Late-Night TV Music | May 20, 2019

Mavis Staples and Ben Harper come to the rescue on a slow holiday Monday.

I’m still getting up to speed after the long weekend. Maybe some of you are too. So I’m going to keep this simple: Monday night’s televised music lineup was pretty light — but thankfully, gospel legend Mavis Staples and Ben Harper came to the rescue, performing Change and the title cut from their upcoming We Get By album on Jimmy Kimmel Live. That’s all you really need. But if you’d like a shot of reggaeton, by all means enjoy Sean Paul and J Balvin’s Contra La Pared from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. And if you want to see some guy in a bald-head cap lurch around on stilts, well, here’s Oliver Tree singing Hurt on The Late Late Show With James Corden. I’m honestly not sure what the point of that is, but hey, like I said, I’m moving kind of slow today. So I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.
