It wouldn't have been an episode of SNL without an appearance from Gilly (apparently).Â Bieber killed in this sketch, in that she literally shot someone to death on stage.Â A warrant for her arrest is pending, because LOOK AT THAT PUNUM!Â Seriously, Biebs is totes presh and spesh (totally precious and special).
This was definitely the best sketch I've seen all year.Â Bieber's raw physicality and stage presence was awe-inspiring.Â Seriously, she owned that stage.Â My only complaint would be the overuse of the character's catchphrase, "Why did I choose to live near the river on top of my van?Â I could easily live inside the van!"
Agent Mulder himself showed up for a reprise of his classic "Goat Files" sketch (based on a sneeze by Jim Breuer).Â Biebs did Goat Skully justice, but not a whole lot.
I think it's a testament to Bieber's skills as an actress that she appeared as herself in this sketch.Â Maybe I don't know what "testament" or "actress" or "skills" mean, but I stand by what I said.
She puked in this one, too.
