Anna Kendrick shines on ‘SNL’

I have a hard time staying up past 11:30 p.m. these days, so I usually end up watching “SNL” skits on Hulu.

This weekend I was up late and for the first time in forever caught the beginning live.

No wonder host Anna Kendrick is still trending on Facebook two days after it aired, she was fantastic!

Of course, incorporating Disney songs in the show didn’t hurt.

In the first half, viewers were treated to “Beauty and the Beast” and “The Little Mermaid.”

Expect the mermaid skit to be included in the “Best of SNL” shows. Ursula’s lines were classic.

They even managed to get Kendrick’s “Pitch Perfect” breakout hit “Cups” song in a skit.

On a side note, this “SNL” cast seems to be the biggest ever (is that intro long enough), but Kate McKinnon is cleary the standout to me. (Google her as Justin Beiber, you’ll thank me.)

Could she become the next Kristen Wiig?
