Mick Jagger is best known for his singing and wild moves -- but on the series finale of Saturday Night Live the singer also showcased his comedy skills.
Mick popped up in a number of sketches, playing characters like a nervous accountant forced to sit through others' Jagger impersonations at a karaoke bar, a financial expert, a closeted gay 1960s movie star and even Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler.
However the highlight of the show came when the iconic Rolling Stones frontman performed his classic tunes 19th Nervous Breakdown, It's Only Rock 'n' Roll and The Last Time with Foo Fighters and Arcade Fire- as well as a special performance with guitar great Jeff Beck for a new blues tune about the upcoming U.S. presidential elections, in which he sang, "If you wanna sleep in the West Wing, you've got to strategise a bit".
Jagger shared the night with SNL regular Kristen Wiig, who was saying goodbye to the show that made her famous after a seven- year run.
The Bridesmaids co-writer and star fought back tears as she danced with Jagger, SNL creator Lorne Michaels and her comedy co-stars as members of Arcade Fire and the house band performed the Rolling Stones' Ruby Tuesday.
