“Saturday Night Live” will be treading once again in dangerous waters tonight. No one is worried about the performance of tonight’s host, Zooey Deschanel, but musical guest Karmin could prove to be another Lana Del Rey.
SNL was criticized for choosing Lana Del Rey as its musical guest last week because the “Videogame” singer had limited on stage experience. Lana Del Rey’s performance was called the worst in the history of SNL. (You can see her performance here.) Tonight, Karmin will take the stage under similar conditions.
Last year Karmin was still riding a wave of internet stardom. The duo, comprised of Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan, have done a series of internet videos and are currently working on their debut album.
“We’ve been working with some of the top producers of the world. We recorded close to 50 songs, so we’re trying to get that list down to album size.”
Do you think Karmin will crash and burn on SNL tonight? Will they top Del Rey as the worst musical act in SNL history?
Here’s Karmin singing “Crash Your Party.”
If Karmin gives a lackluster performance tonight, SNL fans should rest assured that the comically cute Zooey Deschanel is hosting the show. Deschanel, who has starred in movies like “Elf,” “500 Days of Summer,” and currently has her own show “New Girl,” should bring the funny to the show tonight.
“I think the cast is so strong right now. It’s really great to be here right now. This will definitely be a highlight of my life. For sure, (I’m crossing it off) the bucket list.”
Here’s an SNL promo featuring Zooey Deschanel.
Do you think Zooey Deschanel will do a good job hosting “Saturday Night Live?” Will Karmin be the worst performance in SNL history?
