EDM duo The Chainsmokers will make their first appearance as musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend, one day after releasing their debut full-length album Memories…Do Not Open on Friday.
Here are four things we hope to see from The Chainsmokers’ episode of SNL, which will be hosted by Louis C.K.
1. The TV debut of a new Memories song.
The duo’s new album features 12 songs, and we’d love to see at least one of them played live for the first time on the show.
2. A Chris Martin guest appearance.
Hey, Coldplay showed up for The Chainsmokers’ Brit Awards performance back in February and their iHeartRadio Music Awards set last month. Now that “Something Just Like This” has reached No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, maybe frontman Chris Martin will make a surprise appearance with Drew and Alex on Saturday night?
3. Winning over Louis C.K. as a fan.
In a promo video for their appearance, The Chainsmokers and Louis C.K. reveal that the SNL host is not a fan of the duo — but hopefully he’ll change his mind by the end of the episode.
4. A Chainsmokers skit with the SNL cast.
Reminiscent of a Michael Bublé sketch from a few years ago, the collaborative pair could team up with some fellow music superstars — aka the cast doing their best musician impressions — for a Chainsmokers “duets” album.
