Break out the skinny mics, we're going on a musical journey.

Where would we be without Cher?

Besides a question I ask myself every morning when I wake up, it's also something of a mantra for Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph.

On last night's Maya and Marty, the two comedic gems paid tribute to the Carol Burnetts, the Chers, and the Vicki Lawrences--thank you, Vicki Lawrence--that came before them with a musical medley featuring some classic variety show staples: skinny mics, breast-high stools, playful banter, and chops. Let's not forget the chops.

Displaying brilliant comedic timing and the ability to carry and hold a note, Tina and Maya reminded us why variety shows were so much fun in the first place. I wouldn't have minded a Bob Mackie tearaway, but we can't always get what we want.
