Lorde Jack Antonoff Saturday Night Live

Lorde came over all Miss Havisham in her performance for her latest song 'Liability' on 'Saturday Night Live'. The singer is promoting her forthcoming second album 'Melodrama', which is set for release this summer, and gave two live performances on TV over the weekend.

LordeLorde performs 'Liability' on Saturday Night Live

During her performance, she sat back to back with her collaborator Jack Antonoff who was on piano, and she was dressed in a loose white ensemble of a shirt and pants with a ragged looking veil pulled up over her head. She reminded one of the jilted bride Miss Havisham from Charles Dickens' 'Great Expectations' as she grimaced her way through the lyrics about eternal loneliness.

Scarlett Johansson Plays Ivanka Trump In 'Complicit' Saturday Night Live Sketch


Saturday Night Live Scarlett Johansson Ivanka Trump

As much as there are people out there who want to render Donald Trump's wife and daughters as blameless in his unpopular regime, 'Saturday Night Live' have attacked Ivanka Trump with a sketch by Scarlett Johansson alleging that she is 'complicit' in his actions. 

Scarlett JohanssonScarlett Johansson does her best Ivanka Trump impression on SNL

Ivanka Trump has managed to avoid hitting headlines too much since her scorned father was elected President of the United States, save for that one airplace debacle back in December. Of course, her sister Tiffany managed to create a stir at New York Fashion Week, but Ivanka herself has rather stayed out of the spotlight.

Alec Baldwin Might Not Be Doing His Donald Trump Impressions On 'SNL' For Much Longer


Alec Baldwin Donald Trump Saturday Night Live

Alec Baldwin’s impersonations of Donald Trump on ‘SNL’ have hit the nail so precisely on the head that the new president himself has even criticised them on numerous occasions. However, the actor has hinted that he won’t be doing them for that much longer.

Baldwin’s impressions, along with those of Melissa McCarthy ripping it out of press secretary Sean Spicer, have coincided with a ratings boost for ‘Saturday Night Live’.

However, the 58 year old Hollywood star intimated to Extra in an interview on Monday (March 6th) that he’s strongly considering packing in his lampoons of the rage-tweeter-in-chief soon.

Melissa McCarthy Absolutely Nails Sean Spicer On 'Saturday Night Live'


Melissa McCarthy Saturday Night Live

Melissa McCarthy is the reigning Queen of the Internet after her spot-on impression of White House press secretary Sean Spicer on 'Saturday Night Live' last week. The crazy gum-chewing, aggressive shouting and extremely convincing wig have earned the comedienne over 10.5 million views online.

Melissa McCarthyMelissa McCarthy's impersonation of Sean Spicer is the best thing about SNL

She's best known for starring in the likes of 'Mike and Molly', 'Gilmore Girls' and 'Ghostbusters' but Melissa McCarthy truly outdid herself with her impersonation of Donald Trump's press aide Sean Spicer, who has been frequently mocked by the media ever since he made outrageously false claims about attendance at Trump's presidential inauguation in Washington D.C..

'Saturday Night Live' Suspends Writer Katie Rich For Mocking Barron Trump On Twitter


Saturday Night Live Donald Trump

Saturday Night Live’ has suspended one of its writers, Katie Rich, after she tweeted about the new president Donald Trump’s 10 year old son Barron, predicting he will be “this country’s first homeschool shooter”.

Rich, who was hired by NBC’s long-running satirical sketch show at the end of 2013, is believed to have suspended from her post indefinitely, in a decision the programme made shortly after the post she shared on Friday (January 20th), the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration, received a barrage of criticism.

Although she quickly deleted the post and subsequently hid all her social media accounts from public view, her name did not appear in the credits of last weekend’s edition of ‘SNL’.

'Saturday Night Live' Sees Putin Calling Out Donald Trump On Inauguration Crowd Control


Saturday Night Live Donald Trump

'Saturday Night Live' took the opportunity to tear into new president Donald Trump following his official inauguration last week. It wasn't Alec Baldwin doing an impression of the politician that marked the highlight of the show this time, however, but Beck Bennett as Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Donald TrumpDonald Trump called out on 'SNL'

The comedian played a sexy, topless Putin trying to assure Americans that everything was going to be fine under Trump's leadership especially as he had now 'bought' America. He addressed Donald Trump as a 'friend', ribbing him about the inauguration and mocking his vastly over-exaggerated claim that over 1 million people showed up to the event.

Donald Trump Alec Baldwin Saturday Night Live

Donald Trump confronted Alec Baldwin online about the comedian's portrayal of him on 'Saturday Night Live', after he returned to the second show since the election. Naturally, Baldwin clapped back with the most cutting response ever. We doubt 'SNL' are even going to try and go easy on him now.

Donald TrumpDonald Trump requests 'equal time' from SNL

The president-elect confessed that he saw 'Saturday Night Live' at the weekend, and blasted it for the 'biased' skits. He then had the nerve to request 'equal time', which means that broadcasters must present political candidates equal opportunities if they so request it. A fair request were the election not over.
