The Head & The Heart outnumber Freya Ridings in a lopsided matchup.


The late-night musical matchup is usually a pretty fair fight. Not this time. Thursday’s card was a seriously one-sided affair, with one artist totally dominating the proceedings. That would be Seattle folk-rockers The Head and The Heart, who not only performed two songs from their recent Living Mirage album on Jimmy Kimmel LiveMissed Connection and See You Through My Eyes — but also offered up another 15 minutes of unaired performances from their set. Next to that, anybody would be hard-pressed to compete. Including severely outnumbered British singer-songwriter Freya Ridings, who presented the solo piano ballad You Mean the World to Me on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Poor woman never stood a chance. Ah well, there’s always room for a rematch.
