If I could turn back time … well, I guess I wouldn’t have to. Not if I wanted to see Cher, Tears for Fears and Paul Simon play their old hits on late-night TV. Classic covers night kicked off with The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which essentially morphed into one long commercial for the Broadway jukebox musical The Cher Show — including weird performances of I Got You Babe and If I Could Turn Back Time featuring Cher singing with multiple impersonators of herself. For something a little less insanely creepy, maybe switch over to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, where Paul Simon enlisted the house band for his Cajun-spiced Graceland chestnut That Was Your Mother — marred only by Colbert pretending he could play the Rubboard and literally (as opposed to musically) upstaging the drummer during his solo. Nice work, dude. Thankfully, the host of Jimmy Kimmel Live felt no compulsion to jump onstage and join Weezer and Tears for Fears as they played the latter’s signature song Everybody Wants to Rule the World, from the former’s recent Teal Album. Looking for new music? You had two choices: Nashville singer-songwriter Ingrid Andress’s performance of her meh single Lady Like on Late Night With Seth Meyers, or Sean Paul and J. Balvin’s equally meaningless Contra La Pared (Translation: Against the Wall) on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Enjoy, babe.
