Eminem Goes ‘Berzerk’ + More on ‘SNL’ [VIDEOS]
Eminem proved he still he has “it” and that he is fully back with his killer performance on ‘Saturday Night Live’ last night (Nov. 2).
Wearing a winter jacket with a fur collar and backed by bearded producer Rick Rubin, who manned the decks, Em first took the stage to rip through his latest smash ‘Berzerk,’ one of his best tracks in years. He was fully of energy when he performed the song on his sixth time as the ‘SNL’ musical guest. He also didn’t hit the stage until Rubin scratched through a few bars of Billy Squier’s ‘The Stroke,’ which is sampled in the song.
Mid-way through the perf, Em and his backing rappers searched the crowd, wearing expressions of shock and awe, as though they were looking for something and couldn’t find it. It was a surprise touch.
He came back to the stage later and performed ‘Survival’ with help from Skylar Grey. You can watch that perf below, which was also high energy. Grey looked totally street with her hair in a bun atop her head and a poufy jacket.
But make no mistake. Despite support from an ancillary cast, this was the, well, ‘The Eminem Show.’ P.S. We love cupcakes, too.
