Watch Miguel Perform on ‘Saturday Night Live’
Last year, neo soul singer Miguel released one of the best R&B albums of the decade, 'Kaleidoscope Dream.' Last night, he dropped by 'Saturday Night Live' and performed two songs from the record.
While it seemed like everyone else was at Coachella this weekend, the 27-year-old singer-songwriter channeled R&B legends Marvin Gaye and Prince during, respectively, 'Adorn' and 'How Many Drinks?' You can watch videos of both songs below.
Leading a full live band, Miguel delivered leaner versions of 'Kaleidoscope Dream''s two singles than those found on the album. They sounded way tougher, emphasizing their rock-influenced grit. We particularly liked Miguel's rock-star exit after 'How Many Drinks?'
The episode itself, hosted by an unfunny Vince Vaughn, was pretty terrible. The one semi-highlight was a 'History of Punk' skit in which a '70s-era punk band, clearly inspired by the Sex Pistols, actually had some nice words to say about the late Margaret Thatcher. You can watch the clip here. But watch Miguel first. He was way better.
