Swagger alert! Betty White and Jay Z together on Saturday Night Live, in review (video)

hope when I’m “88 1/2 years old” (as Betty said many times on Saturday Night Live with pride) that I have Betty White swagger! America’s comedic grandma brought down the house on Saturday Night Live this past weekend- bringing in the show’s highest ratings since November 1, 2008 when John McCain made an appearance on the show. Also, Betty holds the title of being the oldest person to host the show. You go girl!…Not to be overlooked was Jay Z who was the musical guest for the night.
