  • Blake Shelton Brings Country Music to "Saturday Night Live"

    Blake Shelton brought country music to Saturday Night Live in a big way as the host and musical guest this past weekend.

    In addition to performing his #1 hits "Neon Light" and "Boys Round Here,", Blake recreated the "Picking and Grinning" segment from the classic country variety show Hee Haw for his monologue. Several SNL cast members, dressed in gingham and overalls, joined Blake onstage for the Hee Haw bit, but his attempts at teaching them about G-rated country humor went south very quickly.

     

     

    Next up, Blake wore a blonde wig and moustache to look like Alan Jackson for the '90s-inspired music video, "Wishin' Boot," co-starring Aidy Bryant as a version of Wynonna and Kate McKinnon dressed up like Reba. The inspirational song parody told the story of a boot that mysteriously appeared to grant wishes for the down-and-out.

    The country theme continued with Blake playing an Iowa farmer looking for love in "Farm Hunk," a version of ABC's The Bachelor. He actually played himself in a Celebrity Family Feud sketch with the SNL players in the role of Blake's fellow coaches from The Voice taking on the American Idol judges. Later, Blake played a singer/songwriter performing a disturbing love song he had to write for his landlord. He closed out the show with turns as a Texas parole board officer and a heckler at a magic show.

    Blake joins a short list of country stars to host Saturday Night Live, including Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton and Johnny Cash.
