Another thing that I really loved about the Alabama Shakes performance (along with discovering how good they were like many of you!) was the way the cast responded to them. Several of them tweeted the next day how wowed they had been by AS, how they were still listening to their music, etc. I know that SNL took pride in the past for breaking hot new artists. It seems like they really nailed it when the booked that group. Even the people involved with the show didn't realize how fortunate they were until the show was done!
