Saturday Night Live in the 2010s found a new kind of balance. Even with many musical guests returning multiple times, the 2010s saw a lot of hosts. If you can't remember everybody who played on the show, then refresh your memory with this list of the bands who were musical guests from 2010 through 2019, ranked from best SNL 2010s musical guests to worst SNL 2010s musical guests.
The 2010s seemed to have more memorable repeat musical guests than any previous decade - with artists like Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, and Rihanna appearing four times each. Repeat acts also included Bruno Mars and Lady Gaga, who each got to play the dual role of host and musical guest - Bruno Mars in 2012 and Lady Gaga in 2013. Other memorable performers were Childish Gambino and Prince.
Just like the seasons and episodes themselves, the Saturday Night Live musical guests of the 2010s range from great to grueling. Vote up the bands and musicians who did the best job performing on SNL in the '10s.
