Former Saturday Night Live writer John Mulaney was the show's first ever Leap Day host ... but it was the musical guest who was the real star.
Former Talking Head frontman David Byrne brought his broadway adaptation of the Amercian Utopia Broadway show to the top of the Rock ... and it brought the house down. He even appeared in a skit - a la Jack White did the last time Mulaney hosted.
If you are unfamiliar with the performance - it features Byrne - barefoot - performing alongside a troupe of musicians playing wireless intruments. It is really amazing. For the show - Byrne performed the Talking Heads classic - Once in a Lifetime and the BPA song he's featured on - Toe Jam.
