Kanye West Debuts “Wolves” on ‘SNL’ With Sia, Vic Mensa

Kanye West has kept fans guessing about what to expect from his currently untitled seventh studio album, but last night audiences around the globe got their first taste of what the album holds in store when Yeezus performed the opening track as part of Saturday Night Live‘s 40th anniversary.

Accompanied by Sia and Vic Mensa, who joined the performance after West opened by lying on his back through renditions of both “Jesus Walks” and “Only One,” Kanye West performed his new single “Wolves” for the first time last night. It’s a brooding track, built on what feels like …

‘Saturday Night Live’ to Host Epic 40-Year Anniversary Show

Some of you may have noticed that during last night’s Super Bowl XLIX showdown between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks two little ads appeared for what may be one of the biggest moments in live television this year.

A roster of familiar names flew by the screen as SNL alumni, iconic actors and music giants the likes of Bill Murray, Paul McCartney, Adam Sandler, Justin Timberlake, Jack Nicholson, Kanye West, Eddie Murphy, Taylor Swift and several more were announced for the upcoming …

Iggy Azalea Delivers Another Potential Hit With “Beg For It”

Iggy Azalea has her detractors, but the majority of music fans seem to believe the young emcee is fancy enough to have earned their love. This week, Iggy delivered yet again when she shared a new song called “Beg For It,” and if we had to guess we’d say it might be your new favorite song.

Featuring the kind of minimalist production that has accompanied all of her biggest hits, “Beg For It” finds Iggy once again flexing her ego and wordplay against thick bass. She knows she is a powerful young woman and she’s not going to let anyone …

Fred Armisen Forms Supergroup With The Damned, Stray Cats, Guns N’ Roses Members

SNL alum and Late Night band leader Fred Armisen has just formed the most ridiculous supergroup; he’s teaming up with members of Guns N’ Roses, The Stray Cats, The Damned, The Living End, and The Alarm to create a giant new band called Dead Men Walking. Just wait — the ridiculousness doesn’t stop there.

The group–which is boasts Guns’ Duff McKagan, The Cats’ Slim Jim Phantom, Mike Peters of The Alarm, The Living End’s Chris Cheney, and The Damned’s Captain Sensible–will be playing original material and covers live on September 14 at the Troubadour in Los Angeles with a bunch …

Will Forte is All Alone in ‘The Last Man on Earth’ Trailer

It looks like Fox is ready to get weird. The TV station will be picking up a new comedy series called The Last Man on Earth later this year which stars Will Forte and whose pilot was directed by the guys behind The Lego Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Seth Cohen is also an executive producer. The show follows Phil Miller (Forte) who is literally the last man on Earth… making Forte the only star of the show. Yes, really.

Considering there’s only so much one person can do, we’ll see how this show pans out. Forte is, …

Drake to Host First ‘Saturday Night Live’ Episode of 2014

He started from the bottom, and now he’s definitely at the top. Actor-turned-rapper Drake will be heading back to Saturday Night Live again, but this time as a host.

When he was the musical guest for the first time in 2011, Drake kept begging to be in a skit until finally he was cast as a werewolf who would steal candy from kids on Halloween. So now for the first episode of SNL in the new year, Drake will be both the host and musical guest. Looks like he can stand alongside Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, and Lady Gaga as …

One Direction and Anchorman 2 SNL

One Direction Performs With Cast of ‘Anchorman 2′ on ‘SNL’

Saturday Night Live always gets huge artists to perform on the show, and last night’s musical guest was no exception. One Direction stopped by and plenty of jokes were made throughout the night regarding the band’s huge status thanks to host Paul Rudd.

In his opening monologue, Rudd brought together his Anchorman 2 group–Will Ferrell, Steve Carell, and David Koechner–with a very well-dressed One Direction to form Nine Direction. They covered Starland Vocal Band‘s “Afternoon Delight” together and, might I say, their harmonies were impeccable.

One Direction also performed an understated version of “Story Of My Life” alongside “Through The …

Eminem and Janelle Monáe to Perform on ‘SNL’

Saturday Night Live started off their new season strong by bringing Arcade Fire on board as the musical guest. It seems they’re keeping things rolling, music-wise, because Eminem and Janelle Monáe are now scheduled to be musical guests this year as well.

Eminem will release his new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, on November 5, and he will most likely be performing material off of it three days prior when he is the SNL musical guest on November 2. This will be the rapper’s sixth time appearing on Saturday Night Live, this time joined by host Kerry Washington. …

Miley Cyrus Performs Two Songs, Pokes Fun At Government Shutdown On ‘Saturday Night Live’

There seems to be no end in sight for the reign of Miley Cyrus.

Serving as both host and musical guest just days after making headlines for her raciest photo spread to date, Miley Cyrus took the stage at Rockefeller Plaza last night to appear on Saturday Night Live. The pop sensation did a passable job by all accounts, and this morning the show’s best moments are making their way around the net.

Starting with the performances, Miley took the obvious and delivered live renditions of “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop” on the long-running sketch show. The …

Arcade Fire Will Perform a Special Concert After SNL

Saturday Night Live will start up again this upcoming Saturday with Tina Fey hosting and Arcade Fire taking the musical guest spot. People are already buzzing with excitement about the combination of the two, but now there’s even more to look forward to. After SNL finishes, Arcade Fire will give a 30-minute special concert that NBC will air in its entirety.

If this sounds familiar, that’s because rumors about said special concert have been floating around for a while now. Today, however, the band’s booking agency, Billions, finally confirmed. Arcade Fire will be releasing their new album, Reflektor, …

Kevin Nealon’s new Showtime special, “Whelmed…But Not Overly”, is a mildly painful journey through the comedian’s pseudo-misogynistic and wildly unfocused mind as he takes the listener through a fast-paced, frantic hour of comedy.…
