        Lyndsey Shookus’s mouth moves, her eyes blink, but everything else stays so still. It’s unnerving.

          The amount of Foo Fighters in this video is GREAT. I appreciate everything that goes on at SNL. The true unsung heros of television right here.

            It's a shame that the music acts by and large in the last several year are top 40 pop and rap / hip hop acts.

            There are a lot of other styles of music out there that people should hear besides top 40 mainstream shit.

            SNL should try to ensure at least a third of the musical guests are new and unheard of acts. One third being the big name legacy acts that have multiple albums/years of quality, and one third being the the current hot acts.

              I love these! But as a viewer I prefer the unique set designs versus plain SNL stage. I think one of the greatest things about that stage is it can be changed for so many artists

                  If only those Kanye West ballerina performances were on YouTube. I really want to watch them again.

                      Kudos to you guys! I've watched SNL for over 40 years, ever since I was a kid. I'd usually sneak out of bed, and would try to keep the volume down on the big TV in our living room because I was supposed to be asleep, for one, and not watching at all, for another. I was always looking to see who the musical guest was. SNL is how I first heard of Paul Simon.

                      I remember the Bowie performance; I was 9. I didn't quite know who he was then, just that the whole thing was "weird". It took me until seeing it again as an adult fan to realize what Bowie pulled (out) at the end of the "Boys Keep Swinging" number. When I'd seen it as a kid, I thought he was just making the puppet dance. HA! I remember the first Prince appearance, also, and all the kids at school that Monday were like, "What *is* that guy?!"

                      Keep up the great work! And bring on Anderson .Paak again!

                        Sad that so many of today’s music guests are crap.

                            Fishbone, easily, has one of the best performances on SNL. Their energy is insane!

                                  Remember that performance of "Rocking in the Free World" by Neil Young? Remember that performance of "Radio Radio" by Elvis Costello? Remember that performance of "Bastards of Young" by the Replacements? Remember that performance of "Chasing Pavements" by Adele? I do, and SO many more. Thank you for all the musical inspiration over the years. Even during SNL's so-called 'bad years' there was never a dip in the musical guests.

                                          Jessie J’s performance of “Momma knows best”. I never heard of her until she performed on SNL. Youtube it, it’s awesome.

                                            Back in the early days it was great, really cutting edge. Now its too corporate, they don't take chances anymore

                                                Very few musical acts that debuted on SNL ever went anywhere. Most have been one hit wonders.

                                                    Realistically, I usually leave the room and check my email during the music break, which is usually shitty, and come back for the news segment, which is usually good. Then I shut the show off and go to bed.

                                                                                          • Derick Snow
