Last night the often uneven “Saturday Night Live” gave us one of their best episodes in a long time and a skit that may rank among this decade’s best. (If you’re unable to see clips from the NBC-run Hulu.com you can take your chances with this YouTube version.)
Are we saying this because it was about the blessed baby Blue Ivy?
No. But because it included Jay Pharoah’s spot-on Jigga impersonation, host Maya Rudolph’s wonderful Beyonce, Brangelina’s tingling “baby sense,” a spastic Nicki Minaj clone, “White Butler,” and Justin Timberlake as a sleepy Bon Iver.
The only thing missing? A
perfectly reasonable crazy Blue Ivy Illuminati theory.
