Grammy-winning rapper Eminem made last night’s “Saturday Night Live” broadcast one for the record books. The elusive hip-hop artist took center stage to perform multiple hit singles.

On the Chance The Rapper-hosted show, Em slayed with classics like “Stan” and his latest single, “Walk On Water.”

Eminem delivered a nine-minute, three-song medley during his Saturday Night Live musical guest spot, performing new single “Walk on Water,” “Stan” and “Love the Way You Lie.” On all three tracks, singer Skyler Grey filled in for each track’s respective guest – Beyoncé, Dido and Rihanna – while also playing piano for “Walk on Water.” Eminem and Grey were also backed by a string section and band.

However, some media outlets went in on Em for flashing back time.

The Detroit native delivered a rendition of his latest single Walk On Water from his forthcoming album Revival, while integrating elements of past hits such as Stan and Love The Way You Lie. But the feedback wasn’t likely what Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, and his label were looking for, with many grousing that the veteran rapper had lost his touch and had to rely on past glories to win over the crowd.

Slim Shady made sure to hit up social media to promote his performance.

  1. It’s gotta be tough at that level of success. He’s been so remarkable in his career that people expect him to be 100x better than EVERYONE else so when he’s only 90x better they wanna tear him down. To make it worse, they think its uncool to admit he’s great because its so obviois. He’s basically LeBron James of rap in that sense.
