Justin Bieber was the musical guest on the April 10 episode of “Saturday Night Live,” but he did not just perform his two songs and call it night. He appeared in host Tina Fey’s opening monologue and in a Hot for Teacher sketch that was funny (and only a little creepy, so good for them).
What was missing from his first appearance on “SNL?” A digital short. The Andy Samberg-Justin Timberlake digital shorts “D*** in a Box” and “Motherlover” can stand up with any classic “SNL” music sketches, even old-school hilarity like Nick the Lounge Singer, Buckwheat, the Sweeney Sisters and Opera Man.
We’d like to propose that Justin Bieber be invited back to “SNL” next season with Timberlake as the host (because let’s face it, Timberlake is almost more actor than singer nowadays) and they record a third track to accompany “Box” and “Motherlover.”
Bieber has demonstrated his willingness to be funny and inappropriate. He was hot for Tina Fey on “SNL,” he took over Funny or Die on April Fools’ 2010 and he did not object to a “reenactment” of him shooting Aziz Ansari and stealing “Baby” from him (below).
What do you guys think? Is a Justin and Justin “Saturday Night Live” a good idea? Or the best idea ever?
