The latest gossip on Saturday Night Live: Justin Vernons back again. As a Bon Iver member, he let on that he was doing a skit on the most talked about baby – Blue Ivy – who is Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter. The skit was about a number of musicians visiting the couple in order to see the child. The role of Bon Iver was to lull the baby to sleep by singing her Holocene which was the nominated song for the Grammy. Still on Saturday Night Live, Jack White was the one announced as a future musical guest once the show returns on air.
