Lonely Island

The trio of "Saturday Night Live"--Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone and Andy Samberg—came along just as the show was slowing down in that wasteland of "awards no one cares about." The hilarious medley of their nominated songs they performed with Michael Bolton, Akon, Maya Rudolph, Ed Helms and John Stamos culminated in a chorus of "U.S.A." For a minute, I thought I was watching the MTV Video Music Awards.
