The Black Eyes Peas Boom Boom Pummel Kathie Lee On ‘SNL’

Nov 16th, 2009 // 2 Comments

The Black Eyed Peas hit up Saturday Night Live this past weekend, and also hit (and bludgeoned and pounced on repeatedly) Kathie Lee Gifford. The big letdown was that a.) it was just a SNL skit mocking the Today Show, and not some spontaneous act of rage brought about by rogue, anti-Kathie Lee BEP members, and b.) it wasn’t even the real Kathie Lee, but rather Kristen Wiig’s boozy take on her.

Catch the clip below, wherein Jenny Slate takes on spoofing Gifford’s co-host Hoda Kotb. Also included is the Peas’ SNL performance of “I Gotta Feeling”—you know, in case you hadn’t heard the song enough from the 14 weeks it spent at #1 over the entire summer.

The Peas also knocked Leona Lewis for a bit of a loop this weekend. “Meet Me Halfway” climbed to the top of the U.K. singles chart yesterday, keeping Lewis’ new song “Happy” held back at #2.

    When’s some enterprising queen gonna swizzle up Kathie Lee’s “Heart of a Woman” album to top the Hot Dance Club Play charts?! “If Kathie Lee Calls…”

    Robbie! Jeezus! “booze-induced” means “directly caused/produced by booze.” Are you saying Kristen Wiig’s Kathie Lee impression was directly caused/produced by booze? So Kristen Wiig is the one who drinks, rather than Kathie Lee? Learn to write.
