Justin Timberlake Stresses Out over "Suit & Tie" in New "SNL" Promos
10:07PM Friday March 8, 2013
Justin Timberlake returns to Saturday Night Live this weekend as both the host and musical guest, his fifth time hosting the show. In a new series of promos, Justin goofs around with cast member Kenan Thompson, pokes fun at his image as an all-around entertainer, and pretends to freak out about his outfit.
In one promo, after Justin announces that he's going to be the host and the musical guest, Kenan jokes, "What are you, also gonna run the cameras, too?" We then see Justin appear behind the camera, saying, "Yes, Kenan. I am." Another Justin appears, holding a boom mike, saying "I also do sound." "That's freaky," replies Kenan. "Yes it is," says Justin. Then, a third Justin appears, touching up Kenan's makeup with a brush. "Hold still, you're a little shiny," he says.
In another promo, after Justin announces that he's going to both host and sing, Kenan jokes, "I'll bet you brought your 'Suit and Tie.'" "No, I didn't," says Justin, looking disturbed. "I mean like from your song," says Kenan. "I can't believe I forgot my suit and tie!" says an agitated Justin. "It's a joke!" insists Kenan. "I can't believe I forgot my suit and tie, how could I be so stupid?" yells Justin.
Kenan tries to calm JT down, saying, "We gotta lot of good costume people, man, I'm sure we can get you a suit!" "Not my suit!" bellows Justin. "Not my tie! Stupid, stupid, stupid!" Then he storms off, leaving Kenan alone and confused.
Justin's appearance is timed to hype the release of his new album The 20/20 Experience, which is out March 19.
