Tina Fey, Justin Bieber flirt their way to 'SNL' success

April 12, 2010 |  8:20 am

"Date Night" star Tina Fey and musical guest Justin Bieber lifted "Saturday Night Live" to its second-highest ratings of the season, proving you can indeed flirt your way to success.

Bieber sang "Baby" and "U Smile" off his new album "My World 2.0"; Fey played a teacher, a 9-inch-tall hooker and, of course, Sarah Palin. See the teacher sketch, above, in which Fey plays a physics teacher with a cougar crush. Bieber's Jason then serenades her about things like Spanx, Pilates and shopping for "chunky jewelry from Chico's."

After the jump, watch Tina and Justin behind the scenes, recording their promos for the show.
