OFFSTAGE: Faux Scotty McCreery Makes SNL‘s “Holy Night”

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Michael Bublé couldn’t believe what he was hearing when Scotty McCreery sang. OK, it wasn’t actually McCreery. It was this weekend’s (Dec. 17) Saturday Night Live spoof on him , during a commercial for an unreal Michael Bublé Christmas Duets album. But Bublé is in awe of the McCreery impersonator when they duet on “O Holy Night,” and the faux McCreery stretches our dear savior’s “birth” out for a good seven seconds. Later that night McCreery tweeted, “Apparently they had something about me on snl tonight, hahah. That’s pretty cool” and “Hopefully someone puts it on YouTube so I can see it.” The whole commercial is pretty hilarious with several other impersonations, including Kristen Wiig as Taylor Swift on “I Saw Three Ships (Come Sailing In)” and Jimmy Fallon as Sting on “Deck the Halls” and as Justin Bieber on “Jingle Bells.”
