Taylor Swift Tackles Saturday Night Live

Overall, I thought Taylor Swift did a pretty good job last night as both the host, and musical act on Saturday Night Live.

The opening monologue was a little goofy but the skits involving Kate Gosselin and Twilight (for those of you who love Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart) were actually pretty funny.

I was a little surprised at the lack of reference to the Kanye West incident because there were some great opportunities for sketches, but I’ll survive 🙂

What did you think of her performance?

From the Wall Street Journal:

Taylor took the stage for the opening monologue in a glittery black dress and, playing a guitar, performed a comic tune called “Monologue Song (La La La).” In the number, she took a lyrical swipe at Joe Jonas, her ex-boyfriend, and sang “and if you’re wondering if I might/ be dating the werewolf from “Twilight”/ I’m not going to comment on that in my monologue.”

The singer appeared in a segment sending up “The View”-she played guest host Kate Gosselin, complete with the reality mom’s famously asymmetrical hairdo. “My hairdresser was halfway through giving me ‘The Rachel’ when his blowdryer exploded on the back of my head,” Swift as Gosselin said, explaining the genesis of her hairstyle.

Swift appeared in a lot of skits, and she had her moments in most of them. She had a funny, crazy laugh in a bit about being interviewed by manipulative celebrity reporters. In another segment she played a teen, fed up with all the talk about “Driving While Texting,” who starts campaigning against the dangerous things that parents do, including “Driving While Arguing with the GPS” and “Driving While Singing Along To a Song You Don’t Know the Lyrics To.”

    My Daughter (a Tayor Fan) and I watched SNL and, overall, I thought the whole Show was one of the best I’ve seen in a while. Even the “News” material— which alot of times hardly causes me to Snicker— was good last night. Not only did Taylor do a good Job and surprisingly appeared to be “a Natural”, but the Skits themselves were all pretty Funny. I thought “The View”, the “Interview”, and the one where she and Keenan were “Inmates” were especially Comical. I found myself Laughing through most of the Show, which doesn’t seem to happen too regularly anymore. It was one of those nights where the Host AND the Material was a strong “Thumbs-up”.

    Taylor Swift pretty much had to mention Kanye; I wonder if she wrote that song herself…
