Watch SNL “3-Way (The Golden Rule)” Feat. Justin Timberlake & Lady Gaga

Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake revived their funky fresh new jack swing duo on tonight's season finale of Saturday Night Live, which JT hosted for the fourth time. Musical guest Lady Gaga joins the pair in this digital short, a raunchy '90s R&B-inspired throwback a la Emmy-winning holiday carol "Dick In A Box" and "Motherlover"… More »

Foo Fighters Play SNL

Foo Fighters visited SNL this weekend, and Dave Grohl appeared in two sketches. One was the SNL Digital Short where Grohl lived inside Mirren's magical rack, and another had Grohl taking over Jason Sudeikis's job as a strip club DJ. They also did "Rope" and "Walk" on the show. Check out their performances and… More »

The Lonely Island – “We’re Back” Video & Turtleneck & Chain Info

The Lonely Island are back with (drumroll) "We're Back," the first taste of their forthcoming second album Turtleneck & Chain. The SNL trio's 2009 Incredibad boasted guest spots from T-Pain, Norah Jones, and Julian Casablancas. This time they've got Akon, Justin Timberlake, Nicki Minaj, and Rihanna. Does that mean this album will include "I Just… More »

The Strokes Hit SNL

I have rarely looked forward to Gabe Videogum's SNL recap with more anticipation than this week's because what the hell was that last night? I mean aside from having a script that with sketches both pitched and punched up by Miley Cyrus's publicist, it is very cool how SNL gave Miley a chance to show… More »

Saturday Night Live: With Host Paul McCartney & Comedic Guest Paul Rudd!

It sorta felt like Macca's show, anyway. In addition to performing four songs, McCartney appeared in the opening monologue, the Digital Short, Weekend Update, and etc. “Fair enough. Dude was a Beatle."… More »

Florence & The Machine Visit SNL Where Horses Play Baseball

Florence Welsh brought her breakout single "Dog Days Are Over" and her cover of The Source's "You've Got The Love" to Saturday Night Live this weekend. The microphone in her hands could have been a prop -- her voice is huge. "Dog Days Are Over" is the second single from Lungs, but it didn't get… More »

Arcade Fire Return To SNL

It's late Saturday night, so can we group liveblog this? The ScarJo/Arcade Fire combo bodes well. I'm told we should expect "We Used To Wait" and "Sprawl II." Don't hold me to that, "wait for it..."… More »

Kanye Updates “Power” For SNL, Drops “Denim Flow”

Having promised to cancel G.O.O.D. Friday after a hacker (?) leaked the apparently unfinished Bon Iver-sampling "Lost In The World," this morning Yeezy forgave the Internet and tweeted a new song anyway. Thanks Kanye! I'll toast to your non-douchiness. More »

UPDATE: And the winner is... Ron Artest. Tyler Coffin. Congrats Tyler! Thanks everyone who participated. // We've already established that Kristen Wiig is a champion. Now Stereogum has teamed up with MacGruber to host a remix contest of Kristen's (as Vicki St. Elmo) "Champion" (originally written by Nate Heller out of Leilo… More »

MGMT Play SNL

MGMT played a pretty rough episode of Saturday Night Live this weekend. Host Gabourey Sidibe stumbled over a lot of her lines, though she at least understood what humor was, what she was saying, etc. (making January Jones still the worst host in recent memory). MGMT did "Flash Delirium" and "Brian Eno," and while… More »

Pearl Jam Did Saturday Night Live

The band delivered a pair of songs during SNL's worst show of the season, which at least makes karmic sense since last week's Galifianakis night was the very best (feat. Ezra Koenig). Watch Pearl jam here, free of Jude Law's reminders that he starred in Hamlet on the old Broadway you're welcome. More »

Vampire Weekend Return To SNL

Verily, SNL's talent bookers nailed the zeitgeist this weekend. Where last time through just the very sight of Ezra, Rostam, and the Chrisses proved a highlight of a dismal show, this night they were the icing on an already must-watch episode that everyone involved with the show said was "what the show was all… More »

Watch SNL‘s Smash Mouth Sketch, “We Are The World 25″ Parody

Jennifer Lopez hosted and performed even though she doesn't have an album or movie out anytime soon. She was the best part of a "We Are The World" parody, and a small part of the best-in-show Smash Mouth sketch. Watch at Videogum. (And compare Bill Hader's Eddie Vedder to Adam Sandler'sMore »

Them Crooked Vultures, Crisis Of Conformity Play SNL

The supergroup's performance was overshadowed by Crisis Of Conformity, Fred Armisen and Dave Grohl's pitch-perfect hardcore punk spoof. Plus John Paul Jones had the line of the night in an unaired sketch (with ?uesto) about farts. Watch and learn. More »

The 12 Best Late Night TV Performances Of 2009

It was a tumultuous year for late night laffs, with Jimmy Fallon joining the fray, Conan taking over Tonight only to find awful Leno sink the NBC ship at 10PM, and Letterman enjoying career-high ratings despite (or because of?) a sex scandal. It was, however, a solid year for late night music booking. We… More »

Julian Casablancas Covers “I Wish It Was Christmas Today”

A big part of what made Saturday Night Live's recurring yuletide classic "I Wish It Was Christmas Today" so perfect were the sight gags: Tracy Morgan's dead-eyed dance, Chris Kattan's head shake, even Jimmy Fallon's inability to keep a straight face through triggering the Casio presets. Horatio Sanz's blissfully silly vocal was just the ornament. More »

Julian Casablancas Plans Awesome Christmas Single

The solo Stroke (who surprised Spaceland last night) has covered SNL's yuletide earworm "I Wish It Was Christmas Today," original performed by Horatio Sanz, Jimmy Fallon, Chris Kattan, and Tracy Morgan. Download/7" is out 12/21 (via NME). More »
