Celebrity Family Feud

Justin plays Jimmy Fallon, while Jimmy Fallon – who was on the show as host this time – plays Jim Parsons from “Big Bang Theory.” At one point Timberlake’s impersonation is so spot-on that he laughs and the camera pans over to catch Fallon absolutely cracking up.

Barry Gibb Talk Show

Justin and Jimmy team up again for a recurring sketch that is always a hit. But this edition of the Barry Gibb Talk Show was over-the-top, with an appearance by the real Barry Gibb, who helped sing the theme song. Who wouldn’t want to “talk it up” with these two?

D*** in a Box
The “SNL Digital Short” was the song that started it all, but enjoy this live version, performed at Madison Square Garden:

The followups “Mother Lover” and “Three Way” are also Timberlake/Lonely Island classic team-ups.

Any of ‘Ville’ sketches

Justin followed up the success of 2003′s Omletteville with hits including Veganville, Homelessville, Liquorville, and the latest, Wrappingville. So, “bring it on down” and enjoy this sketch.

BeyoncĂ©’s “Single Ladies”

The actual video clip of this entire sketch is nowhere to be found on the Internet; (rumor has it J.T. refused to allow “SNL” to post it). But we found the next best thing: clips of Justin, and “SNL’s” Andy Samberg and Bobby Moynihan, all dressed in leotards and heels auditioning to be backup dancers for BeyoncĂ©, set to the actual song.

BONUS: That time Timberlake dissed Kanye in song

During a 2013 show, J.T. altered one of the lyrics of his hit “Suit and Tie,” to “My hits so sick, got rappers acting dramatic,” in response to Kanye West poking fun at the song.
