Eminem Performed A Medley Of Three Of His Songs On 'Saturday Night Live' And Fans Loved It
| Last updated
Fans of Eminem might be getting slightly impatient with the rapper as he still hasn't revealed the date for his new album Revival, but, they were blown away by his medley of three songs when he appeared on Saturday Night Live yesterday.
Accompanied by an orchestra Eminem made a nine-minute performance, kicking off with his new track Walk on Water, which he recorded with Beyoncé but performed with Skylar Grey on SNL.
He then went on to sing Stan, with Skylar once again picking up the duet, and ending with Love The Way You Lie with Skylar absolutely nailing the parts previously sung by Rihanna.
You've got to give a lot of credit to Skylar for her amazing vocals here, it's no mean feat stepping in the shoes of Rihanna, Dido and Beyoncé, and she not only stepped up but smashed it.
Fans of Eminem loved the performance:

And were very happy to have the Real Slim Shady back and seemed pretty excited about his upcoming album:

Revival was widely reported to be released on Friday 17 November, but the speculation turned out to be bollocks and fans were left fuming. As yet there's no official date for the album, so we'll just have to wait and see, but after listening to that performance I properly can't wait.
