You must tune in, because Psy (above) is going to be honored this year. You haven’t seen nearly enough of him this year, so don’t tell me you’re Psy-ced out. He’ll win a new media trophy for his more the more than 717 million clicks on his “Gangnam Style” video. Also on the schedule: Justin Bieber, Kelly Clarkson, Carly Rae Jepsen, Taylor Swift, No Doubt, Nicki Minaj, and Christina Aguilera.

Perhaps by the end of the season, the current cast will have jelled, and a few of the more recent additions will stand out. I’m thinking Kate McKinnon has some potential; her Ellen DeGeneres impersonation was mediocre, but she has commanding energy. Also, Taran Killam, whose “Gangnam Style” goof last week, Mokiki, was hysterical. This week’s host is Jeremy Renner, and Maroon 5 is going to perform.
