Taylor Lautner Hosts ‘SNL’: Defends Taylor Swift, Joins Team Edward

“The Twilight Saga: New Moon” star Taylor Lautner hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, joking about everything from his alleged romance with country singer Taylor Swift to the Team Jacob vs. Team Edward debate from the “Twilight” series.

In his monologue, Lautner told the audience that rumors he is dating a country singer are not true, and added “Reba and I are just friends … with benefits,” with ‘SNL’ star Kenan Thompson dressed in the audience as country singer Reba McEntyre. 

Lautner then mentioned he has gotten close to Swift this year.  He joked about how he didn’t defend Swift when Kanye West interrupted her acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards this past fall.  Lautner was on stage to present the award. 

So, Lautner showed the audience “what he really wanted to do that night.”  In a re-enactment on stage with fake statues of Swift and West, Lautner showed off his impressive martial arts skills, and with a few flips and turns, ended up knocking off the head of the West statue.  He then started to plant a kiss on the Swift statue, but joked to the audience his heart belonged to Reba.

Lautner showed off his comedic side with a skit where he dressed as a girl for a Team Edward vs. Team Jacob skit, which is a big debate amongst “Twilight” fans.  Although Lautner plays Jacob Black in the series, he went to the other side by portraying a teenage girl wearing a Team Edward t-shirt.  He also made references to his much-talked-about abs (he bulked up for his role in “New Moon”), including a funny line that if Jacob’s abs are real, then the actor who plays Jacob should win an Oscar. 

The evening also included a few holiday skits, in which Lautner awkwardly sang and dance with a high school show choir in a Christmas concert (obviously referencing the popular show “Glee”); several references to the Tiger Woods scandal; and musical act Bon Jovi, who showed they still can rock after all of these years.
