'SNL': Zooey Deschanel Parodies 'The Artist', Show Pays Tribute to Whitney Houston


Jean Dujardin and Nicolas Cage make appearance in the episode hosted by the 'New Girl' leading lady, while the late singer is honored with a still of her 1996 appearance on the variety show.

Zooey Deschanel brought her "adorkable" "New Girl" persona to "Saturday Night Live" on February 11. Hosting the latest episode of the variety show, she sang a song about a guy who forgets Valentine's Day while playing an ukulele in the monologue.

The "500 Days of Summer" actress later showed her dancing skill in a sketch titled "Les Jeunes de Paris" that parodies "The Artist". Helping her to spoof the Golden Globes-winning movie was none other than the film's lead actor, Jean Dujardin.

In addition to Dujardin, Nicolas Cage made a surprise appearance in "Weekend Update" alongside Andy Samberg. The show's regular, who wore a prosthetic forehead, claimed himself to be real Cage and said the "Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance" actor was his cloned twin.

In the wake of Whitney Houston's death which was announced just hours before "SNL" aired, the NBC show also paid a silent tribute to the six-time Grammy Award winner by showing a picture of the late singer's 1996 appearance in a sketch of the show alongside Molly Shannon. Meanwhile, Karmin took the stage to perform "Brokenhearted" and "I Told You So".
