An all-star video was made to celebrate the milestone, featuring also cameos by Jon Hamm, Michael Bolton, Will Ferrell and Usher.
Will Ferrell's return as the host of "Saturday Night Live" was highly-praised but the star of the night was the star-studded 100th digital short. Andy Samberg and his The Lonely Island bandmate Jorma Taccone were joined by Justin Bieber instead of Akiva Schaffer in a video of musical meets rap meets pop meets R&B.
The all-star video was made to commemorate the 100th edition of the mini video music series. Thus, there were memorable performers such as Samberg's Shy Ronnie, Justin Timberlake, Kenan Thompson's Reba McEntire and Fred Armisen's Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Timberlake, who famously sang "Dick in a Box" with Samberg, said that they are ready to take 'them' out of the boxes this time.
The performances were topped-off with cameos from Natalie Portman, Jon Hamm, Michael Bolton, show's producer Lorne Michaels, the night's host Ferrell and musical guest Usher. Portman angrily rapped about how she's still crazy despite having baby, Hamm went shirtless as saxophonist Sergio and Bolton dressed as a singing Jack Sparrow.
