It's rare to catch an episode of Saturday Night Live
where the musical guest's two songs outperform the entire night's collection of sketches, but as the comedic relief continues its weekly wane, we continue to long for the songs. This week's episode was hosted by Adam Levine who clearly should have stuck to the musical slot, as he took full advantage of every syllable spelt on the cue cards. Offering tunes was Kendrick Lamar
, whose unlively performance still provided a pleasant break from his "comedic" counterpart's awkwardness.
Kendrick Lamar - "Swimming Pools"
Kendrick Lamar - "Poetic Justice"
Watch below if you're interested in seeing Adam Levine read some cue cards.
Adam and Janet
The highlight of the episode was the always great digital short, with special guests Danny McBride and Kendrick Lamar.
