Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth's 'SNL' Cameo In A 'Price Is Right' Parody Has Twitter Laughing & Swooning — VIDEO
Saturday Night Live always knows how to make an hilarious game show parody. The Price Is Right parody on Saturday, Nov. 4's episode was definitely no exception — especially because of its epic guest cameos. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth's SNL cameo in The Price Is Right parody was surprising, yet not surprising since the couple is back together. Cyrus also happens to be SNL's musical guest this week. Alec Baldwin regularly appears on the show as President Donald Trump and he made a cameo in the sketch playing Tony Bennett.
In the parody, this celebrity edition of The Price is Right pairs famous contestants with regular folks who have, as the game show says, "come on down!" The sketch let guest host Larry David break out his acclaimed Bernie Sanders impression one more time. Other celebs that came out to play for the sketch were SNL cast member Kate McKinnon's Tilda Swinton, Cecily Strong's Sofia Vegara, Melissa Villaseñor's Ariana Grande, and Alex Moffat's Chris Hemsworth. Naturally, the non-famous contestant paired with Chris Hemsworth was Amanda (played by Cyrus). In what could be the joke of the night, Amanda and Moffat's Chris H. have the following exchange.
Amanda: You're really cute.
Chris Hemsworth: Thanks, love. But I'm married.
Amanda: Do you have a brother?
As viewers know, yes he does — and Liam happens to be dating Miley in real life. The joke could have ended there, but the SNL sketch took it one beat further. As the contestants and celebs place bids for a washing machine, Moffat's Chris H. asks if he could phone a friend, thinking he's on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire instead. The friend in question drops by — and it's Chris' brother Liam, who appears as himself.
Both Amanda and Twitter were beside themselves, swooning and laughing at the same time.
The cameos cured all of this fan's current and future bad moods.
Another fan couldn't help but "fangirling" over the cameos in the sketch.
Other fans on Twitter had a lot of feelings about the couple's appearance together.
One Twitter user thought that we should have seen these cameos coming.
In the rest of the SNL episode, Cyrus sang songs from her new album Younger Now, appeared in a music video sketch called "Baby Steps" (which Larry David hilariously refused to join), and she played a theater student in a parody of a high school news show. She is also currently a coach on the hit NBC reality music competition show The Voice.
Comedy isn't a new frontier for Cyrus — she starred in the Disney Channel sitcom Hannah Montana from 2006 until 2011. She has even appeared opposite David before. On Thursday, Nov. 2, Cyrus posted a throwback video to her Instagram account, in which David makes a cameo on Hannah Montana. Too cool.
Liam Hemsworth is the known inspiration for Cyrus' song, "Malibu," from the album, and, according to her Instagram account, he snapped the cover art for the single. Cyrus and Hemsworth first met and began dating after starring in the movie The Last Song together in 2009. They got engaged in 2012, but they broke it off in late 2013. In 20016, Cyrus confirmed to Ellen DeGeneres that she and Hemsworth are engaged once again. Aww.
Since then, they've been posting cute and happy couple photos to their respective Instagram accounts, like when they celebrated the new year together or when she photoshopped his head on her from Valentine's Day.

And now, you can add their hilarious cameo on SNL to the list. Hemsworth and Cyrus are truly couple goals.
