The Weeknd Performs on Saturday Night Live


The sketch comedy and variety show Saturday Night Live, created by Toronto’s Lorne Michaels, has been running since 1975 and is based in New York, USA. The October 1, 2016 broadcast had The Weeknd return as musical guest who performed two songs from his upcoming album. “Starboy” is the second most popular song in Canada this week according to the Billboard Hot 100, and we embed below the SNL performance of the track which thankfully was performed with clean lyrics. Not present was French outfit Daft Punk featured in the song. Below that is The Weeknd’s delivery of “False Alarm”. Judging by the commentary, most folks seemed more interested in his less flamboyant hair style than the performance itself. Taking honours for the more flamboyant hairstyle was Alec Baldwin, but we won’t get into that. Abel did a fine job.
