Kanye West and Sia, who covered her face again with a gigantic wig, performed their new song, ‘Wolves,’ for the very first time on TV during ‘Saturday Night Live’s’ 40th anniversary special on Feb. 15. It was both eery and mesmerizing!
After dissing Beck at the Grammy Awards and hosting his own fashion show during New York Fashion Week, Kanye West ended his week with a performance of “Wolves,” featuring Sia, on Saturday Night Live‘s 40th anniversary special.
Sia & Kanye West’s ‘SNL 40’ Performance — They Sing ‘Wolves’ On Stage
Before Kanye and Sia performed their new song, the rapper started his performance like we’d expect — lying on the floor and staring into the camera. (Kanye loves when all the attention is on him.) He opened his lengthy performance with an oldie, but a goodie — “Jesus Walks.” Later, he got up and started singing one of his newest hits, “Only One,” a song about his beautiful daughter, North West.
And just when we thought Kanye’s performance was coming to a close (not that we were hoping it was), Sia and Chicago rapper Vic Mensa crawled into the space the rapper was inhabiting — it was a cube that lit up like lightening.
We have to admit — we didn’t know it was Sia who was joining Kanye at first because she covered her face with a gigantic wig. But once they started singing “Wolves,” we realized it was her!
