Set to play Elizabeth Taylor in a new biopic, Lindsay Lohan‘s return as host of Saturday Night Live was supported by Jimmy Fallon and Jon Hamm of Mad Men also making guest appearances on the Lohan hosted ep.
Lohan opted to poke fun at herself.
The Huffington Post writes more of the girl who has starred in Air New Zealand TV commercials, is one of US tabloids favorite sobriety bracelet-wearing underdogs and who has been one of the fifteen most googled American women over the past four years.

See Justin Timberlake semi-cover Bon Iver? JT performed a parody of Holocene on SNL tonight where wrestling “the no.1 Justin of the Music World title back,” he mimicked Justin Vernon as part of his tribute sketch about Beyoncé and Jay-Z‘s new baby, Blue Ivy Carter.
Also on “parody roast” was Brad & Angelina, Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift. At the show’s close, JT returned holding a sign that said, “I Heart Bon Iver.”
One of China’s most loved American celebrities, Maya Rudolph who vowed not to revive her popular Whitney Houston impersonation ever again, hosted the Saturday Night Live episode where Sleigh Bells were special guests. The group sung Comeback Kid and End of the Line from their Reign of Terror album. The Audio Perv has footage.
So… if you missed all of that on an American Saturday, then you’re a slack and pitiful excuse of an American, if on Sunday Kiwis aross the world in New Zealand can keep up with all that. ;)
Although he can be brutally mean, I think JT has the SNL parody market cornered and Maya Rudolph, the hosting gig in the “Study. Nearly Flat” 未来的金色城堡.
Seriously though… freakin crazy Americans! I haven’t laughed so hard in two weeks!
I think JT certainly has his “no.1 Justin of music” title safely back, after this bold sketch. A nice tribute to the Knowles-Carter tribe, who I’m sure would have this clip on repeat on TiVo and be laughing the hardest. Well done!

Cyrus said “Hannah Montana” was The Disney Channel’s version of “Black Swan,” before transitioning into “I’m Sorry I’m Not Perfect,” a song referenced a few of her scandals to date.
“There’s a photo of me dressed like a dude, and Annie Leibovitz tried to get me nude. For those of you who think that’s pretty crude, I’m sorry I’m not perfect,” Cyrus belted.
“[I] didn’t make a dirty tape, and pass it along. Didn’t text a dirty picture of [my] dong,” she continued, flanked by cast members Bobby Moynihan and Kristen Wiig. “Don’t’ both of these things seem worse than a bong? I’m sorry I’m not perfect.”
‘The show’s midnight centerpiece was, predictably, “The Miley Cyrus Show,” which continued SNL’s recent tradition of having the target of their hijinks appear alongside the actor lampooning them. In this case, Vanessa Bayer, whose spot-on impersonation of the giggly, hyper-loquacious Cyrus has become a show highlight, made room on her mock talk show for Cyrus herself, who in her best impression of the night played Justin Bieber.
“Did you know I smoked salvia,” Bayer as Cyrus said to her guest.
“Well there’s no reason that you wouldn’t,” Cyrus as Bieber replied, looking straight into the camera. “Because it’s totally legal, yo!”
Cyrus also danced beside Jason Sudeikis who was playing her dad, Billy Ray while also laughing when a 3D film called “Always Say Always” was introduced to compete with Bieber’s “Never Say Never.”
In addition to playing Bieber, Lindsay Lohan and Fergie a favorite was her “Disney Channel Acting School” skit.
She quipped to budding hopefuls hoping to break in to the biz, “On the Disney Channel, every person has to be the loudest person in the room,” and, “In the Disney Channel world, any child is smarter than every adult.”
Lol. Nice one. [And... thanks MTV for writing this]. I just can’t believe that Smilers, since we met 3 years ago, is still so sweet. In 3 years, America has been through so many radical changes. Miley’s star trajectory was one of the few constants her audiences saw get larger and brighter during that period. She repeatedly entertained during some of the most difficult years America has ever known, even before her grandma was born. Do they give out medals of Bravery and stuff for that? This kid is awesome. She should get one of those awards as a real deal superstar stabilizing?/ distracting? an audience during this time frame. ;)
Love the quips on SNL.
Here’s Smilers doing the Bieber on SNL. As usual, you’re doing way too much! ;)
