The 39th season of “Saturday Night Live” ended the year with a bang and numerous guests in addition to Jimmy Fallon hosting and Justin Timberlake as the musical guest and co-host. The show featured a slew of celebrity guests including Paul McCartney, Barry Gibb, Madonna, Michael Bloomberg and more.
The opening monologue by Jimmy Fallon was planned to feature some of Jimmy’s musical idols including David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Paul McCartney, but it began with him on stage alone. However, before the sketch was over, Paul McCartney arrived to help him.
