Video: Lil Wayne and Eminem Take Over 'SNL'

Plus: Watch Akon assist Lonely Island on 'I Just Had Sex'

December 20, 2010 1:20 PM ET

Saturday Night Live recruited Eminem and Lil Wayne for their last show of 2010, with the two MCs dueting on their vindictive, Haddaway-sampling single "No Love." The sample of the   hit "What Is Love" (enshrined on SNL in Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan's Roxbury skits) was still intact during Saturday's performance, although a live band also accompanied the duo.

Random Notes: Gaga, Lil Wayne, And More

Later in the show, Lil Wayne -- making his second TV appearance since his release from prison in early November -- took the stage solo to perform his just-released single "Six Foot Seven Foot." The Bangladesh-produced track debuted online last Tuesday and is currently the Number One song on the iTunes Store's singles chart.

The joke-rap duo Lonely Island also debuted a new song, the Akon-assisted "I Just Had Sex," during Saturday's broadcast. The boast-filled track is something of a successor to the duo's similarly overexcited "Jizz In My Pants"; the video stars Gossip Girl's Blake Lively and Little Fockers' Jessica Alba as Andy Samberg and Jorma Taccone's less-than-impressed paramours.

“Don't Dream It's Over”

Crowded House | 1986

Early in the sessions for Crowded House's debut album, the band and producer Mitchell Froom were still feeling each other out, and at one point Froom substituted session musicians for the band's Paul Hester and Nick Seymour. "At the time it was a quite threatening thing," Neil Finn told Rolling Stone. "The next day we recorded 'Don't Dream It's Over,' and it had a particularly sad groove to it — I think because Paul and Nick had faced their own mortality." As for the song itself, "It was just about on the one hand feeling kind of lost, and on the other hand sort of urging myself on — don't dream it's over," Finn explained.
