The typical Saturday Night Live music performance was taken to new heights this past weekend when Kanye West returned to the stage and transformed the aesthetics of the usually unsurprising music breaks between comedy skits.

The rapper, who has been on what many are calling a comeback tour, performed his singles “Power” and “Runaway” flanked by about 24 dancers dressed all in white as ballerinas. West himself was dressed head to toe in red, adorn in gold jewelry.

West abandoned the usual SNL stage backdrop and adopted a white screen, transforming his performance space into a heavenly white void. Check out “Power” above and his latest single “Runaway” below.
