A video clip of a failed SNL sketch featuring Justin Bieber was posted by NBC to give fans an inside look at the skit, which didn’t make it to the final broadcast. In the clip, titled “Songs For Daddy,” the pop star plays a supporting role to Bill Hader, whose country singer caricature never quite connects with the audience.
Filmed during Bieber’s SNL hosting stint in February, it’s pretty obvious why the unfunny sketch was left out of the live broadcast, with Hader and fellow writers calling it “the greatest train wreck ever.” An unexpected moment arrives by way of a wall from the set almost collapsing on the “Beauty And A Beat” crooner. Bieber looks irritated and quickly breaks character, exclaiming, “That’s not part of it!”
