‘SNL’ recap: Highlights with host Adam Levine
Adam Levine hosted SNL last night with musical guest Kendrick Lamar. Missed the show? Check out these highlights!
Adam Levine hosted Saturday Night Live as another musician-turned-actor, but he more than proved that he can hold his own as an actor as well as a comedian. Levine appeared in a wide range of sketches that showcased his many talents.
Though Andy Samberg left SNL after last season, The Lonely Island did return this week, and what a return it was. The group’s new song “YOLO” reminded us how much SNL misses Samberg and his work with the digital shorts. Samberg also appeared in the monologue as a coach for host Levine alongside Cameron Diaz and Jerry Seinfeld.
Kendrick Lamar was the musical guest and performed “Swimming Pools (Drank)” and “Poetic Justice,” two of the singles off of his album released in October, Good Kid, M.A.A.D City.
