Justin Bieber Hosts and Performs on ‘SNL’

Justin Bieber didn’t get nominated for any Grammys this year, but he had the last laugh. The teen idol pulled double duty, hosting and performing on this weekend’s “Saturday Night Live.”

The Biebs showed off his acting chops in several skits and performed two songs off the acoustic version of his No. 1 album Believe.

During the “The Miley Cyrus Show: Fan Club” sketch, he addressed reports that he was smoking weed. “I also heard he got busted for smoking weed and he’s really sorry for it, and that people make mistakes and he’s never gonna do it again,” sid Bieber while in character.

Wearing a tank and Jesus piece, he sat down and charmed the ladies with “As Long As You Love Me,” backed by his guitarist Dan Kanter. He returned later for a piano-driven performance of the self-written and produced “Nothing Like Us,” a bonus cut off Believe Acoustic. Swaggy!
