I'm a Michael Buble' fan!
I'm as stunned as you are. To be honest, I've never heard of Michael Buble' before last night's episode of SNL (which was epic, btw). Buble's sketch with host Jon Hamm was greatness.
The writing at SNL has really stepped up to the challenge since the loss of Tina Fey. Seth Meyers now rules the SNL roost as head writer and he has not disappointed. Weekend Update is as sharp edged as it ever was and maintains it's foothold as the highpoint of SNL.
edit: Case in point. SNL is doing a lot of delayed reaction running gags that require quite a bit of setup. The "Greg is not an alien" bit was a great example. It started out as a marginal skit and has evolved into a legit running gag they can fit new characters into. The current set of recurring guests on Weekend Update like NY Gov. David Patterson, The Two Gay Jersey Guys and my personal favorite Jersey Shore's "Snooki" are pure gold. It's not SNL in it's heydey, but it's a far cry from the Joe Piscapo depths of dispair. I do have to say Bobby Moynihan may be the closest thing we've seen to John Belushi since Chris Farley. He's got it, whatever it is.
What really caught me by surprise was the fact Michael Buble' is the singer of several songs I like that are playing/forcefed on our Sirius/XM music at work. I honestly thought they were new Harry Connick, Jr tunes.
Buble' shares Coninck's flair for old school cool. He can take a classic like "Save the Last Dance", combine it with a Rumba beat and make it an all new hit. He's got that "Rat Pack Kharma".
