Videos of the Week December 23rd

What an entertaining week of live performances! First off, apologies if you caught SNL last week because it was dominated by Chance the Rapper...who then dominated the top five this week. Thanks to SNL, we got glimpses of a few recent singles, Finish Line and Drown, from The Coloring Book. Oh and who could forget the SNL holiday time capsule track, Jingle Barack? Pay attention to the lyrics, there's plenty of cultural and political references like gay marriage, marijuana legalization, Trump, etc. My guess is, when we watch that in about a decade, it will inspire quite a bit of nostalgia.

Before I move on from performances, I'd be remiss not to mention Weeknd's live debut of Sidewalks with Kendrick Lamar. If you're curious whether people are digging his new music, press play on that one and witness everyone singing along. Switching gears, Fallon debuted a pretty futuristic, Tilt Brush version of Pictionary this week with guests Michael Che (of SNL) and Andrew Rannells. I'm not sure whether to be amazed or freaked out that a whole studio audience would be watching you create drawings out of thin air as if they were in your head. Definitely a cool concept that takes communication to another level, but a bit hard to wrap your head around performance wise. Finishing off this week's top five was my favorite video of the week. Evidently there's a three year old kid named Lethan who is a proud member of the Mellogang. A few weeks back, Marshmello posted a video of Lethan dancing to his music. So, being an awesome person, he surprised Lethan in a hotel room where they both got to wild out to Alone together. Priceless is the best I got, but it's fitting for the holiday season...#Mellogang
