This week’s Saturday Night Live was a star-studded affair! Host Pedro Pascal, Bowen Yang, and the Weekend Update team brought the laughs, while Coldplay, Jacob Collier, and the Jason Max Ferdinand Singers brought the music. Together, they created an unforgettable night of entertainment.
To kick things off, Coldplay performed their new-ish single “The Astronaut,” co-written by BTS’ Jin. The British band was joined by Jacob Collier and the Jason Max Ferdinand Singers, an uber-talented choir of Black women and men from across the country. The performance was nothing short of spectacular and the audience was mesmerized.
The band then followed up with a rendition of “Human Heart” off their ninth studio album Music of the Spheres. The song contains the highly original lyrics “boys don’t cry.” The performance of this song was also incredible and the audience was captivated.
But it was during the performance of their audience-favorite hit “Fix You” that Coldplay truly shined. Written by Chris Martin about the time he spent trying to comfort his ex Gwyneth Paltrow in the wake of her father’s passing, the song was made even more powerful by the choir of Black women and men from states across the country.
The combination of the song, the choir, and the British band created a stunning performance that left the audience in awe. If you missed it, you can watch it here:
