Watch: ‘Saturday Night Live’ Spoofs Beyoncé, Jay-Z And Blue Ivy


Trent brought it up in Les News yesterday, on Saturday’s episode of Saturday Night Live there was a hilarious spoof of Beyonce and Jay-Z. If you didn’t catch it, we have the SNL video here for you. Maya Rudolph plays Beyonce, Jay Pharoah is Jay-Z, and they’re at home with baby Blue Ivy as they welcome their celebrity guests who have come to meet the new princess… Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Prince, and LL Cool J all enter the B-Jay home for a guest appearance. There is also a very funny cameo from Justin Timberlake as Bon Iver. Too funny! Check it out below…

In typical SNL style, this is a hilarious sketch. I think Maya does a brilliant job impersonating Beyonce. She even looks a bit like Bey…well, maybe it is just the voluminous hair and the hilarious body movement. When I saw this sketch one of my first thoughts was what would Beyonce and Jay-Z think (and all the others celebs that are mocked here too). In my opinion, this spoof is just so funny, but harmless and hopefully it was taken with a grain of salt and in the right mind frame. I don’t think anything malicious was intended. I think Beyonce and Jay-Z probably loved it more than we did.

Check it out below…

Who do you think gets the harshest critique in this spoof and do you think anyone would be offended?

    Jay Pharoah does a great Jay-Z!!

    I LOVE Maya Rudolph. She was great as Beyonce and Justin Timberlake as Bon Iver was hilarious. That whole SNL(Well most of it) was awesome. Amy Poehler(sp)and Justin Timberlake were great. I loved the skit where Kristen Wiig and Maya completely cracked up in the middle. I always laugh when other people crack themselves up. It’s fun to see actors be themselves and have fun with what they’re doing.

      she is under-rated…and needs to blow up more.

    It’s been a looong while since I actually laughed at an SNL skit. This got more than one. The Nicki Minaj was SPOT ON..I died right here. The Taylor Swift was also subtle but freaking hilarious. I thought I was the only one who picked up on her perpetual silent surprise. hahahaha!

    I thought the Bronx Beat skit with Rudolph and Poehler was the funniest out of them all. I was laughing so loud that I think the people in the room next to my probably thought I was crazy. I wasn’t able to see the show when it aired as I was on a plane headed to California. I tend to miss a lot of shows and then hear about how funny they were from my friends. I was able to catch SNL on DISH Online as soon as I got to my hotel, and it was just as good as my friends said. I like using DISH Online while I am away since I travel so much. Being able to watch many of the same shows that I can watch on TV is very convenient. Whether I am at DISH working or in another state, I am glad that I can watch almost when and where I like! I hope they keep the show just as hilarious.
