Performances


vic mensa colbert

Vic Mensa delivered another powerful performance on late night TV last night. Taking time out from supporting JAY-Z on the 4:44 tour, the Roc Nation rookie performed “We Could Be Free” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. As if the song itself isn’t impactful enough, Vic was joined by backing singers and violinists wearing black clothing branded with “Police Brutality,” “Sexual Abuse,” “Mass Incarceration” and other social issues.

“We Could Be Free” is taken from Vic’s latest album, The Autobiography.

GoldLink-Brent-Shy-Fallon-1

GoldLink brought his hit single “Crew” to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. With a little help from Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy (as well as The Roots, of course), the D.C. rapper performed his now-platinum certified anthem with a unique twist courtesy of a customized phone mic. If “Crew” doesn’t win Record of the Year at the Grammys in January, we’re boycotting.

With his anticipated new album Revival expected to arrive soon, Eminem invaded Saturday Night Live this weekend. Hosted by Chance the Rapper, Slim Shady made his sixth appearance on the iconic sketch-comedy show, serving as the musical guest. Backed by a live band including violinists, the Detroit MC performed his new single “Walk On Water.” Beyoncé, who is featured on the song, was replaced by Skylar Grey seated behind the piano as Marshall Mathers delivered his powerful verses.

The set would quickly turn into a trip down memory lane, as Eminem and Skylar Grey delivered a medley of “Stan” and “Love the Way You Lie.” Watch Eminem’s return to SNL below.

Atlanta was definitely in the house on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night as Gucci Mane and Migos performed “I Get the Bag.” Joined by Quavo and Takeoff, Guwop treated the crowd to an intimate rendition of his Mr. Davis banger — and given Takeoff’s verse (“Momma said she saw me on Jimmy Kimmel”), what better place to do so.

The 2017 MTV Europe Music Awards took place on Sunday (Nov. 12), live from The SSE Arena in Wembley, London, United Kingdom. Hosted by Rita Ora, this year’s show kicked off with a bang as Eminem opened the EMAs by performing his new single “Walk On Water.” Beyoncé, who is featured on the song, couldn’t make the awards show as Skylar Grey stepped in Queen Bey’s place. Slim Shady would later go on to win “Best Hip-Hop” despite not having an album out since 2013.

Taking a break from hosting duties, Rita Ora delivered a vibrant set while performing her latest record “Your Song.” Travi$ Scott soared across the arena on top of his mechanical bird as he performed his platinum-single “Butterfly Effect,” while French Montana and Swae Lee came with a squad of dancers while doing their Billboard smash-hit “Unforgettable.”
