Clizbeats.com favorites Macklemore and Ryan Lewis stole the show as Kevin Hart’s musical guest on Saturday Night Live this past weekend. The duo took the stage with the support of a live horn section, and guest performers Wanz and Ray Dalton. First up was a live, high energy version of their history making chart topper, “Thrift Shop.” As we wrote in a previous article celebrating their hard earned success, “Thrift Shop” was the first independently released single to top the Hot 100 in 19 years, and is the first indie Hip Hop single to do it at all. When we watched them perform the hit this weekend, it was clear that celebration was the name of the game, and given their indie status, it’s for good reason. According to Billboard, the track has already sold over 3 million copies.

The second performance of the night was of their current single, “Can’t Hold Us” featuring Ray Dalton. Although it is just now heating up as a single, “Can’t Hold Us” has also found a path to earning power that’s supporting Hip Hop’s indie sensation. Microsoft gave the Macklemore momentum a shot in the arm when it uploaded an action filled and fast paced commercial for it’s Outlook.com on February 21st. The 30 second spot features “Can’t Hold Us” from start to finish. It really does a nice job cementing a Macklemore and Ryan Lewis track that is not “Thrift Shop”into the public eye.

As far as the “Can’t Hold Us” SNL performance, their celebratory mood was also evident. We couldn’t help but laugh and smile as we watched Ray Dalton join a hyped up Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, to energetically hop around the SNL stage. This was especially true when Macklemore jumped on Dalton’s back, and both of them continued to perform extremely well through out the whole thing. Check out the performances for yourself below. Cheers!
