Gwyneth and Cee Lo!
Tonight brings Gwyneth Paltrow back to studio 8H for her third hosting gig, but her first time in 10 years. I think little Miss Paltrow owes a huge debt of gratitude to Ryan Murphy for putting her in Glee and therefore back on the cultural radar, she returns to the Holly Holiday role for two more likely may sweeps episodes.
Cee Lo Green, who’s recent album Ladykiller was my favorite album of 2010, musical guests for the first time solo; part of Gnarls Barkley he performed on the SNL stage in 2008 with Ashton Kutcher as host. (In that episode, the last sketch of the night featured Casey Wilson as Dusty the Paraplegic stripper in one of the funniest sketches I’ve ever seen.)
Expect Gwyneth and Green to perform the watered down version of Fuck You together and my bet is that Gwyneth sings more than once.
Check out the SNL promos.
and Gwyneth on Glee.
and Cee Lo’s new single, which will probably be song #2, It’s Ok.
Do you think Gwyneth will do a good job or will she join the ranks of talented recent hosts who couldn’t make it work?
On another note how great was Jim Carrey last week? He gave it 110% – the Black Swan sketch alone was worth the price of admission.
This oddball sketch from the end of the night was also damn funny.
