Our good friend and client comic/tv host Frank Nicotero turned us on to this music duo “Karmin.” They appeared on “Saturday Night Live” (SNL) this past weekend (Feb. 11, 2012) performing two original songs which is what all music acts do on the show, ‘Original Songs’ but the duo is a viral YouTube sensation known for their cool and creative covers of Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Lil’ Wayne, Bruno Mars, Adele, Rhianna, LMFAO and many more. The covers are a mix of quirky, hip, funny blended with great vocals, harmonies and rapping, and AWESOMENESS!
