Watch Justin Timberlake Host a Star-Studded SNL

Still from Hulu.

Justin Timberlake made his much-anticipated return as both host and musical guest for last night’s Saturday Night Live, and the crew seemed determined not to disappoint. The episode included not just JT signatures like the Dick-in-a-Box guys, but older standbys like the Three Amigos and the Two Wild & Crazy Guys.

Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, and Martin Short all returned for the latter two appearances, joining other SNL regulars like Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, Paul Simon, and—for something relatively fresh—Stefon.

Update, March 10, 2013: If you missed the reference, here's the original Five Timers Club skit:


Timberlake also performed lead singles “Mirrors” and “Suit & Tie,” using roughly the same setup he had at the Grammys (including a Jay-Z verse on “Suit & Tie”). You can watch both performances below.
