During his performance of “Tequila Shots” on the show, he wore a rumpled green cardigan with a T-shirt featuring a photo of the late “SNL” cast member Chris Farley.
The sweater and dress appeared to be a homage to Kurt Cobain, who notably wore a cardigan during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged concert in 1993 and a floral dress on a cover of the now-defunct Brit magazine “The Face” that same year.
Cobain died by suicide at the age of 27 on April 5, 1994. Farley died of a drug overdose in 1997 at the age of 33.
