you did there.
Justin played the perfect college boyfriend, who Nasim Pedrad takes home to meet her parents. The hilarious Taran Killam, who plays Eddie, Nasim’s wise-ass, obnoxious older brother who harps on a nervous mispronounciation made by Bieber's character during their introduction. As Eddie harasses the Biebs, Justin can't seem to hold back the laughter and nearly breaks character by looking directly at the camera, as to signal for help from the at-home viewing audience. Poor guy. Luckily, he takes a noticably deep breath and re-groups jumping back into character to finish off the skit. Way to go Taran, you broke the Biebs! - Glice work!
Last but not least, Cecily Strong joins Bieber in a 1950s school-age scenario where the Grease-like characters share their first date details with their pals. Initially Bieber seems to be the badass Travolta-type, but as the skit progresses it becomes more apparent that his character Billy was much younger and more innocent than we were led to believe. Turns out he is 11 and dating his buddy's babysitter. Sure, why not. This is the 50s, right?
Sure, there were other great skits, like "The Californians" and the skit where Bieber gets owned by Jason Sudeikis, but hey, these are just the last minute highlights.
