Everyone’s Talking about Dua Lipa’s SNL Performance

With the release of her sophomore album Future Nostalgia this year, Dua Lipa had one of the best years of any musician in the industry, despite having put out her album in March, right as COVID-19 was sweeping through the industry like a tornado. Now up for two Grammy awards for Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album, Dua Lipa is still promoting her album, making the rounds on various television and YouTube shows.

Most notably, Dua performed on Saturday Night Live‘s episode last week hosted by Kristen Wiig and she absolutely killed it. Singing her two hits “Don’t Start Now” and “Levitating,” Lipa absolutely owned the stage, performing with a confidence and presence that she’s surely developed over the past year since the release of “Don’t Start Now” as the lead single of Future Nostalgia.

During “Levitating,” Lipa wore a floaty hat that resembled a jellyfish, staying still as it danced around her head. That’s in contrast to the choreography she absolutely slayed during “Don’t Stop Now.” What versatility! Her vocals were as deep, rich, and impressive as ever. They’re definitely must-see performances.
