Oh my god, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s opening monologue for ‘Saturday Night Live’s’ Christmas show on Dec. 19 was everything we dreamed of! The sassy comedy superduo took on two types of Christmas carols, and we’re still cracking up. We have the details, here!
Our comedy heroes Tina Fey, 45, and Amy Poehler, 44, took over Saturday Night Live on Dec. 19, and we still can’t get over their magnificent opening monologue! The perfect pair took on Christmas carols and created the best mash-up EVER. Here’s what went down!
Hot off the opening of their amazing new movie Sisters, Tina and Amy stopped by SNL to show off their baller hosting skills, and of course it was next level. The pair kicked off the annual Christmas show with an epic opening monologue with some Christmas carols, and gave them a hysterical spin!
Tina and Amy kicked off the night talking about how they’re best friends despite some major personality differences. To illustrate their point, they belted out their favorite types of holiday music! Amy described hers as “fun” and sang an upbeat creation that reminded us of “Santa Baby.” Meanwhile, Tina sang a deep, slow, hymn-like song about Jesus being born with lots of historical references. But the best part is when the two did a mash-up of their songs, which became an upbeat religious jam with lyrics like “merry Christmas baby, the virgin Mary was a special lady. Yeah, it was as awesome as it sounds.
It’s no surprise that the pair completely nailed it, because they always do! Before the show, they told USA Today why the Christmas show is always so fantastic, “It’s because the cast is getting ready for a three-week break and they’re going to party hard that night at the party. And also there’s a lot of their family and friends in the audience. That makes for a good show.” Heck yeah it did! Okay, now we’ve gotta go watch Sisters again. And again. And again…
