boygenius has been the latest band invited to Saturday Night Live. The program, which celebrates its 49th edition this fall, featured Timothée Chalamet in the role of host.
boygenius’ visit to the set of Saturday Night Live was the first for Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker, but not for Phoebe Bridgers, who already acted alone two seasons ago. Bridgers made a few headlines after smashing her guitar live.
In his double musical performance, boygenius has presented two songs from his album ‘the record’, ‘not strong enough’ and ‘satanist’. boygenius’ costume has imitated the one worn by the Beatles during their first appearance on an American show, on the Ed Sullivan Show, in 1964.
Although, for costumes, the one boygenius wore later in a sketch, in which together with Chalamet they dressed up as Troye Sivan in the video clip for ‘Got Me Started’.
During the current season, Saturday Night Live has featured performances by Foo Fighters, Bad Bunny and Ice Spice. After the appearance of boygenius it will be the turn to close the season with Tate McRae, on November 18.
boygenius just received several Grammy nominations, including Record of the Year and Record of the Year.
