Last night’s Dakota Johnson-hosted Saturday Night Live episode was pretty flat. Ironically, the Fifty Shades of Grey sketch—in which Kyle Mooney plays a middle-school journalist who interviews Johnson for his school paper, and inadvertently reveals some dark secrets about his dad—might have been the night’s highlight, in terms of sketches. 

However, this was one of those nights where the musical guest overshadowed the host. Alabama Shakes performed two songs, “Don’t Wanna Fight” and “Gimme All Your Love,” and singer Brittany Howard’s voice scorched the earth. The songs are off the band’s upcoming album, Sound & Color, and we can’t wait for it.
