They performed live on SNL for the first time, one thing no alternative EDM act (whether they’ve created the jump to pop or not) has done before.
The performance for “Paris,” that was initial of the night, shows us a couple things. First, The Chainsmokers were absolute geniuses for bringing on Matt McGuire as the drummer for their live show because he crushed that performance. Second, SNL’s sound system or technique of recording simply doesn’t cut it for an electronic-tinged performance. However, Vincent’s team should be completely ecstatic that the first drop of the song is from his remix of “Paris.”
