Late-Night TV Music (Cardi B-Free Edition) | Dec. 17, 2018

Not interested in taking a ride with Cardi & Corden? Here are some alternatives.

Not interested in sitting through nearly 15 minutes of James Corden‘s latest Carpool Karaoke segment with Cardi B? I hear you. For my money, that whole concept, er, ran out of gas a while back. Of course, your mileage may vary. OK, that’s enough car puns for one day. The point is: There were some other interesting performers on Monday’s late-night shows. For instance, you could have caught the TV debut of singer-guitarist Patrick Droney, whose performance of Stand and Deliver on Late Night With Seth Meyers suggests he could give John Mayer a run for his money in the blue-eyed soul man / white-boy bluesman department. If it was rap you wanted, you could have watched controversial rapper Kodak Black‘s introspective rendition of Testimony (from his just-released sophomore album Dying to Live) on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Or you could have watched Roots MC Black Thought delivering his track Conception with Salaam Remi on bass during The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. You could even have watched Australian pop-rockers Middle Kids playing their song Mistake later on the same episode of Corden’s Late Late Show. Still not done? Fine. I’ll throw in a bonus: Three (count ’em, three) songs from Ty Segall‘s punky outfit Gøggs, who stormed Last Call With Carson Daly the other night. That should keep you occupied long enough for Cardi B to drive on by into your rearview.
