Olivia Rodrigo, from the piano to destroying cakes on Saturday Night Live

Olivia Rodrigo was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Adam Driver has been in charge of presenting her performance, which consisted of a completely piano version of ‘Vampire’, played by herself; and in ‘All-American Bitch’.

Olivia thus resumes the promotion of ‘GUTS’, after ‘Bad Idea, Right?’ and ‘Get Him Back’ have not charted as much as ‘Vampire’, and that in recent weeks the focus has been on a ballad off the album. We are referring to ‘Can’t Catch Me Now’, from the soundtrack of ‘The Hunger Games’, which has managed to climb to number 12 in the United Kingdom and number 56 in the United States.

The grand presentation of ‘All-American Bitch’ was made starting from a table of cakes, and then exploring her grunge vein. The singer ended up stepping on cakes and rubbing them in her face.

With 1.5 million copies sold in 2023 according to Mediatraffic estimates, ‘GUTS’ is one of the best-selling albums of the year worldwide, although it is true that the 9 million sold by his debut ‘SOUR’ seem too far away. . We’ll see if with Christmas, the Grammy nominations, the concerts and the promo that may await in 2024, he cuts something back.
