'SNL' Welcomes Back Kanye West
Kanye West may have fired shots at “Saturday Night Live” and the whole cast on his single “POWER,” but they don’t seem to have hard feelings. In fact, ‘Ye has been tapped as the musical guest for the second episode of the new season.
The outspoken rapper will return to 30 Rockefeller Center on Oct. 2 for his fourth appearance, performing material from his fifth studio album, while “Breaking Bad’s” Bryan Cranston hosts.
Yeezy has guested on the show several times before, most notably flubbing the lyrics on his 2007 performance of “Champion” and “Everything I Am,” and mocking his awards show outbursts in a sketch.
Hitmaker Bruno Mars is scheduled to follow Kanye’s performance on the Oct. 9 episode, while Katy Perry will be the musical guest with host Amy Poehler on the Sept. 25 season premiere.
