To close out the season of SNL last night, Rihanna was the finale’s musical guest and performed her 2 current singles off her upcoming album, R8 — “American Oxygen” and “BBHMM”. In case you missed Ri-Ri’s songs and style choices (diggin’ the track suit and long red hair), press play below.
The SNL season finale is set to be an A-list affair as comedian Louis CK is the host and Rihanna, the musical guest. Here’s their quick couple of promos for Saturday’s show wherein Louis CK represents all of the male population at one point in grammar school, right?
What will the fiery red-haired Rihanna perform? BBHMM is a given, but will she premiere an all-new song or go with “American Oxygen”?

Last night, Wiz Khalifa was the musical guest on SNL that didn’t have many viewers even with Scarlett Johansson hosting as well. After all, it ran during last night’s Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. SNL was aware of this and the cold open was a “pirated” version of the fight live. View that neat take and Wiz performing his new #1 “See You Again” and “We Dem Boyz” below.
I love SNL promos and this week’s for host Scarlett Johansson and musical guest Wiz Khalifa are about as awkward and random as you can predict. Especially when Cecily Strong, fresh off her awesome performance at the White House Correspondent’s Dinner, is involved as well.
Looks like SNL will definitely be worth watching (on DVR after Mayweather/Pacquiao).
If I told you a week ago, Vic Mensa was going to be on SNL 40…
But yeah, wow. Amazing look for the young Vic as Kanye puts him on with a performance of track 01 — “Wolves”, accompanied by Vic and Sia. It was prefaced by “Jesus Walks” and “Only One” too. I’ll let the medley develop for you naturally down below, just know it’s definitely interesting… and IMHO, pretty cool. Can’t wait to hear more of “Wolves”.
Coolest color-corrected contacts, ever?

SNL 40 related: There were a lot of quality moments and montages throughout but probably my favorite was the new digital short with Andy Samberg & Adam Sandler. Loved this.
SNL is celebrating 40 years on the air this month and it’s going all out for a reunion special with old cast mates and musical guests. Among the latter: Kanye West, Paul McCartney, and Justin Timberlake. The latter may not only perform musically but comedically too and the former 2 would probably perform “Only One”, wouldn’t you think?
Full guest list below and in the video above with “SNL 40” ironically airing on Sunday, February 15th.
Kanye West, Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Tom Hanks, Bill Murray, Jim Carrey, Will Ferrell, Robert De Niro, Adam Sandler, Jerry Seinfield, Mike Myers, Tina Fey, Jack Nicholson, Amy Poehler, Peyton Manning, Betty White, Maya Rudolph, Dana Carvey, Steve Martin, Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and more!
D’Angelo was last night’s SNL musical guest and he impressed in both of his performances ICYMI below. Plus, the still above says it all too. Black Messiah out now.
