How are you missing the point so badly?
what you said has no relevance to the thread. The album that Phoenix released in 2009 was not "before releasing a major album" so why did you bring them into the conversation...
how are you missing the point so badly? What you said has no relevance to the thread. Phoenix played SNL before releasing a major album in the US. They played SNL to promote the major album they were about to release in the US. so, again,
i'm confused about what confuses you. the original post, again,
"Lana Del Rey becomes the first artist in years to play Saturday Night Live before releasing a major album. Watch her sing "Video Games" and "Blue Jeans" at Idolator."
at what point does the post say 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, etc.?
please answer my original question.
