Earlier this week we saw promo videos released by Saturday Night Live that promoted guest host Jesse Eisenberg on last night’s ep of SNL. At the time, it occurred to me that Jesse might have a guest star pop up on the show to lend him a hand. I was certain that Justin Timberlake would be the one to make a cameo but it occurred to me that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg might be cool enough to show up. It turns that he was, Zuckerberg came out during the opening monologue much to everyone’s surprise.
In all honesty, the monologue gag about the 3 Zuckerbergs could’ve been a lot funnier but the fact that the real Mark Zuckerberg decided to make a cameo on the show was really freakin’ cool, IMHO. Here is video of last night’s SNL opening:
I mean, yeah, could’ve been better but still … amazing. Musical guest Nicki Minaj was also pretty amazing on the show. For her first performance of her song Right Thru Me, Nicki wore a Christian Siriano dress from his Spring/Summer 2011 collection:
Her second performance was for her song Moment 4 Life:
But, IMHO, her best performance last night was in the Digital Short for the music video Do The Creep:
BUT … Nicki guested in another skit called The Bride of Blackenstein:
She damn near got more screentime than host Jesse Eisenberg did. To be honest, last night’s ep of SNL was really good. There were a lot of surprises and the skits were fairly funny. It was the best ep of SNL in a long time, don’tcha think? Did you watch last night? Did you enjoy the show?
