Kanye West was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this week and he performed Ultra Light Beams and High Lights from his new album The Life of Pablo. He had lots of guests to help him out. Although the much-anticipated Madison Square Garden Pablo debut was livestreamed online, this marked the first time West performed the tracks on TV. After the two performances, Kanye (who at this point looked like he was about to collapse from exhaustion) announced his album was available on Tidal and on his website.
First up, was High Lights with the help of Young Thug, The-Dream, Kelly Price and El DeBarge.
Kanye then filled the stage with gospel singers for his performance of Ultra Light Beams. And in that performance, Chance the Rapper ended up stealing the Kanye show for a bit.
