Eminem promoted the release of his upcoming album, "MMLP2", by hitting the stage of "Saturday Night Live" on Saturday, November 2. Making an appearance as a musical guest, the Detroit rapper performed some new songs from his highly-anticipated new record that is scheduled to hit the stores on November 5.
The Slim Shady opened his set on the NBC show with "Berzerk". He was joined by Rick Rubin, who executive produced Eminem's new LP. Wearing a gray jacket, a beanie and a pair of black shades, the producer played DJ, providing the sample of Billy Squier's "The Stroke" on his turntables.
Eminem later returned to the stage to perform "Survival", which was originally released as part of the soundtrack to the forthcoming video game "Call of Duty: Ghosts". He brought out frequent collaborator Skylar Grey instead of Liz Rodrigues, who's featured in the studio version of the track.
Addressing the criticism over its lack of black female cast member, that night's "Saturday Night Live" also featured Kerry Washington as a guest host. The actress played several black ladies, including FLOTUS Michelle Obama, TV mogul Oprah Winfrey and singer Beyonce Knowles.
