Listen to Justin Timberlake on iHeartRadio

Justin Timberlake is set to perform on this weekend's "Saturday Night Live," but it looks like he wasn't able to make it to New York to shoot the promos.  Instead, host Jimmy Fallon enlisted cast member Kenan Thompson to fill in for the "Mirrors" singer.  

Shot from the snowy roof of the Rockefeller Center, Jimmy and Kenan do their best to make up for Justin's absence, wrapping the comedian's face in a scarf to try and pass him off as the real thing. 

In another clip, Jimmy and Kenan get pelted with snowballs after the host jokes that the singer's flight got canceled. 

Justin is returning for the NBC sketch show's Christmas episode, after hosting back in March ahead of his 20/20 Experience release.  His promotional campaign for the album also included a week-long stint on Jimmy's "Late Night" show.  

The singer is currently making his way around the U.S. on his solo tour, stopping on Thursday in Orlando.  He'll then take a month-long break for the holiday before going back on the road in mid-January.
