While Winter Storm Jonas smothered New York City in a historic blizzard, it wasn’t enough to cancel the Ronda Rousey-hosted episode of Saturday Night Live, which aired incident-free despite the shuttering of the city’s highways and mass transit. Eager to help New York thaw out of its frozen conditions was Selena Gomez, who heated up the Studio 8H stage and squeezed three of her Revival singles into her two musical guest spots.
First, the singer delivered a stripped-down medley of “Good for You” and “Same Old Love” that featured a circle of men snapping their fingers on beat. She next brought out some sizzling choreography for her second performance of the night – new single “Hands to Myself” – with Gomez joined on the stage’s inviting bed by a male and female partner who provided some hands-on dancing.
Following her SNL vist, Gomez thanked the long-running sketch comedy series for for making “a childhood dream come true.”
