The latest episode of Saturday Night Live was quite a memorable one. Hosted by Maya Rudolph, the viewer witnessed Justin Timberlake performing a parody of Bon Iver’s “Holocene.” JT impersonated the Wisconsin band’s frontman Justin Vernon as part of a sketch about Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter. Vernon has given his approval to this skit through Twitter:
“Holy s**t, i was just watching SNL and JT did a Bon Iver hilarious thing!”
“Also, Maya Rudolph saying ‘bon iver’ is enough. I can die now!!!”
“JT! SNL peeps… that was hilarious. Armisen as prince… Also, i WISH i looked that good bald. That was it… the most surreal thing! ever!”
Sleigh Bells took over the musical responsibilities of the night. Watch it here.
