Macklemore & Ryan Lewis made only their second TV appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend. During “Thrift Shop”, Macklemore’s mic was lower in the mix so everything was louder than him. It has been mixed correctly for the web version. There was no issues with “Can’t Hold Us” during the show.

Macklemore came out on fire for “Can’t Hold Us” and I must say it was nice to see independent artists getting their shine on SNL. It is a shame there was mixing issues when it originally aired.-DocFB

Diagnosis: It wasn’t done on purpose….right?

    hmmm… If that clip is supposed to be the one that is “mixed correctly” I’m glad I wasn’t watching it live. It’s bad enough the hook was just the pre-record (and PLENTY loud)…. but that’s pretty bad when you ONLY have the track and like one vocal mic and a few additional horns for the riff…. and STILL can’t get the balance right. You are right though Doc… indie artists on SNL… I’ll take it.
