The actress, who was hosting the variety TV show, gamely appeared in a variety of other sketches, including one where she wore Tudor clothes and sang a duet parodying Shakespeare plays.

She also played a 1970s songwriter, a policewoman, a Spanish TV presenter and Heidi Klum, trying to get a presenting job on CNN with Eliot Spitzer.

She ended up singing and appeared in a sketch with one of her idols, singer Cee Lo.

'I am such a big fan of Cee Lo - he is so gorgeous and amazing and talented,' she has said.

'I had never really been exposed to much country music, but during this movie I fell madly in love with it and listen to it all the time,' she has said.
