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.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
