Rock n Roll legend Mick Jagger hosted Saturday Night Live’s 37th-season finale last night and also appeared as the NBC show’s main musical guest. In addition to acting in a slew of quite funny skits, The Rolling Stones frontman also belted out some great performances of a handful of Stones classics throughout the show.
The classics “Start Me Up” and “Sympathy for the Devil,” were both in a skit that featured SNL cast members Fred Armisen and Bobby Moynihan doing comedic Jagger impersonations while “The Last Time” was performed live with Arcade Fire and the Strokes‘ bassist Nikolai Fraiture and “19th Nervous Breakdown” and “It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll (But I Like It)” with Foo Fighters. Jagger also wrote political blues rock song, “Tea Party,” which he performed with guitar great Jeff Beck. Check out some high lights below:
Arcade Fire and Jagger helped sending off SNL star Kristen Wiig, who made her final appearance on the show last night, by playing the Stones’ “She’s a Rainbow” and “Ruby Tuesday,” as SNL cast members as well as Steve Martin and Jon Hamm joined in.Just Published:
