Machine Gun Kelly made his Saturday Night Live musical guest debut on the John Krasinski-hosted episode, performing two tracks from his recent album Tickets to My Downfall.
After opening with a raucous rendition of “My Ex’s Best Friend,” the rapper/punk rocker and his band returned to play the single “Lonely” on an unusually darkened stage.
The low-key “Lonely” performance, Kelly noted on Twitter, was a lucky accident: “10 seconds before we played ‘lonely’ on SNL, they came up and said the whole lighting board and set up we had for the performance crashed. so we just had a spot light and the music, that was the best thing that could’ve happened,” he wrote.
