Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen -- Andy Samberg!

Andy Samberg: Thank you! Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you so much! It's -- yes! Thank you! Thank you! It's SUPER great to be here hosting the season finale of "SNL"! Unbelievable! Uh, before we begin, I should mention Justin Timberlake could NOT be here tonight. He's touring in Russia. I just want to get that out of the way. But I do understand that he sent a picture to wish me luck.

Andy Samberg: He's a good friend. Anyways -- I myself have had a crazy year. I got married. [ audience cheers ] Yep! And I'm working on a new show -- "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" -- for which I've won TWO Golden Globes. [ the audience cheers wildly ] Yes, I've won TWO Golden Globes for it, which brings new meaning to the phrase: "...And twiiiins!" Thank you! I put on a suit to tell that joke! And, of course, before that, I was a cast member here on "SNL", where I appeared in, uh -- [ the audience cheers wildly ] Thank you! Where I appeared in upwards of 100 Digital Shorts and SIX live sketches. So this is gonna go great! But one thing I was less known for was doing impressions. Now, that said, I was poking around online... and was shocked to find that I only did twenty-three fewer impressions than my fellow castmate and impression master Bill Hader. So I thought -- since he's not here to defend himself -- why not catch him up all in one shot here tonight? So, here to help me break the record -- my good friend, Seth Meyers!

[ Seth Meyers appears and hugs Andy ]

Seth Meyers: How you doing? I'm so excited!

Andy Samberg: So excited! Alright, here we go! Let's put 300 minutes on the clock.
