7 Reasons Why We Hope Andy Samberg Will Perform With Lonely Island at the Emmys!
By Alex Ungerman
What on earth will Andy Samberg do??
As we gear up for the Emmys this weekend, we can't help but be excited that the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star, who spent years making us laugh on Saturday Night Live as part of The Lonely Island comedy music squad, is hosting the big awards show!
Our expectations are actually limitless! Will the Lonely Island be there? Will they drop a new song? Will Justin Timberlake be featured?? Because pretty much all of that would add up to probably one of the most entertaining Emmy awards in a long time. To tide yourself over, here are some of the group's most memorable songs from back in the day.
(WARNING: Some of these are NSFW-ish, so keep that in mind.)
Starting with "Dick in a Box" in 2006 (Yep, it's almost 10 years old), followed by "Motherlover" in 2009, and the Lady Gaga-backed "3-Way (The Golden Rule)" in 2011, this trio of songs showed Justin and Andy to be the unstoppable comedy force that they are. You probably still have a friend, who is at home eating leftover mashed potatoes, giggling along to "Dick in a Box" on their computer as we speak. That friend may even be you.
Not only that, but "Dick in a Box" actually won a Creative Arts Emmy in 2007 for Outstanding Music & Lyrics, which makes it a perfectly fitting capstone for Emmy weekend. Enjoy!
