Prince & Bon Iver visit Blue Ivy Carter on Saturday Night Live
|Justin "Vernon" Timberlake.|
This skit is not half bad. Vernon's slightly dour demeanor from Grammys night plays big here -- and fortunately there were no jokes about how to pronounce his name.
There was this one, though:
"Sorry I'm late. I was just wandering barefoot in the woods of Wisconsin," he said. "Fashioned this guitar out of a canoe, and I wrote a song for your baby."And what follows is a mush-mouthed falsetto performance that confuses our host and hostess, but excites their "white butler."
"But Bon Iver, we were just about to put our baby to sleep," Beyonce (Maya Rudolph) responds.
His retort: "Trust me, this'll help."
