This week’s Saturday Night Live played host to The National, who have quite frankly been popping up just about everywhere between their various television stints, and getting ready to embark on their North American tour. But when they took the stage this past Saturday night to perform “Graceless,” “I Need My Girl,” and “Trouble Will Find Me,” there was no question how after nearly a year since the release of their last album, Trouble Will Find Me, they’re still going strong. You can check out the performances below, and catch the band on tour this April with Warpaint and Portugal. The Man. (more…)
It wasn’t that long ago that we were announcing HAIM‘s 2014 North American tour dates. But for the Los Angeles based trio, this past weekend provided another landmark event ” their debut on Saturday Night Live. The episode saw the band performing “The Wire” before kicking it up a notch with “Don’t Save Me” and finally appearing in a clever, albeit slightly odd sketch featuring The Outfield’s “I Don’t Wanna Lose Your Love Tonight,” with Hunger Games star and SNL host, Josh Hutcherson. Check out both performances along with the sketch right here.
For the ladies of HAIM, 2013 has been a pretty wild ride. Exploding onto the scene earlier in the year with their debut release, Days Are Gone, the trio has just announced a North American tour that runs from April to May of 2014. The 17-city tour will see stops in San Francisco, Nashville, Boston, and Minneapolis, before finishing up in Vancouver on May 24. Tickets go on sale November 22 but you can catch the band this weekend on Saturday Night Live, hosted by Josh Hutcherson. Check out dates below. (more…)
Pop superstar Justin Timberlake to the promotional efforts for his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience to the stage of Saturday Night Live over the weekend and this morning we have the performances streaming right here on OurStage!
Filling in as both host and musical guest, Timberlake performed “Suit & Tie” and new song “Mirrors” on the historical New York soundstage. Both renditions went off without a hitch, and if you ask us Timberlake once again proved why he’s the best in the business. You can view his performances below. (more…)
Between the recent success of Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men, and now Denver-based act, The Lumineers, folk music has been making some pretty big waves lately. And with reason – after all, there’s something undeniably catchy and perhaps even endearing about tracks like The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey.”
Performing last weekend on the Saturday Night Live stage at NBC’s famed studio 8H, The Lumineers performed “Ho Hey,” along with a new track called, “Stubborn Love.” As catchy as their previous hit (dare we say more so?), it’s just a matter of time before you’ll hear “Stubborn Love” circulating radio stations across the nation. You can check out both performances right here.
If you like The Lumineers check out OurStage artist Darlingside.

From all we’ve seen and heard of fun., their live performances kill it. When it was announced they’d be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live for Nov. 3, we couldn’t wait. Their song choices? You guessed it: Radio success Some Nights, along with the newly released music video track, Carry On.
Although fun. kept the energy high with both performances, vocals on Some Nights, fell flat in sections and those used to chanting along with the recorded sound might be in for a bit of a shock. Carry On faired much better, with strong vocals and stellar performances by the entire band, ending their SNL debut on a high note.
You can check out both performances right here.
