During his SNL production, he began with “Nice to Meet Ya” with an electrifying and energetic performance with flashing lights, a bright pink suit, and a phenomenal band. Horan’s alluring vocals sparked up the stage throughout the melody of the pop-rock song.

In Horan’s second act, he debuted “Put a Little Love on Me” through an emotional and beautiful rendition of the ballad. Horan premiered the single earlier this month and revealed the single meant a lot to him as a result of his revealing vulnerability through the lyrics of the song.
