Lady Gaga was both host and musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" on Nov. 16. And she killed it -- not only did the singer show off incredible pipes but she also hit all the right comedy notes throughout the show.
Keep in mind, Lady Gaga is not an actress. She's a singer. Even with a flair for the theatrical, most musical artists struggle a bit with broad comedy. Gaga, however, dropped right in like she'd always been an "SNL" star.
What worked with Gaga?
Many singers incorporate their pipes into the "SNL" opening monologue. But very few of them come up with a clever, completely subject-appropriate, original song. There was also choreography. Even more impressive was the pointed and smart humor of the subject: Applause for pandering comments.
"Put your hands together if you want to end childhood obesity."
Seriously, can every host listen to this song and »
