Justin Timberlake Does What He Does (Second) Best On “Saturday Night Live”

When “SNL” was done cracking jokes about prison rape, this weekend’s season finale was the highest rated in seven years, thanks, mostly, to the star power of host Justin Timberlake and musical guest Lady Gaga. Listen, I want Justin to give up his acting aspirations and record a new album as much as anyone, but maybe he could get his acting fix by becoming a semi-regular cast member on “SNL”? He’s so good at it! Above, the hi-larious digital short featuring Justin and Andy Samberg’s “Dick in a Box” crooners singing about “3-Way (The Golden Rule),” in which a threesome with two guys “is not gay” so long as there’s a chick (a chola-licious Lady Gaga) in the middle. After the jump, two of my other favorite moments…

As this was the first time JT was hosting but not performing as the musical guest, he sang about not singing in one of the tightest opening monologues I’ve ever seen on the show. Genius.

And, of course, no JT “SNL” hosting gig would be complete without his rapping store mascot who, this time, wanted you to “bring it on down to Liquorville!” Look for Lady Gaga to make an appearance as a wine cork.
