Plus, Kimye gets goofed on and Samberg busts out a new jam
“Saturday Night Live” finished up its season with former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Andy Samberg returning to the stage to host. Check out the highlights below.
During his monologue, host and “Saturday Night Live” vet Samberg attempted to break Bill Hader’s record for impressions. Aided by fellow “SNL” refugee Seth Meyers, Samberg tore through a list that included Paul Giamatti, a young John Travolta and Jim Carrey. Unfortunately, Hader rushed to the stage to reclaim his crown with multiple impressions — including of Samberg himself.
“SNL” alum Fred Armisen, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Bill Hader pitched in for a skit about a family whose overly affectionate ways don’t stop them from being put off by Michael Sam’s NFL buss with his boyfriend. Clearly, the family that kisses together, disses together.

The show started off with a cold open that spoofed the scandal of the week — Jay Z’s elevator blow-out with his sister-in-law Solange. Jay Z and Solange attempted to do some damage control with an audio-enhanced version of the infamous video that explained the alleged altercation was all due to an errant spider.
Another famous couple, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, was satirized with a skit featuring the couple hosting a talk show, during which Kimye discuss their upcoming nuptials.
Samberg took the opportunity to bust out a new Lonely Island track, “Hugs,” about a serial hugger who lays his warm embrace on every lady he can get his hands on, then drops ‘em like a hot potato. (Samberg got a little help on the track from Pharrell Williams.)
