Jack White didn’t disappoint as the last-minute musical guest replacement on Saturday Night Live last night (October 10.)

White was tapped as musical guest just days before the show after originally booked guest country singer Morgan Wallen was dropped due to breaking COVID-19 safety protocols.

White’s performances included a medley of “Ball and Biscuit”/”Don’t Hurt Yourself”/”Jesus Is Coming Soon” and “Lazaretto” which are embedded below.

During the performance of “Lazaretto,” White used a custom Eddie Van Halen guitar. Before the show, he shared on Instagram photos of the guitar along with the caption, “I thought it could be a nice gesture for me to use this blue Eddie Van Halen model guitar for one of the songs tonight on SNL. The guitar was designed by Eddie (with a few customizations I had added). Eddie was very kind to me and saw to it that this guitar was made for me to my specs. I won’t even insult the man’s talent by trying to play one of his songs tonight. Thanks again,
Eddie, for this guitar and rest in peace, sir.”
