Saturday Night Live started its new season with Emmy Awardee Phoebe Waller-Bridge. But the show’s second episode topped it with Taylor Swift as the guest singer.

However, the song was a reprise of her song Lover. But the vocals, melody she used was a lot smoother and benign than the earlier versions. Besides, her playing piano added a soothing and ethereal quality to her extraordinary performance.
Next, she sang False God. In particular, this is the first time she performed this song live. The scenery is set with glowing lightbulbs setting the mood. Then Taylor’s look in an oversized black blazer and black sequined pants gave the song a mysterious and inquisitive look.
However, the highlight was saxophone playing in the background. The song relied on the beats and tuning of the mesmerizing saxophone. Conversely, the original song has used a lot of instruments.
Swift was accompanied by backup singers and Lenny Pickett, SNL’s musical director, on saxophone, giving a jazz feel to the rendition.
