Watch Kanye West perform his new track Wolves at SNL 40

New, 64 comments

Only days after debuting his new track "Wolves" at New York Fashion Week, Kanye West performed the song during Sunday night's SNL 40 celebration, marking the first time he performed the track live. The stripped-down performance came after he laid flat on his back onstage to sing "Jesus Walks" and later his other new single "Only One." Singer Sia and fellow Chicago rapper Vic Mensa joined him onstage during the song.

There was plenty of debate during and after the set as to whether or not the performance was inspired or just bizarre, especially as compared to the more straightforward acts of the night like Paul McCartney, Paul Simon, and even Miley Cyrus. Whatever the audience's opinion, there was really nothing like it all night.
