It ain't easy being green -- unless you're Taylor Swift playing a technicolor piano on Saturday Night Live.
No stranger to the SNL stage, Swift -- who made her first appearance on the late night mainstay in 2009, and returned for her fifth round on Saturday (Oct. 5) -- opted for a simple yet stunning starter. From her turtleneck to her hoop earrings to the piano and the stage behind her, everything popped in various shades of spearmint as she eased into slow burn of "Lover," the title-track from her latest No. 1 album.
Sheets of music were suspended as if they were frozen mid-twirl in the air around the piano, and the performance threw to the whimsy and pops of color from the romantic music video while keeping things sweet and spare -- but just as potent as the original.
