The Bastille juggernaut broke the sound barrier tonight (January 25) with a brilliant performance of breakthrough hit “Pompeii” on Saturday Night Live. The Brits shook the stage with their chant-filled earworm — exposing a whole new audience to the relentlessly catchy Bad Blood gem.
The band always deliver the goods live and frontman Dan looked every inch a star in his hipster-tastic orange and grey sweater and trademark quiff. Their appearance on the show couldn’t be more timely with “Pompeii” rocketing into the Billboard Hot 100 this week. Bastille later returned to belt out piano ballad “Oblivion”.
Watch their first performance up top and second after the jump.
