This week’s host Paul Ruddopened SNL by telling how his previous two appearances on the show were outshined by its musical guests, Beyonce and Paul McCartney.
Sooner his monologue was interrupted by the musical guests, One Direction.
Harry told him: ‘Don’t worry, Paul. We’re not here to outshine you. ’And Niall Horan added: ‘Yeah, Paul. You just do that comedy stuff and we’ll stand back here and blow kisses.’
But Paul refused to let a boyband outshine him this time, so he brought his “Man Band” onstage. And the cast members of Anchorman 2 entered. First things got a bit feisty but then everyone mutually agreed that a collaboration would be better.
And then they sang "Afternoon Delight" together.
It wouldn’t be wrong to say that this was one of the most anticipated episodes of SNL this season.
