Proving once again that she is both adorable and multi-talented, Anna Kendrick showed off her amazing acting and vocal skills while hosting the April 5 episode of ‘Saturday Night Live.’
Anna Kendrick is an Oscar and Tony award nominated actress, and we can see why! The 28-year-old brought her amazing vocals and plenty of laughs to when she hosted SNL on April 5 with musical guest, Pharrell Williams. Anna could not have been more adorable and upbeat throughout the entire episode– we loved it. See for yourself and check out her top 5 best moments!
Anna Kendrick’s Best Hosting Moments
5. From Anna’s opening monologue we could tell that this episode of SNL would have plenty of great musical numbers and we were right! The gorgeous actress showed off her pipes singing to the tune of Beauty and the Beast‘s “Belle.” The whole cast took part — even Lorne Michaels — who was hilariously on his phone and could not be bothered with Anna who was singing right in his ear!
4. In another great skit, Anna and Vanessa Bayer play two fraternal twins who audition to be the backup singer for musical guest Pharrell — who was of course wearing his now famous hat. While the two twins may have looked similar, their vocal talents could not have been more different, with Anna of course having the stronger voice out of the two. Pharrell was joined in the casting process by Kenan Thompson and Taran Killam who were of course also wearing clones of Pharrell’s hat.
3.This season, the women of SNL are really bringing it, and the new comedic song ” Dongs All Over The World” reminded us of some of the classic Andy Samberg skits from a few years ago. The ladies play ”nasty” girls who are singing on a plane about doing every ”dong” in the world. Anna even raps! Check it out below!
2.In another hilarious skit, Les Jeunes De Paris, Anna and Taran steal the show with some grade A choreography! The best moment is when there is a reference to Anna’s hit song, ”Cups.” Watch below to see what happens!
1.The best skit of the night hands down was when Anna played a modern-day Ariel from The Little Mermaid. Instead of singing the classic ”Part Of Your World” ballad to trade her amazing voice for legs, Anna brings out some hits from Britney Spears, Kesha and Selena Gomez instead — much to the dismay of Ursela, played by the amazing Aidy Bryant , who is now having second thoughts about wanting Anna’s voice.
