Coldplay was the musical guest on "Saturday Night Live" this week, and the band played "Magic" and "Sky Full of Stars" from their album Ghost Stories while singer Chris Martin did a lot of jumps and kicks and showed off his belly by doing these back bend things. (Which probably feel really good on your lower back, so maybe we should all try them? Let's all try Chris Martin's back bend thing and then talk about it in the comments.) Lots of dance moves happening during this Coldplay set.

Watch it here:


"Sky Full of Stars"
