Watch: Eminem mimes badly on Saturday Night Live Photo:

Eminem performed single 'Berzerk' on Saturday Night Live last night, (November 2nd) but it would appear that the rapper was miming, and not very well. See the video below.

To coincide with the release of new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which is due out next week, Eminem visited the SNL studio's this weekend to perform two tracks. It's been known that the rapper frequently performs alongside a backing track, however it's clearly noticeable during his performance of 'Berzerk' that he was in fact miming. 

Watch the performance and decide for yourselves, below: 


He returned to the SNL stage later on to perform 'Survival' with Skylar Grey, which seemed to go a lot better than 'Berzerk', but still begs the question as to whether or not he mimed on both performances.

Eminem first came under scrutiny for miming after his headline performances at this year's Reading and Leeds Festival, where fans were left disappointed over the fact the rapper was visibly off-beat and not synchronised with the tracks vocals.
