Timberlake joins Fallon in a 'Family Feud' sketch in the Christmas episode, where Paul McCartney, Madonna and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg make surprise appearances.
"Saturday Night Live" closed out 2013 with a star-studded episode. Bringing duo Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake as a host and a musical guest respectively, the show enlisted the help of Paul McCartney, Madonna and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to make the Christmas episode even merrier.
The Beatles star joined Fallon in a holiday monologue duet. Madge crashed the "Barry Gibb Talk Show" to compliment the collaboration of Fallon and Timberlake, while Mayor Bloomberg appeared in "Weekend Update" along with "SNL" regular Kate McKinnon, revealing his future plans, "I'll be enjoying a life-long dream of drinking a small soda on a non-smoking beach."
Fallon also made use of the "Weekend Update" skit to address the upcoming transition in NBC's late-night line-up. He passed the "Late Night" baton to "SNL" head writer Seth Meyers, who recently said he would still return to the show in 2014.
As expected, Timberlake teamed up with Fallon to deliver some jokes. In one skit titled "Family Feud", the "Suit and Tie" singer impersonated the "Late Night" show's host while the "SNL" alum did his best impression of "The Big Bang Theory" star Jim Parsons. Timberlake's performance caused Fallon to lose it onstage, laughing over their own jokes.
The best buddies additionally joined forces in "Wrappinville" cold open, where they appeared as goofy mascots.
After the Christmas episode aired last weekend, "SNL" is taking a holiday hiatus and will return with new episodes starting January 18. Rapper Drake has been tapped to serve as a host and a musical guest for the first edition in 2014.
