Watch: Justin Timberlake & Jay-Z on 'Saturday Night Live'

JT hosts the show for the fifth time, does the Harlem Shake.

"There are so many exciting things about hosting five times. You get to see old friends, you get to try new things, you get to inevitably let everyone down due to overly high expectations." So began Justin Timberlake during his fifth time hosting Saturday Night Live, and let everyone down he definitely did not. He shared the stage with other five-timers Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, Chevy Chase, Candice Bergen, Martin Short and Paul Simon.

JT revisited his 'Dick in a Box' days with SNL great Andy Samberg, veganising a series of songs like 'U Can't Touch This' ("fibre, it's a dope ingredient, a thing you want to make your bowels expedient") and 'We Found Love' ("in a meatless place"). He even jumped on the 'Harlem Shake' train.

 
He closed the show with a performance of his inescapably catchy 'Suit & Tie' single, and was joined on stage by Jay-Z. In what could have been a reference to Kanye's anti-corporate rant, he changed the line "shit so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit" to "my hit's so sick, got rappers acting dramatic."
 
Timberlake 1, West 0.
 
 
And just for old time's sake...
