Justin Timberlake stole the show on Saturday night as he returned for his fifth time hosting Saturday Night Live. According to Billboard, preliminary Nielsen figures suggest that the episode gained the highest rating for the NBC series in 14 months, since Charles Barkley hosted in January, 2012. “There are so many exciting things about hosting five times,” Timberlake said. “You get to see old friends, you get to try new things. You get to inevitably let everyone down due to incredibly high expectations — thanks, Internet.”

Stars including Paul Simon, Steve Martin, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, Tom Hanks, Candice Bergen, Alec Baldwin, Andy Samberg and Jay-Z, all stopped by to lend a helping hand in making this one of the best SNL episodes in a long while. You can watch the entire episode above, or you can check out his performance of “Suit & Tie” after the jump.
