Black Keys - The Black Keys Join Jim Carrey On Saturday Night Live

The BLACK KEYS, the American blues rock band hailing from Akron Ohio, wowed viewers of SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE at the weekend (16th December 2011) when they performed two tracks on the show guest hosted by actor and comedian JIM CARREY, reports the Examiner. Critics were unanimous in their praise for the episode, which is being touted as the strongest effort since BETTY WHITE made an appearance with JAY-Z on May 8th 2010.
The BLACK KEYS, consisting of singer and guitarist DAN AUERBACH and drummer PATRICK CARNEY, first formed in 2001 and have to date sold 1.7 million records worldwide. On Saturday's show they performed 'Tighten Up' and 'Howling For You', both of which are taken from the band's sixth studio album 'Brothers'. Rolling Stone Magazine recently named the record as #2 on their list of 'The Best Albums of 2010'. The duo have been nominated for four GRAMMY AWARDS including 'Best Rock Song' and 'Best Alternative Album'.
48-year-old Carrey opened the show with a spoof of OSCAR tipped movie 'Black Swan', in which he took on the role of MILA KUNIS' character, Lily. The actor wore his hair in a bun, sported a black leotard and tutu and had a fake 'buffalo wings' tattoo on his back.
