Women take centre stage on the late-night talk shows.

46

Welcome to Ladies Night! Well, actually, it’s already over. It was last night — when women took centre stage on the talk shows. And the biggest stage belonged to Carrie Underwood, who performed her anthemic new single Love Wins in Central Park for the Tonight Show cameras. Slightly smaller in scale but no less compelling, singer-songwriter Caitlyn Smith offered a moody take on her song Before You Called Me Baby on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Over on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Swedish sister act First Aid Kit broke out the glitter balls — not to mention the classic girl-group harmonies — for the deceptively dreamy Fireworks, from their new EP Tender Offering. The Late Late Show with James Corden didn’t have a female guest, but Good Charlotte does have a female-sounding name, so close enough. And along with cranking out the song Prayers with a skeleton choir, the Madden boys and their bandmates played along with Dr. Phil in a sketch. Finally (well, actually first, since it aired way earlier in the day), Last Call With Carson Daly hosted L.A. country singer Jaime Wyatt, who delivered a two-song set of Wishing Well and Wasco from the Troubadour.
