"Saturday Night Live" is streaming live video from backstage during rehearsals this week and will be during the season finale this Saturday to the Color for Facebook iPhone app.

Have you wondered what happens backstage during a "Saturday Night Live" broadcast? Well, this week iPhone users can catch a glimpse behind the scenes and set pieces. "Saturday Night Live" will be streaming live videos to the Color for Facebook app during rehearsals this week and from the season finale this Saturday, May 19.

In order to watch the videos, you need to do two things:

1. Install the free Color for Facebook app on your iPhone.

2. Like "Saturday Night Live" or Verizon Wireless on Facebook.

Once you have the Color app and like one of the two above entities, you'll get a notification when "SNL" is streaming a video to the app. You can also watch previously streamed videos. As of Wednesday afternoon, there are two videos with Jay Pharoah for your viewing pleasure. You can find them by scrolling through Color's Feed or by checking the app's Inbox.

The season finale looks to be a big show. Mick Jagger is hosting with musical guests Foo Fighters, Arcade Fire, and Jeff Beck.
