The One ‘SNL’ Sketch Blake Shelton Didn’t Get to Do
Country's own Blake Shelton rocked the 'Saturday Night Live' stage in more ways than one last weekend. Not only did he perform two of his biggest hits, he also delighted with comedic sketches poking fun at everything from 'The Bachelor' to country music -- even to his own country upbringing! But there's still one sketch Shelton wishes he could have done ...
Other than that one unfulfilled desire, Shelton says he was more than happy to do whatever the 'SNL' writers wanted the him to do as the show's host for the evening. Hilariously, this included an opening monologue in which he compared himself to Justin Bieber, a late '90s country music video spoof and even Shelton donning a blonde wig for a skit called 'Farm Hunk,' inspired by ABC's hit show, 'The Bachelor.'
"I wanted to take the full ride and what a ride it was," says the singer. "Any sketch the cast and writers wanted to do, I was up for it. They are an amazing group of talented people."
But as for the highlight of his night, performing his music will forever be Shelton's favorite part.
"I'm most excited about me and the band getting to play 'Neon Light' and 'Boys 'Round Here,' " he says. "['SNL' is] an iconic show and it was cool to be part of it."
