(AMP) — Two Detroit icons met backstage in New York City Saturday night.
Eminem was the musical guest on “Saturday Night Live” and the Detroit rapper gave a unique performance.
Instead of performing two separate songs, as is typical, Em performed one three-song medley which featured his new single “Walk On Water,” “Stan,” and “Love The Way You Lie.”
Skylar Grey provided the vocal features for each track which were originally performed by Beyoncé, Dido, and Rihanna respectively.
Among those in attendance was none other than former Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander.
Verlander, who just won the World Series with the Houston Astros and got married to supermodel Kate Upton, got to hang with Eminem backstage that night — and shared a photo of the occasion on Twitter.
What a crazy month it has been for JV.
