The Ting Tings Perform A Pair Of Familiar Hits On ‘SNL’

Jan 18th, 2010 // 2 Comments

Grammy nominated British duo The Ting Tings sidled up to Sigourney Weaver as guests on Saturday Night Live this past weekend. The pair have been prepping their sophomore album—which they told NME last week will be titled Kunst—for a summer 2010 release date.

Too bad they didn’t serve up any new songs, then, for their SNL gig. Instead members Jules De Martino and Katie White offered up their tried and true hits, “That’s Not My Name” and “Shut Up And Let Me Go.” (Watch below!)

By the time their second album hits shelves and digital retailers, it will have been over two years since the U.S. release of the Ting Tings’ debut We Started Nothing. Still, they’re up for Best New Artist at the 2010 Grammys. Here’s hoping that once they get that behind them, the pair start unveiling newer material in their appearances.

    I watched the first song and fast-forwarded through the second. I can't believe this group was nominated for a Grammy. I'm not sure what they played qualified as a song. Plus, during the first song all that I saw being played was a drum kit, so I must assume that the music being played was taped. I can't stand when musicians do that on “Saturday Night *Live*”.

    happened to see this show and … glad I did. Ting Tings was THE best music act I've seen on the show in years, many years. so not kidding. LOVED 'That's Not My Name'. loved it. since then, can't get enough.
