Harry Styles Brings New Music And Mick Jagger Swagger To “Saturday Night Live”

Harry Styles Performs New Music On Saturday Night LiveHarry Styles made his grand return as a solo artist to the “Saturday Night Live” set this weekend. The former One Direction member helped host Jimmy Fallon open the show with a short David Bowie tribute, which was a sign of things to come for the rest of the episode.

Harry went back in time to the ’70s  to impersonate Mick Jagger in a “Family Feud” sketch. “Solo? Why would anyone in a successful band go solo?,” he teased the crowd as Jagger. “That is insane.”

He later pulled inspiration from his “Dunkirk” experience to play a prisoner in a civil war soldier skit.

Harry, of course, used “Sign of the Times” as the song for his debut solo performance on Saturday night’s show. For his second performance of the night, Harry premiered “Ever Since New York” with chilling a cappella harmonies and repetitive lyrics. Fans were quick to assume the song’s title signaled a response to Taylor Swift’s “Welcome to New York,” but the vaguely introspective lyrics don’t provide enough evidence to support the claim.

Check out Harry’s performances and sketches below.

Harry Styles Promises A Snapping Good Time During His Solo “SNL” Debut

Harry Styles SNL promoHarry Styles’ “Saturday Night Live” promo is out and it is definitely not like the others. As the first member of One Direction to perform on the late night show solo, the singer will be in good company as “SNL” alum Jimmy Fallon returns to host the first-ever coast-to-coast episode.

In the first promo video, the duo tries to be the center of attention as both step in front of each other while introducing themselves. In one video, the singer couldn’t contain his laughter while snapping his way towards the camera. This Saturday, Harry is expected to not only perform his single “Sign Of the Times” for the first time on television, but he will also debut a new song.

Harry Styles Hasn’t Released A Solo Single Yet, But He Has Booked “Saturday Night Live”

Harry Styles Hasn't Released A Solo Single Yet, But He Has Booked Saturday Night LiveHarry Styles won’t be dropping a solo single until April 7. But being a part of the world’s biggest boy band apparently means gigs will roll in whether or not the music is out. That might be how Harry booked a spot as the musical guest on an upcoming episode of “Saturday Night Live.”

Harry will join the show April 15, just a week after his single drops. It’ll be Harry’s solo debut on TV, but the stage is familiar territory as One Direction has played the late night sketch show three times in the past. Jimmy Fallon is hosting Harry’s episode.

The booking does raise a big question. The program’s musical guests typically perform two songs throughout an episode. Harry hasn’t said anything about a second song, but his cryptic promotions haven’t limited the release to a single track, either.

Do you think Harry has a second track coming out April 7?

Kristen Stewart Hosts Her First And Perhaps Last “Saturday Night Live”

Kristen Stewart on SNL-1Kristen Stewart hosted “Saturday Night Live” Saturday night and started the show by making fun of how obsessed President Donald Trump was with her after she and Robert Pattinson broke up in 2012.

“The president is not a huge fan of me, but that is so OK. And, Donald, if you didn’t like me, then you’re really probably not going to like me now ’cause I’m hosting ‘SNL’ and I’m like, so gay, dude,” she said. However, that wasn’t the biggest jaw-dropping moment. The actress accidentally dropped the F-word on live television.

“We’ve got a great show and I totally care that I’m here ’cause it’s the coolest fucking thing that I’ve… Oop,” she said. “Oh my god, and I’m sorry, and musical guest Alessia Cara is also here. And I’ll never come back.”

Watch Kristen’s first and possibly last opening monologue and more of her “SNL” skits below.
