It was long ago and faraway, the world was younger than today – Janis Ian on the 1st SNL

On Oct. 11, 1975, Janis Ian performed “At Seventeen,” her song about teenage pain and coming-of-age awareness, on the first broadcast of NBC’s Saturday Night Live. The song had been released as a single in August and would go on to win a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female.

Her SNL performance always gets removed from YouTube, but here’s her Grammy Award performance from four months later in February 1976.
