Dana Carvey’s big SNL return brings mini cast reunion and an appearance from Justin Bieber on ‘Church Chat’ skit

For those who remember the best of the Eighties and early Nineties, Dana Carvey’s 10 year absence from hosting ‘Saturday Night Live’ felt like an eternity (last hosted in 2000). Known for his Who’s Who of outstanding celebrity impersonations and iconic fictional characters, Carvey returned to the New York live set to host the Feb. 5, 2011 episode. And in SNL style, they decided to create a big SNL family reunion; leaving us all with that gut feeling we witnessed something as epical as the Grammys. Jon Lovitz sneaked into the opening monlogue with Carvey trying his hardest to convince the audience that “’86 through ’93 was the best.” Mike Myers teamed up with Carvey for another exciting addition of Wayne’s World (party time, excellent). But who expected to see the Bieb on ‘Church Chat’?

Carvey reprises his role as the Church Lady and digs deep into the sinful pleasures of the Kardashians, ‘Jersey Shore’ star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi (played by Bobby Moynihan) and MTV’s ‘Skins’. Even the real Justin Bieber showed up on the Church Lady’s return to SNL, but it was clear that she was no match for Bieber’s “million-dollar smile” and hair do. Only the voice of Jesus would help suppress Church Lady’s inner lust as Bieber does his best to cope with the tempted talk show nun. Of course, the nine-minute sketch couldn’t end without some churchy organ pumping and the ‘Church Lady’ Dance. There they were -Bieber and Carvey dancing their hearts away in ultimate hilarity.

The pop star, who is the subject of a documentary opening Friday, was also involved in a hilarious SNL digital short called “The Roommate” featuring Andy Samberg.

Musical guests Linkin Park performed “Waiting for the End” and their engaging tribal drum rock-rap anthem “When They Come For Me,”  done with black-and-white cinematography.
