Justin Timberlake brought the funny as host -- for the fifth time -- on the March 9 episode of "Saturday Night Live."

The 32-year-old actor's opening monologue, which showed him getting inducted into the "Five Timers Club," featured guest appearances by esteemed actors Dan Akroyd, Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, Tom Hanks, Candice Bergen, Alec Baldwin and Paul Simon. The talented bunch offered up some laughs and special moments -- such as Short engaging in the "Three Amigos" salute -- and got the show off to a promising start.

Timberlake went on to reprise one of his most famed characters, the smooth-voiced "[Expletive] in a Box" singer, alongside retired cast member Andy Samberg. In the sketch, titled "It's a Date," the pair crooned to a dating contestant while competing against three other suitors -- two of which were Akroyd and Martin reprising their classic "Two Wild and Crazy Guys" skit, which they haven't performed since 1998.

The former N'Sync singer, who is known for bringing it on down to Omeletteville, Homelessville, Plasticville and Liquorville, brought it on down to Veganville in the March 10 episode, which saw the singer dressed as a giant piece of tofu.

"Alright stop, vegetarian nation," the star sang to the catchy tune of Vanilla Ice's song, "Ice Ice Baby." "We got the cure for constant constipation -- fiber. It's a dope ingredient. The thing you want to make your bowels expedient. Brown, rice, baby."

The singer also appeared as the musical guest on the episode, offering a powerful rendition of his new single, "Suit & Tie." The performer, who rocked the stage with the help of several props and back up dancers, was also joined on-stage by special guest Jay-Z.
