When Justin Timberlake was announced as the host for the season finale of ‘Saturday Night Live’ (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC), we suspected there was a chance for a recurrence of the characters he and Andy Samberg made famous across two ‘Digital Shorts.’
What we didn’t expect was that not only would they be joined by their recent lovers from the ‘Motherlover’ short, Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson, but that musical guest Lady Gaga would join them in the song and the gag.
The new premise finds our favorite out-of-fashion mack daddies leaving their motherlovers behind to foray into the next frontier in lovemaking. “3-Way (The Golden Rule)” followed they boys on a sexual adventure with Gaga and one another — It’s okay, because it’s not gay when it’s a three-way.
What did you think of Timberlake and Gaga? Timberlake was hilarious as expected, but we were impressed by how involved Gaga got with several of the sketches. Could Timberlake have found his ‘SNL’-hosting female counterpart? We definitely nominate her for next season.
