As fans impatiently awaited the arrival of his new album, ‘Yandhi,’ rapper Kanye West took to ‘SNL’s season 44 premiere (as a last minute replacement for previously scheduled musical guest, Ariana Grande) to showcase some cuts from the new LP.
The first performance, a live rendition of the emcee’s latest top 10 hit, ‘I Love It,’ came as a meme-tastic, awesomely bad showing alongside the tune’s co-star, Lil Pump. Dressed as a bottle of Perrier (while Pump donned a costume reminiscent of a Fiji water bottle), the two danced and pranced their way into ongoing ridicule on Twitter as fans and detractors alike roasted the duo for the…erm…interesting performance.
Dropping ahead of the night’s performance with Teyana Taylor and Kid Cudi respectively, look inside to see all of ‘Ye’s showings from the season premiere of #SNL:

I’ve been a Kanye West fan for nearly 15 years and that was one of the biggest live performance disasters I’ve ever seen. This man was dressed as a Perrier bottle. Wow. #SNL #SNLPremiere #Ye pic.twitter.com/FOjmzLllAF
