SNL Beyonce Baby Skit Starring Maya Rudolph

In this SNL skit, Maya Rudolph plays Beyonce and Jay Pharoah does a perfect Jay-Z impersonation. The new parents receive a number of celebrity guests who stop by their mansion to pay respects to baby Blue Ivy Carter. First up is Prince (Fred Armisen) wearing a purple suit and making an entrance through the kitchen so he can have special effects as he walks through the door. We love Fred's Prince impersonation: we need to see more of it. Beyonce sings about her experience in the delivery room. Nicki Minaj (Nasim Pedrad) sings the baby a nightmarish lullaby, which is really funny. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie stop by because Angie's "baby sense was tingling" and Angie tries to leave with the baby. Taylor Swift (Kristen Wiig) doesn't have much to say, but our favorite is the last guest Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, played by surprise guest Justin Timberlake. His lullaby is so boring he puts himself to sleep. Take a look:
