Frank Ocean Performs on Saturday Night Live

The season premiere of ‘Saturday Night Live’ kicked off with a bang, featuring musical guests Frank Ocean and John Mayer. The chemistry between the performers is palpable and a lot of fun to watch, and they brought an intensity to the otherwise lighthearted show — but still didn’t take themselves too seriously.

In ‘Thinking About You,’ the stage was set to match the soft, understated tone of the track. Ocean sat on a stool with his eyes closed for the duration of the song, and even the usually spotlight-courting Mayer remained in shadows. It’s unclear whether Ocean performed like this out of nervousness (because it is live TV, which is scary to do — ask Lana Del Rey!) or just out of pure feeling.
