Gabourey Sidibe Cherry Battles Andy Samberg

Gabourey Sidibe‘s appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend brought in mixed reviews, partially due to the fact that she flubbed her lines in a few of the sketches.

One of the most memorable moments of the night was the 26-year-old Precious actress’ digital short with SNL regular Andy Samberg called Cherry Battle.

HOW DO YOU THINK Gabby did as host of SNL??

Watch Gabby and Andy‘s Cherry Battle inside…

That’s a shame, she was sooo funny on The Soup

# 2

Yeah that’s what you want from an SNL-skit, good effects……

# 3

I thought she sucked.

# 4

the skits were not funny at all. but good effects in the digital short. but that was not that funny either. she was ok. i could understand how she messed up a couple times. she’s new at the whole live acting stuff.

# 5

She was ok. Although she messed up a few times you have to remember she is practically a newbie in the Hollywood scene. Most people would mess up on LIVE television if they were new too.

# 6

Yes, she flubbed up (more than once), so unfortunately, I could not bring myself to get through it.

# 7

i thought she was increadibly adorable and cute…i didnt think her mistakes were THAT huge. she was way to likeable for it to even make much of a lasting efect

..completely unfunny. `epic fail.

I thought she did really well, she only screwed up like 3 times but she was funny and had good comedic timing for being fairly new to the live acting. The digital one was good but i also really liked the alarm clock one. I thought she was good and can only get better.

with this image of her a la marilyn monroe in a pink dress, they are making a mockery of her. it’s like, let’s pick the girl who is the absolute extreme of marilyn monroe and have her in a dress blowing in the wind like marilyn. she does not get the joke is on her. she needs to stop letting people laugh at her unhealthy weight and start taking control. she is the butt of the joke and she does not seem to know it. hollywood is cruel. they will spit her out like yesterday’s breakfast in a minute.

not funny skit at all. and she had no lines. so is that why it’s considered the funnier one? she needs to be careful about those 15 minutes. i think she’s on 14 right now.

not gonna lie, she didnt do very well. she messed up ALOT and the skits werent the funny…the only parts i laughed at were kristen wiig and that alarm clock skit

This segment wasn’t even that funny (well, except for the singing cherry), but of course it warrants a post because everyone needs to believe everything Adam Sandler does is hysterical. Gabourey was really adorable though. She’s really brave – much more so than many seasoned actors who come on the show. I’d love to see her next time when she’s less nervous.

pretty much sucked I stopped watching about 30mins in

I think Cherry Battle was supposed to be based on James Earl Jones’ cherry-spitting scene from Exorcist II: The Heretic

I think she’s doing a good job for someone who has not been in the business for that long. i didn’t know what to expect from her hosting SNL, but I was pretty pleased and surprise of how talented she is. Kudos Gabourey :).

I just can’t get passed her obesity. She looks and sounds like she’s going to have a heart attack any second.

Hilarious! I have been watching this show since its inception and she was a lot funnier than many of the past hosts.

She is the most beautiful newcomer on the scene.

The Modern Day Marilyn Monroe.

I think she is so pretty.

U are jealous of her beauty.

Gabourey Sidibe, you keep working girl. Keep smiling because your fans love and admire you. I thought the Marilyn pics were cool, you look good in pink. Don’t let the nasties get you down.

Hey, I like Gabby. She’s charming and intelligent. But she was completely over her head on SNL. She lacked comedic timing. She couldn’t deliver more than two lines in a row without flubbing them. Her attempts at doing an accent were poorly executed. Bottom line, she was almost embarrassingly awful.

Oops!! get up girl and try again, I can’t count the stars I’ve seen
reading Q cards and flubbing lines on that show, it’s part of the
fun [.]

SNL is an enigma. They have talented people, some of their writers are funny comedians, but yet the show is shockingly unfunny!

Even the show had her play all the “fat black chick” stereotypes in the skits. It could be entertaining if it was done as a funny satire, but it was as funny as if they had John Cho come on the show and every skit had him walk around with buckteeth and glasses.

…well, that would actually be funny because of it’s irony. Nevermind, I cannot even be as unfunny as SNL. At least Seth Meyers news is funny, and the female castmembers are cute.

The Cherry Battle was disgusting. Wasn’t tastefully done at all. It was gross to watch for me
