Solange Wows in Her First SNL Performance

Solange had all the spotlight on Saturday night.

Continuing the support behind her critically-acclaimed third studio album, A Seat At The Table, the R&B singer-songwriter appeared on “Saturday Night Live (SNL),” and performed two songs from the project.

Solange, who released the No. 1 album on Sept. 30, was introduced by host Benedict Cumberbatch before she wowed viewers with performances of “Cranes In The Sky” and “Don’t Touch My Hair,” which included a feature from singer Sampha.

Dressed in a sparkly headpiece and beaded shirt, Solo first delivered a soothing rendition of her popular single, “Cranes In The Sky.”

For her second performance, the diva in making changed into white pants and brought out Sampha for a gripping performance of “Don’t Touch My Hair”; she even recreated the iconic dance moves she delivered in the song’s music video.

To top the night off, Solange’s mother, Tina Lawson, and big sister Beyoncé were both backstage cheering her on. “Soo proud of my baby on SNL. Right now,” said Tina.
