Jay Pharoah does his impressions for Justin Bieber (to promote Never Say Never)

This is a huge compliment from JB. Justin Bieber doesn't just put any videos on his channel. He only puts up videos that he thinks are good (in order to keep a strong momentum on his channel). So the fact that Justin is featuring Jay's impressions is a huge compliment.

Justin wrote, "well thanks to SNL it looks like the Family Guy Crew, Denzel, Eddie Murphy, Will Smith, TI, Chris Brown, JayZ, and others are all going to see the movie Justin Bieber: NEVER SAY NEVER 3D!! This is a much watch with Jay Pharoah!! NEVER SAY NEVER 3D in Theatres this Friday FEB 11th!!"

JB is also very excited by Jay's impressions here. Anybody's guess who's idea this was, because this is very beneficial to Jay, and it fills Justin's needs well to promote his film and get solid content on his channel. A win win to be sure.

Jay Pharoah is from Black Eyed Peas (SNL)

Show - Our Time!

Miley Cyrus ... Fergie
Abby Elliott ... Khloé Kardashian
Jay Pharoah ...
Jay Pharoah ... announcer (voice)
Andy Samberg ... Taboo
Kenan Thompson ...

You've seen those other two guys from the Black Eyed Peas, and now they have their own show.

Hahahaha. These are new impressions. Kenan's first time as, but Finesse Mitchell did him once. Andy's first time as Taboo, but Jon Heder played him once on SNL. Jay Pharoah's first time as, but Kenan played him once. And Amy Poehler played Fergie last time (it was on 10/8/05).

Abby has done Khloe 4 times now, but this is the first time without her sisters. I think Abby can definitely hold her own without the Kardashian sisters.

I didn't find Jay's dancing particularly funny.
At one point, Jay said something random and the audience laughed. He should have said something random each time before he left.

Jay Pharoah as Eddie Murphy in Teen Crisis Hotline (SNL)

Commercial - Celebrity Teen Crisis Center

Dana Carvey ... Mickey Rooney
Fred Armisen ... Ice-T
Paul Brittain ... caller
Abby Elliott ... Anna Faris
Bill Hader ... Alan Alda
Steve Higgins ... announcer (voice)
Taran Killam ... caller
Nasim Pedrad ... caller
Jay Pharoah ... Eddie Murphy
Kenan Thompson ... caller
Kristen Wiig ... caller

A new VH1 show features celebrities who answer calls for a teen crisis line and attempt to offer help.

Hahahaha. The crew take turns slamming their impressions in. Billy's Alan Alda was #1 (maybe #2 behind Jon Hamm's Robin Williams) in the Back to the Future DVD gauntlet of impressions, but here Bill's Alda doesn't stack up to the humor of the others.

Likewise, Dana Carvey's Mickey Roony just isn't all that funny in comparison to these other impressions. Of course, Jay Pharoah's Murphy stands out the most.

Here's how I'd rank them (just in how entertaining they are):
1. Jay Pharoah - Eddie Murphy
2. Abby Elliott - Anna Farris
3. Fred Armisen - Ice T
4. Dana Carvey - Mickey Roony
5. Bill Hader - Alan Alda

Jay Pharoah is the scientist in Bride of Blackenstein (SNL)

Show - The Essentials: Bride of Blackenstein

Jesse Eisenberg ... Igor
Nicki Minaj ... bride
Bill Hader ... townsperson
Steve Higgins ... announcer (voice)
Jay Pharoah ... scientist
Jason Sudeikis ... Robert Osborne
Kenan Thompson ... Blackenstein
Kristen Wiig ... townsperson

Everyone is familiar with 'Frankenstein' - but you probably never saw the tale of 'Bride of Blackenstein.'

Jay's pretty funny here as the scientist. Kristen's got a nice straight and flat joke.

Jay Pharoah in ESPN Deportes (SNL)

Just because it's in Spanish doesn't mean you can't understand the classic SportsCenter catch phrases!

Hahahaha. Paul Britain makes a case for staying around next season! Also, what a hilarious bit from Bobby Moynihan! Not to mention that Taran nailed that look at the camera!

Jay is a little confused by this Spanish news show. =^)

I like how they have Jay elevated to make him look like he's towering over Fred.
