Daniel Radcliffe on SNL
In an exceptional Saturday Night Live tonight, Harry Potter himself Daniel Radcliffe performed hosting duties. Among his greatest moments were an appearance on the recurring Target-themed Sketch with Kristen Wiig which had him in a Mullet longing for her - his Co-worker - in a perfect American accent. He also did a hilarious Parody of the Musical Jersey Boys where a majority of the Songs sung were lesser versions of those by Franki Valli and the Four Seasons.  The British Thespian brought out the laughs as indicted-but-not-guilty Casey Anthony's Yorkshire Terrier, going on about how treacherous it is to have her as his Owner.  "Life is ruff", he claimed.

The brightest moment had Radcliffe once again in the role that made him famous, re-visiting Hogwarts with Jason Sudeikis as Draco Malfoy and Bill Hader as Severus Snape.  At the end of it Radcliffe declared with confidence, "I've still got it!".

Up-and-coming Musical Guest Lana Del Rey performed her Tracks Video Games and my favourite Blue Jeans to warm reaction from the in-house Audience (although more mixed reviews on Twitter) crooning multiple throatier, melodic variations to her recorded renditions.  Her Debut Disc Born to Die hits stores January 27, 2012 via Universal Music.

Although it might take a day to surface, visit Global Television's Website for Clips watchable in Canada.

It will be interesting to see the numbers from tonight's Broadcast as clearly fellow Muggles - and there are many - were watching.  Within moments of Tweeting my love of Radcliffe's American accent, I saw hundreds of ReTweetsAmaze!  

Less than two weeks till Radcliffe is in Toronto for the Canadian Premiere of The Woman in Black.  I wonder which of my Readers will be winning Passes to the Affair! Hmm...
