Watch Jack White On SNL

On last night's Lindsay Lohan-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live, Jack White took the opportunity to air out a couple of songs from Blunderbuss, his forthcoming debut solo album.

Watch Jack White In Some Lohan SNL Promos

Tomorrow night's episode of Saturday Night Live should be pretty fascinating: Lindsay Lohan attempting to salvage a career, Jack White doing his best to launch his solo endeavors, some sort of inevitable and richly deserved Oscar evisceration.

Watch Sleigh Bells Perform — And Justin Timberlake Impersonate Bon Iver — On SNL

A day after broadcasting their sold out NYC T5 show on YouTube, Sleigh Bells brought their Marshall stacks and tourist guitarist Jason Boyer to the considerably more intimate SNL studios across town.

Watch SNL Parody M.I.A., Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel hosted SNL over the weekend with musical guest Karmin (I won't even get into that) and overall, she did a pretty nice job. The show featured Nasim Pedrad's M.I.A. impression for a parody episode of Piers Morgan Tonight investigating the Super Bowl Halftime "scandal" as well as Abby Elliot's own Zooey Deschanel… More »

Music’s 10 Most Scandalous Live-TV Moments

When M.I.A. held up her middle finger during Madonna's Super Bowl Halftime Show last weekend, she dominated blog chatter for a few days and incited a few minor cable-TV debates. She could have to pay a fine, and she's definitely changed the narrative around her next album. But she hasn't gotten anywhere near the… More »

Watch Bon Iver (And Kristen Wiig’s Lana Del Rey Impersonation) On SNL

With one week to go before the Grammys (at which Justin Vernon may win some big awards, but will not perform, thankyouverymuch) Bon Iver hit Studio 8H as musical guests for SNL's Channing Tatum-hosted episode. The band played "Holocene" and my favorite song of last year "Beth/Rest," plus Colin Stetson wore a Liturgy… More »

Lana Del Rey's tidal wave of international buzz (see gallery above) has gotten even taller lately as the release of her insanely anticipated (for better or worse) Born To Die approaches.

The 10 Best Late Night TV Performances Of 2011

Our annual list of late night television's best performances has quickly become an annual exercise in big-upping Jimmy Fallon's music talent booker. Way to go, person responsible for pointing those Studio 6B HD-cameras at our tag cloud: Bang the Fallon gong (btw, there should be a Fallon gong), a full 70% of this list come… More »

Lana Del Rey To Perform On SNL, Two Weeks Before Her Debut LP Release

Well, this is a pretty good sign that something has transcended all our little blog arguments and moved toward mass acceptance: Lana Del Rey will be the musical guest on the first episode of Saturday Night Live of 2012. She'll show up on the 1/14 episode, which Harry Potter (or, fine, "Daniel Radcliffe") will host. More »

SNL Sends Up Thom Yorke, M.I.A., Kanye In “Bublé Duets”

SNL's writers and former champions made this weekend's holiday episode a must see. Between Jimmy Fallon hosting, and the consequent cameo-returns of Weekend Updaters Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, the ever-absurd Tracy Morgan, and some charitable outreach for the less fortunate (Rachel Dratch, Horatio Sanz, and Chris Kattan) -- and the fact that it… More »

Watch Florence + The Machine On SNL

Florence & The Machine returned to SNL last night in what turned out to be a pretty decent episode of music-related content. Host Jason Segel sang with the Muppets in the monologue (Statler to Waldorf: "I hope Florence brought a time machine … so we can go back to before we heard that song!"). More »

Coldplay Return To SNL

Coldplay made their inevitable return to Saturday Night Live on this weekend's Emma Stone-hosted episode, playing their Mylo Xyloto singles "Paradise" and "Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall" on a stage covered, for some reason, in multicolored pinwheels. Chris Martin's dancing, it bears mentioning, gets tougher to figure out as time goes on. More »

Watch Radiohead On Saturday Night Live

Last night, Radiohead showed up on the season premiere of SNL, their first appearance on that particular television institution since 2000. Alec Baldwin hosted for a record setting 16th time, which meant Steve Martin showed up too.
