Saturday Night Live last night might've been the best episode of the season. The episode stars the phenomenal actress Kerry Washington from Scandal with musical guest Eminem. Three segments stuck out in my mind. The first, "My Girl", is a spoof of Ylvis' The Fox. The second was the opening skit to the night's episode that pokes fun at SNL's lack of having a black female cast member which was very interesting as Kerry Washington plays various black women celebrities in a span of seconds. The third segment involves Barack Obama's approval ratings. Check out the three skits below and the full episode as well. Enjoy!
If you missed Frank Ocean make his Saturday Night Live debut earlier tonight, then simply put, you missed a treat. Ocean was accompanied by John Mayer, who flanked him on guitar for performances of "Thinkin' Bout You" and "Pyramids". Both songs contained many subtleties that are different than the studio versions of Channel Orange, as both the sounds of Mayer and the band, plus Ocean's own twist on the vocals make both of these videos must-sees to catch the differences.
I particularly liked the endings of both as in "Thinkin' Bout You", Ocean's vocals and mannerisms raise up a notch (with some ad-libbing as well) and in "Pyramids", Mayer's guitar solo combined with Ocean actually playing the arcade game to symbolically mean... something. I'm not sure exactly what, but what I am sure of is that arcade games are awesome. Be sure to watch both of these - "Thinkin' Bout You" above and "Pyramids" below!
