The song started out normally, but the additional percussion instruments on stage added a degree of magnitude to the sound and the performance. Frontman Dan Reynolds gives an impassioned interpretation and until the song's break. Then, a full orchestral string section joins in as the whole band switches over to percussion duty. Kendrick comes out a spits an intense verse, showcasing his lyrical speed as the band pounds on the drums, and they hit the chorus again before a massive ending. Check it out above.
"Demons" - Imagine Dragons on SNL 2.1.2014:
The string section stuck around for their next song, a far more subdued performance. The band played "Demons," another track from 2012's Continued Silence. It's a far more calm and ambient number, but the emotions still ran hot and the crowd ate it up. Watch the video above.
