New York noise-pop duo Sleigh Bells visited the set of Saturday Night Live over the weekend, playing songs “Comeback Kid” and “End of the Line” off their sophomore album Reign of Terror. With a wall of amps positioned behind them pair’s blasting distortion and machine beats seemed another unfortunate victim of the studio’s poor sound quality.

The true highlight of the night however involved a different kind of musical guest, with unofficial cast member Justin Timberlake showing up to impersonate Bon Iver‘s Justin Vernon for a sketch involving a celebrity welcome for Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s new baby Blue Ivy. Check out all the videos, as well as the real Vernon’s Twitter reaction down below. Jack White was recently revealed to be the musical guest for the upcoming March 3 episode.
