Lady Gaga and Justin Timberlake
Parody themselves on 'SNL'

Justin Timberlake and Lady Gaga teamed up for three skits on this weekend's season finale of Saturday Night Live, and though this "What's That Name?" bit was the least flashy, it was the one that showed off both singer's comedic chops. In the sketch, Gaga and Timberlake star as themselves on a game show in which they are simply asked to recall the names of various people. As it turns out, this version of Timberlake is a self-absorbed cad who can't even remember the name of his former bandmate, while Gaga is fan-friendly to the point that it's totally implausible and sorta creepy. It's a great premise for self-parody and both stars totally commit – Gaga, by being cartoonish and weird, and Timberlake by displaying a lot of nuance in his flustered reaction.
