Maggie Rogers was slammed by some Twitter users after her performance on ‘SNL’! Watch her performance of ‘Light On’ here!
Maggie Rogers had her first appearance as a musical guest on Saturday Night Live, and some felt she was a little bit… off-pitch in her rendition of “Light On”. One fan @DougSchouten wrote, “Just a bit flat….. Maggie Rogers. Also, is this Christian music? #snl.” Another fan @MariannoPinto2 felt that she turned her performance around, tweeting, “She did NOT crush it…. she picked it up but had a very shaky start.” @RThomas1 wrote, “Flat as a board.” @GoalieMumm tweeted, “Her singing was unfortunately almost as bad as her style.”
Meanwhile @SolveigMusic came to her defense and argued her monitors were off, writing, “Feeling bad for Maggie Rogers tonight. 1/4 flat on first verse, but fine pitch for the rest of her song. Clearly talented. Cool 90s vibe. Monitors off in the beginning, @nbcsnl ?” And despite some haters, there were those who thought she killed it. Comedian Ben Schwartz tweeted, “Oooooo @maggierogers absolutely slayed @nbcsnl last night. Well done Maggie!!! Keep kicking butt!!!” Twitter user @Mattahearn wrote, “I’d like to welcome those of you who just discovered how great Maggie Rogers is on SNL.”
Watch her whole performance below! Previously, Paul Simon delivered an interesting performance of “Can’t Run But” when Seth Meyers was hosting the variety show. Instead of using his go-to acoustic guitar, Simon utilized an orchestra instead. The end effect was a powerful performance that was had a real, jazzy feel to it.
And of course, who could forget Kanye West’s controversial appearance on SNL? Before he went on a pro-Trump rant he decided to perform his hit “I Love It” while dressed up as water bottle.
