Macklemore and Ryan Lewis performed energetic versions of ‘Can’t Hold Us’ and ‘Thrift Shop’ on the March 2 episode of ‘Saturday Night Live.’ Which performance was your favorite? Watch them both below and vote!

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis busted out on stage on Saturday Night Live, wearing appropriate threads and performing two of their most infectious hits from their 2012 album, The Heist. This was the funky bunch’s debut on the show, and if their two performances are any indication, we don’t think this will be their last visit to the NBC sketch comedy show.

The Seattle hip-hop duo brought on Ray Dalton for the vocals on “Can’t Hold Us” on March 2, before singing the biggest smash from their 2012 album.

Vocalist Wanz sang the hook on this tune, while the duo brought a high level of energy to this YouTube-aided chart-topping hit. The song, an ode to second-hand treasure, was also aided by an awesome horn section.

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, right? (HGTV’s Trash-To-Treasure should certainly consider using this song as their theme tune.) These guys gave an entertaining performance and totally rocked out on stage during the Kevin Hart hosted episode. We just had a hard time deciding which performance was our favorite!

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Which performance was your favorite? Watch and then vote below!
