SNL Music Recap: Anna Kendrick Covers Iggy Azalea As The Little Mermaid, Icona Pop Sing About Dongs, And You’ll Never Guess What Pharrell Wears On His Head

Anna Kendrick is a triple threat — she sings and acts and does that thing with cups — so she was a natural in her first time hosting Saturday Night Live.

Bonnaroo Lineup 2014

Like last year, Bonnaroo is announcing the bulk of its fest lineup via a 30-minute B.L.A.M. (Bonnaroo Line-Up Announcement Megathon) webcast. The 2014 reveal is hosted by comedians Hannibal Buress and Taran Killam and features a super jam with the Flaming Lips, Ben Folds, and special guests (I’m guessing Foxygen based on this Instagram).

If that sounds excessive to you, just wait a moment, because the day of the reveal may actually deserve that announcement of its own.

Watch Drake Host SNL

The Degrassi alum and Raptors global ambassador played on his black and Jewish heritage in a Bar Mitzvah-themed monologue; did fine impressions of A-Rod, Katt Williams, Jay Z, and Lil Wayne (as Steve Urkel!); and performed a couple of song… More »

Watch SNL‘s Kim & Kanye Talk Show, The Worst Cover Songs Of All Time, And Lady Gaga & R. Kelly Performance

Tonight’s Saturday Night Live gave us Waking Up With Kimye, a talk show in which Jay Pharaoh and Nasim Pedrad reprised their familiar impressions of shouty Kanye West and whiny Kim Kardashian. Pharoah’s West (which we last saw in his “I Am A Dog” parody) is pretty strong and included some “Black Skinhead”-y yelps to… More »
