Justin Timberlake isn't above a musical diss.

The singer appeared to use his performance on this week's "Saturday Night Live" as a way to get back at rapper Kanye West for insulting his new tune "Suit & Tie."

On "SNL," Timberlake changed a lyric of his song, which West insulted during a concert in London last month, from "S--- so sick, got a hit and picked up a habit" to "My hit's so sick got rappers acting dramatic."

The lyric alteration took place while Timberlake, who hosted "SNL" in addition to being the NBC show's musical guest, was performing on stage with rapper Jay-Z, who is featured on "Suit & Tie."

West and Jay-Z have collaborated in the past, most notably on the 2011 album "Watch the Throne."
