By / November 20, 2017 / Celebrity, TV

Fans took to Twitter to express disappointment at Eminem’s performance on Saturday Night Live.

The Detroit native performed a medley of new and old material, including his brand new song Walk On Water.

After the performance, many thought the 49-year-old, had lost his touch and was relying on old hits to win over the crowd.

‘Eminem doing a time machine performance and it ain’t helping the fact that he’s washed up and old,’ a user wrote, with another saying, ‘Awful performance on SNL. @Eminem.’

‘Eminem sucks so bad and it sounds like he’s spitting every time he talks @nbcsnl make it stop,’ one user wrote, breaking specific elements in the performance which they believed weren’t up-to-snuff.

Another groused: ‘#Eminem is terrible…damn does the dude have any sense timing/rhythm? Well at least he got the grey dyed out of his beard… that’s something I guess.’

Echoing a similar sentiment, one said: ‘Wish I could text my 7th grade self like: ‘Omg b****, Eminem still raps in 2017 and he sucks!”


However, the feedback wasn’t all bad with many of his loyal fans tweeting their love for the performance.


The rapper won his ninth Best Hip Hop award at the MTV Europe Music Awards earlier this month.

And after Eminem was announced as the winner, he took to the mic and explained how surprised he was to have received the award as he hadn’t released any new material for a while.

“Yo, first off … I wanna start off, I’m not really sure how I got this, because I haven’t had an album out in a few year.

“I got one coming, though.”
