Justin Timberlake Impersonates Bon Iver On SNL

I’ve gotta admit it, most of the time I don’t find SNL that funny. I mean sure, occasionally there’s a little chuckle, but not actual belly laughs. At least not until I saw Justin Timberlake impersonating Bon Iver welcoming Beyonce and Jay-Z’s new child into the world.

After Prince, L.L. Cool J., Nicki Minaj, Brad and Angelina and Taylor Swift pay their respects to the little baby Justin Timberlake a.k.a. Bon Iver appears on the scene to sing the song. When “Beyonce” says they were “just about to put the baby to sleep,” Timerlake-Iver says “Trust me, this will help.”

Actually come to think of it, all of the impersonations are ingenious.

You know what? Just watch it for yourself:

If you’re worried about Bon Iver’s feelings being hurt, he tweeted: “JT! SNL peeps… that was hilarious. Armisen as prince… Also, I WISH I looked that good bald. That was it… the most surreal thing! ever!”

If you’re a Bon Iver fan, remember he’s heading to Australia next month. Check him out at:
