Troye Sivan Saturday Night Live


Troye Sivan sang “The Good Side” on this week’s “SNL.” Earlier, Sivan performed “My My My!” on “Saturday Night Live.” Watch the video below of Sivan singing his second song, “The Good Side,” on the comedy sketch show.

As Gossip Cop previously noted, this is Sivan’s first time on “Saturday Night Live.” Additionally, it’s the Australian singer’s first time performing “The Good Side” on live TV or anywhere else, having only the released the single on Thursday. So far, just the audio for the song has been listened to more than 1 million on YouTube.

While the 22-year-old singer is now happily dating male model Jacob Bixenman, and “My, My My!” is all about enjoying life and love, “The Good Side” is a slower tempo and sadder song. The second single to be released from Sivan’s upcoming album is about a breakup and serves Sivan’s apology to a past boyfriend.

In a recent interview with Beats 1 radio, Sivan explained that “The Good Side” is about how when two people split, it’s going to be “rougher” on one lover than the other, and in the breakup described in the song he “happened to be on the good side of things.” The young singer acknowledged the track is like a letter that expresses “apologies and sympathy.” He added that he didn’t want things to end the way they did and hoped that in a couple of years “The Good Side” would “serve as a cathartic experience for the both of us.”

Hours before his first first appearance on “SNL,” Sivan tweeted to his nearly 8 million followers, “Y’all better live tweet with #TroyeOnSNL tonight bc i wanna go through and read your reactions once I’m done hehehehe.” Check out the video below of Sivan performing “The Good Side” on this week’s “Saturday Night Live.”
