Last Sunday, at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, Kendrick Lamar performed with Imagine Dragons. They did a hybrid of Imagine Dragon's 'Radioactive' and Kendrick's 'm.A.A.d. City.' It happened again.

It was on Saturday Night Live. Melissa McCarthy hosted, and Imagine Dragons were the musical guest. And Imagine Dragons' new BFF Kendrick showed up to perform, once again, a 'Radioactive' remix. Watch it below.

The SNL version was a little bit different than the one we heard last weekend on the Grammys. This time, there was more Dragons than Kendrick. There was more structure and it was less instantly frantic. It was a much slower burn, and it led to a hot Kendrick verse and an explosive, drum-slamming finale.

Watch both versions (SNL above, Grammys below), and tell us which one you think is better.
