Kudos to Twilight's Taylor Lautner.

The 17-year-old New Moon hunk did a nice job hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend and even poked fun at his relationship with a certain country cutie during his opening monologue.

During his opening bit, Lautner playfully admitted to being "friends with benefits" -- not with Taylor Swift -- but Reba McEntire! (played by the always funny Kenan Thompson).

Lautner went on to show off his impressive martial arts skills as he attacked a life size cut-out of Kanye West, who famously grabbed the trophy for Best Female Video from Lautner's rumored girlfriend at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards last September.

In another skit, Lautner, donning a bad wig and wearing a pink shirt that read 'Team Edward', played Mariana, a girl who was at odds with her friend who sported a 'Team Jacob' shirt.

Clutching a notebook with Robert Pattinson's picture on it, Mariana (aka Lautner)  remarked, "If those abs are real then the dude who plays Jacob deserves an Oscar."
