Miley Cyrus Fifty Shades of Grey Auditions SNL Saturday Night Live

I’ll admit it, Miley Cyrus’ Saturday Night Live hosting job this past weekend wasn’t half bad. In fact, I laughed out loud at some moments while of course cringing at others. From a creepy Robin Thicke to Miley’s inspired Michelle Bachman, there was a lot to be enjoyed. My favorite sketch by far, however, was the “50 Shades of Grey Auditions.” This new Saturday Night Live cast clearly has some great impersonations up their sleeves and this sketch gave quite the showcase.

As you probably heard, 50 Shades of Grey recently got its finalized cast for the main characters, but Saturday Night Live opted to reimagine the casting process. AND I’M SO GLAD THEY DID.

Personally, I thought Miley’s Scarlett Johansson could have been a little better, but the man voice was pretty good (or should I say pretty weird, but also pretty cool).

The Seth Rogen and Emma Stone screen test is spot on, but it was Taran Killam’s sexual Christoph Waltz that takes the cake. I’m also obsessed with the Philip Seymour Hoffman and Kristen Stewart screen test…”Is she asleep?!”

But don’t take my word for it, check it out yourself below:
