Bon Iver

Bon Iver performed a couple songs on SNL last weekend. The first was my favorite song from one of my favorite albums of 2011. The second was the best 80's songs of the 21st century (so far), and also a personal favorite.

Justin Vernon performed both songs from atop a riser. It's obscured by the oriental rug, but it's there. Probably 6 inches high. Drum Risers everywhere, but has anyone used a Lead Singer Riser before? I can't recall seeing one. Vernon does't strike me as a particularly short or egomaniacal man, so I'd love to know his reasons for exalting himself like this.
