D’Angelo Is Playing SNL
D’Angelo has not played music on TV in many, many years. But with the surprise release of his much-loved comeback album Black Messiah, he is back out there in the world. And now we’ll all get to see exactly how he gets it done onstage. The man will serve as musical guest on the 1/31 episode of Saturday Night Live, as People reports. J.K. Simmons, the veteran character actor whose career seems to be taking off thanks to his great performance in Whiplash, will host, which should be interesting. D’Angelo’s live show is the sort of thing people speak of in hushed tones. And even if SNL, with its notoriously shitty sound, is maybe not the ideal way to witness the live show, it’s something.
