George Ezra SNL


George Ezra performed “Budapest” on this week’s “SNL.” The song is the second single off his debut studio album Wanted On Voyage. Check out the video below of Ezra’s performance of “Budapest” on “Saturday Night Live.”

This marks the first time the 21-year-old British-born Ezra has been the musical guest on “SNL.” The video for “Budapest” is a little bizarre, with Ezra basically standing in the middle of a large crowd that’s for the most part motionless as he sings and plays guitar. There are a few moments when the packed crowd, dressed in assorted wild costumes, moves a little bit, including when Ezra goes crowd surfing while he continues to strum his guitar.

Ezra, who has been the supporting act for several other musicians, including Sam Smith, Hozier, and Robert Plant, is in the midst of his own North America tour, with dates in several cities such as New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and San Francisco. The folksy singer is also booked for both weekends at Coachella before heading back to Europe, where he’ll perform at festivals in the UK, France, the Netherlands and Denmark this summer.
