News: Kanye West To Perform On SNL, New Material?


Saturday Night Live will conclude its 38th season on May 18th, and has announced the guest performers for the finale. Longtime fan-favorite cast member Kristen Wiig is set to host while Vampire Weekend will perform, supporting their upcoming Modern Vampires of the City. Normally, there is only one musical guest but for the finale they’re going big. Not many bigger names in the music business than Kanye West at the moment, especially during times like these.

West is expected to release his follow up to highly acclaimed My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy this year. However, there have been little to no details released on the album as of yet. This seems like the perfect place to drop an album title, or better yet, the first glimpse at new material.

I’m really excited for the episode, loving the show, Wiig and anticipating Vampire Weekend’s best album this year (you can read Rachel’s feature on it here). You can watch Kanye West’s SNL performance of “Power” below.
