Jennifer Lopez Plays Rihanna In SNL's 'We Are the World' Sketch

Jennifer Lopez pulled double duty as host and performer on "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, and her funniest moment by far was her first one. In a sketch about "We Are the World 3" -- a new all-star recording "raising awareness of the 'We Are the World 2' disaster" -- Lopez impersonated Rihanna, from the fellow pop singer's asymmetrical haircut to her signature "eh ehs."

Other choice impersonations came from cast members Kristen Wiig, who took on on Gwen Stefani's girlish croon; Jason Sudeikis, who donned Adam Lambert's all-black leather uniform; and Abby Elliott, who poked fun at Shakira's vocals.

"While the original 'We Are the World' brought together stars like Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen and Tina Turner, this new version was a sloppy mess of half-famous randos, like Bizzy Bone and Nipsey Hussle," said Kenan Thompson (playing Quincy Jones), summing up what seems to be the general consensus on the "We Are the World" remake. Watch what else the "SNL" cast took issue with, from Justin Bieber's frightened face to the egregious presence of one Fonzworth Bentley.
