Adam Levine’s SNL Monologue Parodies The Voice With Slew Of Celebrity Cameos
Serially unfunny and un-self-aware Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine hosted Saturday Night Live, and his opening monologue was surprisingly hilarious.
The sketch parodied NBC’s vocal competition show The Voice, of which Levine is a judge, by having famous comedians show up in those big red spinny chairs and judge Levine’s comedy themselves… trying to get him to join their “team” for coaching his hosting gig. Former SNLer Andy Samberg showed up as the first “coach,” ripping himself as having starred in hundreds of Digital Shorts while only appearing in three actual live sketches. He also mocked Levine’s nasaly singing voice… but then Cameron Diaz showed up as an opposing judge.
“You have to be willing to take a handful of Ben Stiller‘s splooge and shove it up in your hair,” Diaz explained of the certain drive required of SNL hosts. She also encouraged Levine to do his trademark move, which is taking his shirt off and revealing his tattoos and muscles (to make up for his awful music, of course).
Jerry Seinfeld then showed up, telling Levine that he spent many years at NBC and knows what it takes to host SNL.
And, of course, the segment ended with Levine’s shirt off.
