There has been some question about the authenticity of Kacey Musgraves performance of her new song Justified on Saturday Night Live this past weekend. It turns out it was ALL real.
There was no lip synching, no miming and one more thing; no clothes. Well, she was wearing boots. Her a la natural performance was confirmed by her publicist according to Variety magazine. “She was nude. Precautions were taken, and this is the first time this has happened on the show”. We are all wondering what precautions? She looked beautiful and you can’t really “tell” except for the very beginning. If you watch the beginning you can see her hiney. But it was all tasteful.
Most people there in the studio audience and in the viewing audience at home did not notice. There was lots of mood lighting and it was all dimly lit. Kacey was seated on a bar stool with a decent-sized acoustic guitar, a strap across one shoulder and her hair draped over her shoulder.
Here is the video of her performance right here.
