Kanye West Performs “Power” and “Runaway” on Saturday Night Live

Kanye West brought his energy and his new signature red suit as he performed his new album’s debut single “Power” last night (Sat. Oct 2) on Saturday Night Live! The rapper mimicked the music video for the song by performing in front of an all-white back-drop with dozens of dancing women dressed in white surrounding him. Kanye even kept it friendly by changing a line in the song where he disses SNL. Now that’s what we call improvisation!

‘Ye also took the stage a second time during the evening to perform his new album’s second single “Runaway” along with Pusha T who guests on the track, which he premiered less than a month ago at this year’s VMAs.

Both “Power” and “Runaway” come from Kanye West’s highly anticipated (and still untitled) new album, due in stores November 22nd. Peep the performances below:

“POWER”

“RUNAWAY”

    Kanye is a no talent, can’t sing, goofy loser

  • Jay-g

    Kanye is a definite talent, but I’m just mad he’s decided to bring back the Eddie Murphy leather. Please leave it in the past.

  • victor

    kanye west is very very talented …it’s just the decisions he’s made that made him look bad

  • lex

    He is a talentless idiot. And he is lip syncing here. Guess he is clever enough not to repeat the hysterically bad performance from the last time he was on SNL. Haha

    Taking into consideration that I am an older listener / viewer, I’ve never seen anyone with as little singing talent as Kanye have the opportunity to perform on prime television. It was actually painfull to watch.

    If this is what is considered talent, we’re all delusional.

    @lex:
    How is he lip syncing?
    You clearly did not watch!

    Great performance!

    I like Kanye West. He’s definitely one of the best acts on SNL. This is one of his best. I’m glad to see him doing well. I can’t wait until the 5th CD comes out next month.
