The chart-topping sister trio also appeared in an 1980's themed sketch on the comedy show
Haim made their debut appearance on late night comedy show Saturday Night Live yesterday (November 23).
The trio performed their songs ‘The Wire’ and ‘Don’t Save Me’ on the show – scroll down to watch. The band also appeared in a sketch alongside actor Josh Hutcherson which you can see below. Speaking to NME earlier this year, the band’s bass player Este Haim said that it was her dream as a child to appear on the long-running programme, recalling when she performed a comedy skit as a teenager at acting class.
“I chose this really funny scene from a play, I perform it with my friends, everyone in my class is laughing hysterically, I’m feeling really good about it, the scene ends,” she said. “Then the teacher starts talking, talking, talking. And I’m not really listening because I’m so high off the performance and then she goes, ‘OK Este, I’m going to save you a lot of trouble in the future right now. You can’t think that you’re just going to get on Saturday Night Live. You should concentrate on something else.’ And everyone in the room looked at each other and thought, ‘That’s soooo harsh’. To me it was a victory like, ‘I’m funny’. But she shot me down. And I remember at the break, going to the bathroom, I was crying a little, it was really hard. I looked in the mirror and thought, ‘It’s time to move on. Focus on something different.'”
Last month Haim went in at Number One in the Official UK Albums Chart with their debut album ‘Days Are Gone’. In the midweek chart update, the LA sisters were trailing Justin Timberlake‘s ‘The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2’ (2) by just 700 copies. However, they finished the week more than 2,100 copies ahead of the ‘Take Back The Night’ singer, denying him a fourth consecutive UK Number One.
