This was her first time performing “Love Me Harder” live on TV and it was nice to see The Weeknd join her for it. This is slated to be her next single released. Also The Weeknd totally outshines her on this performance. It feels like she’s really holding back and relying on the backing track for most of this song except for a few rifts.
I also loved how she started out with “Break Free” and was hoping that she would almost continue doing the whole song in this arrangement. Was it just me or did it seem like she was really tired when the song started picking up and she had to mildly dance along to it?

I missed last weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live featuring Louis C. K. and Sam Smith so when I saw that YouTube videos had been uploaded of his performance, I had to watch it first thing in the morning. Sam Smith is such a talented musician. I remember listening to him over a year ago and wondering where he would be a year later. It’s wonderful that his music has brought him onto Saturday Night Live. The first single “Stay With Me” isn’t one that I have heard very much. “Lay Me Down” though was my entire early 2013. I remember just listening to the song getting ready in the morning and shouting his lyrics at my computer screen.
You guys, I’m like a really good singer.

I missed SNL this weekend with Drake hosting, but was planning on catching up with it later. Here’s just a clip though to either a) hold you over or b) give you a taste of what Drake hosting was like. We think it’s pretty great.

It’s amazing that I was able to stay up for Paul Rudd hosting Saturday Night Live this past weekend, but I knew that with him on the show there were definitely going to be a few surprises. And I was right! Hello cast of Anchorman singing “Afternoon Delight” alongside One Direction. It was a pretty great episode and I found myself enjoying this skit above the most. Second most favorite part of the episode? One Direction performing “Story of My Life.” I finally get the appeal behind One Direction and Harry Styles. *Small swoon.

For the past two days, my co-worker Nadia has been asking me if I have started watching the television series “Scandal.” Truth? I’ve been meaning to…for the last three seasons! I can’t believe they are already that far along. Kerry Washington has been on my radar for years as a style icon and when I first learned that she would be in ABC’s “Scandal” I thought that it would be a show that I would catch on to. Now, I’m thinking I might have to start sooner than later because of these amazing cupcakes she sent to the staff at Saturday Night Live after her hosting gig. This is why we love her. For reference, the text on these cupcakes were from her parody of “What Does the Fox Say” from Saturday Night Live. If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to.

Is it weird for me to say that I actually was entertained by this? I thought it was funny! I missed Miley on Saturday Night Live last night, but am planning on watching it later this afternoon. How did she do?

I always like watching SNL and seeing the actors get a case of the giggles in the middle of a scene. It’s kind of refreshing to see them laughing with each other or… at each other.

It was revealed recently that Jimmy Fallon would replace Jay Leno on the Tonight Show when Leno retires in Spring 2014. But the question remained, who would fill Fallon’s shoes on Late Night? Well, it looks like that man is none other than Seth Meyers! Seth is by far one of my favorites from Saturday Night Live. I’m excited to see which direction he will take this show in, but I have no doubt at all that he won’t disappoint.

My favorite funnyman is apparently off the market! Former Saturday Night Live cast member Andy Samberg has proposed to musician Joanna Newsom. The two have been dating for five years. So cute – especially this photo!
