Alessia Cara ‘SNL’ Performance Of “Scars To Your Beautiful” – WATCH VIDEO
Alessia Cara sang “Scars To Your Beautiful” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is the third single off her most recent album Know-It-All. See the video below of Alessia Cara’s performance of “Scars To Your Beautiful” on “Saturday Night Live.”
This marks Cara’s debut as the musical guest on “SNL.” The singer actually predicted her appearance on the sketch comedy show five years ago when she was just a teenager. She tweeted in July 2012, “I wanna go on SNL one day.” And now that time has come.
Cara told Jimmy Fallon on Friday’s “Tonight Show” that being on “SNL” for the first time is “fun” and “scary.” During that same appearance, she and the talk show host played “Wheel of Musical Impressions,” during which she had to impersonate other females artists singing an array of odd songs. Cara first mimicked Ariana Grande singing “Skidamarink,” with all her breathiness. After that, the young singer did Nicki Minaj performing the theme song to “The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air,” complete with the rapper’s attitude. And finally, Cara nailed an impression of Lorde singing “Baa Baa Black Sheep.”
The official video for “Scars To Your Beautiful” has been viewed more than 28 million times, and shows mostly women and some men with a variety of scars, imperfections and body type sizes. The central message of the song and video, which features some of the women and men speaking, is all people are beautiful and the only thing that needs to change is how people view others. “Scars To Your Beautiful” reached number 10 on the prestigious Billboard Hot 100 chart. It also peaked at two on the Adult Top 40 chart, 14 on the Adult Contemporary chart, and number one on the Mainstream Top 40 and Dance/Mix Show Airplay charts.
