Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's break-up and the surprise drop of the break-up anthem it inspired may have been major talking points leading up to last night's episode of Saturday Night Live (Nov. 3), but Maggie Rogers held her own for her SNL debut as this week's musical guest.   

Rogers is preparing to release her next full-length -- the follow-up to 2017's EP, Now That the Light Is Fading, which delivered her breakthrough single, "Alaska" -- in 2019, but Saturday night turned out to be the perfect place to try out the new material a little on the early side.

"Light On" and "Fallingwater," two tracks from the forthcoming LP, had Rogers belting at the top of her register (on the latter tune especially). After warming up with "Light On," she, in bare feet and an ethereal scarlet tunic, made use of Studio 8H's stage in its entirety to close her second performance on an uplifting note.
