Kanye West, Vampire Weekend Booked For SNL Next Month

Steve Buscemi besties Vampire Weekend and daddy-to-be Kanye West have been announced as the last two musical guests for this season of Saturday Night Live. The Vamps will appear on the show on 5/11 with host Kristin Wiig, who only left her post as cast member last season. West will perform on the following week’s season finale with host Ben Affleck. We’ll just have to wait and see if Nasim Pedrad and Jay Pharaoh revive their parody of West and his ladyfriend — and what kind of reaction that will elicit in Kanye. Should be fun!

  1. Don’t want to get too ahead of myself, but Kanye is probably going to perform new material during his appearance. And with rumors of his first single being a collaboration with Daft Punk, who have been doing much of their promotion for their album during SNL which drops a handful of days after the finale, it can’t be too far fetched to hope for a live performance from the two, would it? It helps that the last and only time Daft Punk performed on live American television, it was with Kanye at the Grammys. That would be a pretty spectacular bit for SNL, Kanye, DP, and the fans.
