The Killers on Saturday Night Live

I thought they were quite good ( a great music season so far with Lil Wayne and even Duffy. King of Leon make me yawn). A small hiccup when the singer switched mics and the mic wasn't on. I think the music was too polished, but this was a t.v. performance. They played the great new single Human (for the record, I sang along and thought it was "dancer" too):

"Human" is a song by Las Vegas-based alternative rock band The Killers, and was released as the first single from the band's third studio album Day & Age. It began receiving airplay on September 22, with a digital release on September 30.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine's Smoking Section, Brandon Flowers described "Human" as "like Johnny Cash meets the Pet Shop Boys" and confessed to not putting it on Sawdust as "it was too good". There have been several mis-conceptions regarding the use and pronunciation of the word "denser" used in the line "Are we human or are we denser?" with many forum users and critics questioning Brandon Flowers' use of the word "dancer".
