The Chainsmokers went live last Saturday Night in New York. And it’s a big deal for this side of the music genre spectrum as no other dance music act has ever performed on SNL before.
And before your mind even goes there, it was nothing like their other ‘live’ fiasco at American Idol a couple years ago. Instead of doing the regular thing with one guy standing behind the deck and hitting play and the other on the mike they went into a totally different direction.
There were 2 keyboardists, Matt Macguire on the drums, Alex running the synth and the keys while Drew singing, obviously. They performed Paris and Break Up Every Night. Check out the performance below.
