Watch The Weeknd Perform "Starboy" featuring Daft Punk Live on SNL [VIDEO]
Everyone's talking about the season premiere of Saturday Night Live. For the first episode of the show's 42nd season, Alec Baldwin played Donald Trump for the first time in a sketch satirizing the first presidential debate. Kate McKinnon, who's known for her hilarious and spot-on Hillary Clinton impersonation, may have met her match... at least when it comes to making fun of presidential candidates. Although, Larry David does do a damn good Bernie Sanders. Host Margot Robbie also nailed it as Ivanka Trump.
The musical guest for the big season premiere created a buzz, too. Backed by a full live band, The Weeknd appeared on SNL and opened his performance with his hit single "Starboy" featuring Daft Punk.
Released on September 22 by XO and Republic Records, "Starboy" was co-written with Doc McKinney and Henry Walter and co-prodcued by McKinney and Cirkut, but the legendary French duo Daft Punk is credited for the majority of the production.
"Starboy" is already a Top 40 hit, and the official video was recently nominated for Best Video at the 2016 MTV European Music Awards.
Check out the first live performance of "Starboy," and let us know in the comments if it made you love the track even more or if you're still not feeling it.
"Starboy" is the first single and title track of The Weeknd's third studio album, which is expected to arrive November 25, 2016.
