Coldplay made their fifth appearance on SNL last night, performing two songs from Ghost Stories and lending Chris Martin to kiss host Andrew Garfield in a Spider-Man sketch. Earlier in the episode, an all-musician edition of Celebrity Family Feud offered impressions of Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Skrillex, Drake, Adele, and others. And in the digital short “The Beygency,” Garfield’s character learns what happens when you criticize Queen B. I don’t imagine SNL writers were specifically inspired by this week’s Beyoncé controversies with Lily Allen and Warpaint, but it’s pretty appropriate timing.
