Troye had the huge honor of performing his new singles, “My My My” and “The Good Side” on Saturday Night Live. It received a mixed reaction.

The singer re-enacted the flamboyant dance moves seen in the “My My My” music video, but if you hadn’t ever tuned into the Troye Sivan show, you might not understand what. What the hell is going on.

To be honest, I didn’t mind the flailing. It’s actually kind of endearing. I took an issue with the vocals a bit, but that might’ve just been nerves.

Troye delivered with his performance of “The Good Side,” however, one of my favorite releases in 2018 thus far. It was stripped back and dreamy, just like the song, but I fear a lot of the SNL audience wasn’t prepared to give Troye a second chance once he started shimmying his shoulders again. Sigh.

My advice: stay out of the comments section. That goes for you too, Madonna!

  1. Even knowing his videos and music, that performance was all sorts of uncomfortable lol. Not feeling this era either. Why is everyone’s music sucking this year so far? 🙁

  2. Everything was off with this performance. His hair is a mess; he needs to lose the blonde and get rid of the greasy look. He also lacked personality in his vocals and performance. It really did look like he thought he was being ****. He should have had backup dancers. I don’t know who’s worse… Troye’s moves or Lorde’s.

  3. What the eff is this nonsense that I’m reading? This era is flawless so far. Troye has come a long way, he’s getting to know himself more and more, and he’s definitely talented and has something to say. And not everybody can “get” an artist, maybe he’s simply not everybody’s cup of tea, and that’s fine. There’s a reason why the gay community IS a minority. Like, in numbers. And SNL is massive. This was basically getting something straight from a gay club to national television. And I’m pretty sure that was Troye’s original intention, because he’s a smart guy and he’s on a mission bigger than himself or his musical career. So this general reaction (really, though? how is this representative of the whole?) doesn’t surprise me. But people are mean when they speak, and that is unnecessary.

    1. You are A.) the only one here with taste. And B.) couldnt agree more. Im sorry straight people were uncomfortable ? whats new…C.) this era is amazing the lyrics have been A grade and production awesome. The artwork has been personal. D.)
