Miguel Rocks ‘Saturday Night Live’

2013 has been good to Miguel. After winning a Grammy and touring with Alicia Keys, the R&B crooner made his “Saturday Night Live” debut this weekend.

Following an introduction from host Vince Vaughn, he breathed new life into his Kaleidoscope Dream cuts. First up, he performed a rocking rendition of his latest single “How Many Drinks?” with his guitarist and band, even dropping the mic at the end like a true rock star. He returned later in the show, clad in a leather motorcycle jacket, to put a new spin on his chart-topping hit “Adorn.”

His thrilling performance won praise from Mariah Carey, who tweeted, “slam dunk. R&B is alive!”

Miguel will wrap the U.S. leg of Alicia’s “Set the World on Fire” tour on April 18 in Chicago before traveling to Europe.

Watch him rock 30 Rock.
