Double threat Bruno Mars brought it to SNL over the weekend. He pulled double duty as host and musical performer. (We’ve seen some of his humor in The Lazy Song, The Lazy Song with Leonard Nimoy, and Whatta Man). The singer faced his nerves head-on and opened the shows with a musical number. Bruno showed this comedic chops with several skits and a couple of musical performances. He shows his robotic movements at the Amusement Park, where things get spooky when the Merryville Halloween animatronics act out on a broken ride. For the mock TV show Haters, he plays a young girl on the talk show with boos for everyone, trolls the bottom of the barrel for guests and haters. In Sad Mouse, Bruno suits up as an emotionally distraught mascot works for tips in Times Square and finds true love. In the Pandora sketch, he becomes the human jukebox Devin, the Pandora intern. As people select songs on Pandora after the power goes out, he tries his best to sing song to keep Pandora going including Green Day, Aerosmith, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Louie Armstrong, and Michael Jackson singles. (The Pandora sketch is not available online probably due to rights issues). In addition to skits and sketches, Bruno Mars performed two of his latest songs Locked Out Of Heaven and Young Wild Girls.
