Jimmy Fallon Makes It Political & Musical On Saturday Night Live

Jimmy Fallon got political and musical in his latest stint hosting Saturday Night Live. The results were mixed. While his opening monologue, which was actually just a Broadway-caliber production of David Bowie's "Let's Dance," and the cold open sketch where he played Jared Kushner were home runs, others (we're looking at the return of Sully and Denise) fell flat.
Harry Styles took to the stage for more than his expected musical performances, joining in on a few skits and proving he's got comedy chops. That Mick Jagger impression was priceless.

Melissa McCarthy made a comeback, ahead of her hosting gig in May, to play Sean Spicer playing the Easter Bunny, in a sketch that would have been funny if it weren't so full of horrible things that actually happened.
Then there is that Legally Blonde Musical sketch, wherein the ladies of SNL once again nail the digital short.

Let's Dance Monologue

In a very Fallon move, Jimmy opts to skip the usual opener for a song, saying, "Tonight is bigger than a show. It's a party." Music aficionados will note that Nile Rogers, who wrote this song with David Bowie, joins Fallon on stage.

Easter Message from Sean Spicer

Please let the White House dress Spicer up as the Easter Bunny for the egg roll. That would be magic.

The nosebleeds. The choreography. The solos. Oh my god you guys. It's the first Kansas Middle School production of Legally Blonde: The Musical.

Back to hell, President Bannon. We hardly knew you, or we knew you too well. This whole Jared Kushner is the Amelie of the Administration thing is going to stick, isn't it?
