Bill Hader, John Solomon and Rob Klein comment on cut SNL sketch with Justin Bieber, “Song For Daddy”

Here’s one more treat from the season of Saturday Night Live that just ended, complete with one bonus look from recently departed cast member Bill Hader.

Hader weighs in on a sketch, “Song For Daddy,” cut after dress rehearsal from the week that Justin Bieber hosted and performed as musical guest — a weekend that made it tough to judge if any of the sketches were funny since the girls in the audience screamed throughout, regardless of the content. Except for, well, this one particular sketch. Why? What happened? Hader is joined in commentary by SNL writers John Solomon and Rob Klein.

See for yourself why “Song For Daddy” didn’t make the cut.

Roll the clip!

So, to recap.

Bill Hader played singer in a band, with Bieber as his son on the keyboards. But things go off the rails quickly after the song ends, and Hader calls the whole thing a “trainwreck.”
