Watch Santigold Play an Impossibly Mean Version of Herself on ‘The Office’

santigold, the office

Santigold punched the clock to make a cameo on NBC’s The Office last night (May 9), appearing as a judge on the fictional talent show America’s Next Great A Cappella Sensation. The Master of My Make-Believe singer acted alongside American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, to play a crueler version of herself because, as Ed Helms’ Andy Bernard character put it in the episode, “On this show, all three judges are mean.” Santi’s pretty ruthless in the above segment — maybe she has a future in the TV singing competition game. We hear there’s an opening at American Idol.

Watch last night’s entire episode of The Office, which also packed in a cameo from Sugar Ray frontman Mark McGrath, on HuluThe Office will air its final episode next week, May 16, on NBC at 9 p.m. EST. The hour-long installment will reportedly feature several guest stars, including Joan Cusack, Mindy Kaling, B. J. Novak, Ed Begley Jr., and Steve Carell. A retrospective on the nine-season series will air immediately before at 8 p.m. EST.
