This year’s last episode of Saturday Night Live was hosted by Jimmy Fallon and the musical guest was no one else but Justin Timberlake.
SNL’s Christmas episode was packed with surprises. In the first 35 minutes, the show featured unannounced visits by Paul McCartney, Madonna and Barry Gibb.
McCartney surprised viewers by joining Fallon on stage and turning the monologue into a duet featuring the popular Christmas carol "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas."
Everyone naturally rejoiced on Twitter.

And then just a few sketches later, Maddona made a guest appearance during ‘The Barry Gibb’ sketch.
Here’s Fallon and Timberlake interviewing Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly [Cecily Strong], Paul Ryan [Taran Killam] and Madonna!
Madonna even Instagrammed from behind-the-scenes:
This episode was epic and it is definitely one of the best shows SNL has delivered in several seasons.
