The Lumineers' "Ho Hey" Dominated 'Saturday Night Live'

Denver folk-rock outfit join host Jennifer Lawrence, whose Golden Globe-winning film 'Silver Linings Playbook' is soundtracked by their hit
 / 

The Lumineers and their hit "Ho Hey" straight dominated TV on Saturday night. Even if you missed the Denver band's set on Saturday Night Live, chances are you still heard "Ho Hey" on the trailer for Silver Linings Playbook, which stars the episode's host Jennifer Lawrence, or the Blue Moon Brewing commercials. This song is inescapable! But, really, why'd you want to escape such folk-rock beauty?

The Lumineers, nominated for two Grammys this year (Best New Artist and Best Americana Album), opened up their SNL gig, naturally, with "Ho Hey," as fedora'd frontman Wesley Schultz led the stomping and hollering, and fitfully strummed his acoustic guitar. They returned later in the show with "Stubborn Love," the second single off their self-titled debut, again flaunting their signature rustic Americana sound and group vocals of heartbreak .

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
