Watch Florence + the Machine Play ‘Ceremonials’ Tracks, Turkey-Themed Rap-Fusion Song on ‘SNL’
Florence + the Machine brought a choir (and of course a harp) to Saturday Night Live over the weekend for performances of two songs from the just-released Ceremonials: “Shake It Out” and “No Light, No Light.” It went much better than last time. And in the tradition of awkwardly determining whether musical guests have any comedic timing, SNL asked Florence Welch to sing a song from the New Jack Thanksgiving songbook as an artist named Flow Doubt. She delivered “Flow Diggity,” a tune about foot sex, like a seasoned pro. Fred Armisen wrapped the show with a bit called “The Bluejean Committee,” where host Jason Segel — the man responsible for the Muppets’ lackluster version of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” — rocked in a local band known for its Massachusetts-centric tunes. But not letting Nick Andopolis get back behind the drum set was a real missed opportunity.
