- Kanye West was the guest performer on the 44th season premiere of “Saturday Night Live.”
- For his first performance of the night, Kanye stepped out on stage dressed as a giant bottle of Perrier, performing “I Love It” with Lil Pump.
- Viewers were baffled. Some called it the worst musical performance they ever saw on the show.
The rapper came out on stage dressed as a Perrier bottle. He was joined by Lil Pump, who wore a nameless Fiji bottle suit.
Here’s a taste of what it looked like:

The two performed their song “I Love It,” which was released September 7. Adele Givens, who is also featured on the song, appeared in the background.
The entire performance was overshadowed by the two rappers dancing around the “SNL” stage in their costumes. Viewers didn’t know what to make of the scene.

Some are calling it the worst “SNL” performance they have ever seen.
Hey uhhhh Kanye West is so fucking cringey on SNL and I feel uncomfortable and I want an apology. That was hands down worst SNL performance.
