‘Saturday Night Live’ Recap: Bruno Mars on Double Duty; Stefon Returns to ‘Weekend Update’ (VIDEOS)

BRUNO MARS AS ELVIS
The pop star was once the world's youngest Elvis impersonator.
Bruno Mars has a great head of hair — and he knows it.

On Saturday, the 25-year-old delivered his opening monologue for Saturday Night Live with song and dance, naturally, but not without making fun of his famous mane.

“I have to say I’m a little nervous,” the host and musical guest said onstage.

“I’ve never done comedy before. I don’t have any acting experience at all. I’ve never even done a shampoo commercial, which is crazy!” Mars said, before breaking out into a song.

The Grenade singer also mentioned newlywed and SNL double-duty alum Justin Timberlake.

“Will I someday regret this? Is it a terrible mistake? Can I put aside my fears, can I be Timberlake?” Mars crooned.

What were some other highlights from Saturday’s episode?

SNL continued with its season of surprise guest stars. After last week’s appearance by Olympian Usain Bolt, this week’s cold opening was graced with the presence of Tom Hanks, who portrayed an undecided voter from last week’s presidential debate.
