Justin Timberlake’s “Bon Iver” Plays For Blue Ivy In ‘SNL’ Sketch

Feb 19th, 2012 // 2 Comments

Very, very frequent Saturday Night Live host/surprise guest Justin Timberlake popped by this weekend’s Maya Rudolph-hosted episode to send up awkward Grammy winner Justin Vernon of Bon Iver in a hilarious skit that featured cast portrayals of some of the biggest names in pop as they celebrated the birth of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s adorable little Blue Ivy Carter. (Perhaps unexpectedly to some, Rudolph did not revive her Whitney Houston impression on the evening following the superstar’s funeral). Watch the pop-packed skit below.

It’s hard to pick a favorite impression from the lot: Rudolph’s Beyonce, Jay Pharoah’s Jay-Z, Fred Armisen’s Prince, Kristen Wiig’s Taylor Swift, Keenan Thompson’s LL Cool J or Timberlake’s Justin Vernon.

Lest anyone view the Beyonce/Blue Ivy skit as a real knock against Vernon, Timberlake appeared in the closing moments of the show carrying a sign that read “I Heart Bon Iver”. Whose impression made you cackle the hardest? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter or in the comments.
