Justin Timberlake Teams With Kenan Thompson For SNL Promo

It's always good news to know that Justin Timberlake is hosting and serving as the musical guest for an episode of Saturday Night Live. In addition to being musically gifted, the "Suit & Tie" singer is always funny and usually delivers one of the better episodes of the season. Even with that in mind, the promo video for this Saturday's episode still works in boosting our excitement even further for his next turn as host. Check it out ahead!

In the promo below, Timberlake tries to promote the show on his own and fails, throws a fit when he realizes he's forgotten something, and shows off just how capable he is at running the show, all (or mostly) with Kenan Thompson at his side.

We know Timberlake's capable of handling more than one responsibility. He's pulled double duty as host/musical guest two other times. This Saturday's episode will be his fifth time hosting, and given his past hilarity, we should be in for a real treat this weekend. Is it too much to hope for a return of Lonely Island and another musical digital short? Timberlake's contributed to some of the more memorable of those, including "Dick in a Box" and "Motherlover".

Friday Live Pie Saturday Night Live airs Saturday at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
