So it was interesting to see how the largely musical spots would translate to the Emmy broadcast when Lonely Island boys Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone took the stage for a medley of some of their most familiar tunes.
Joined by Michael Bolton, Ed Helms, Maya Rudolph, Akon and John Stamos, the trio sang some of their recent greats — “I Just Had Sex,” “Jack Sparrow” and “3-Way” — while the audience seemed less than responsive.
Highlight? William H. Macy getting molested, before breaking into a surprising chorus of “U.S.A.” and waving little American flags.
What did you think?
