If you are not a Prince fan, you will be after watching Prince make history on Saturday Night Live (SNL) tonight. I hope you will tune in to witness this history-making moment of an unprecendented 8-minute jam session without commercials–a first in SNL’s 40-year history. Most music performances are broken up into two segments, but with the talent of Prince, SNL will roll out the purple carpet for His Majesty, Prince. Tonight’s performance will also mark Prince’s return to the Saturday Night Live stage after 8 years. His last performance was on February 4, 2006. Prince’s all-female band, 3RDEYEGIRL, will join him on stage for a fiery, jam session that will be filled with classics and new selections. Get ready to hear music from his new solo album, ART OFFICIAL AGE and his album featuring 3RDEYEGIRL, PLECTRUMELECTRUM. Both albums debuted in the Top 10 at the same time! These albums also marks Prince return to his original music label, Warner Bros. Records. If you’ve been to a Prince performance, you know that no two performances are the same. I saw him a few years ago and when I talked to other friends who went on different dates, it was different songs, but the same fabulous party. Prince is an artist that continues to evolve and can make a song from the past sound like it was created yesterday.
Not only will SNL features the talents of Prince, comedian Chris Rock and past SNL cast member will return as host of SNL after 18 years. Rock personally requested Prince as the music performer for his hosting night. With the musical talent of Prince and the comedic talent of Prince the SNL stage will be on FIRE by the end of the night. I cannot wait! See u there. . .
