Justin Timberlake Takes A Jab At Kanye West During ‘SNL’ Performance

The 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

During Justin Timberlake’s fifth stint hosting “Saturday Night Live,” the SNL vet hit a high point last night when he made a jab at Kanye during his performance of “Suit & Tie.”

During Kanye West’s performance at London’s Hammersmith Apollo Theatre a few weeks ago he went off on one of his characteristic rants that took a jab at Justin and Jay-z’s efforts. “Remind me again who’s the original super-fly? And I got love for Hov but I ain’t f—ing with that ‘Suit & Tie’,” he told the crowd.

JT didn’t let that comment go unanswered. He replied back playfully during his performance of the song last night. During the second verse he smoothly slipped in the line, “My hit’s so sick, got rappers acting dramatic.”

Hov stepped in the middle of the song to deliver his lines with the Tennessee Kids grooving in the background.

The “Mirrors” singer was on top of his game last night, hitting every comedic high point in the show and his subtle response to Yeezy was among some of the best moments during last night’s episode.
