All five talk shows had a musical guest — but did it turn out to be a winning hand?

The odds of getting a full house in poker are nearly 700 to 1. The odds of getting one in the late-night talk show game are only slightly better. But Thursday was one of those rare occasions when it happened: All five of the major network shows featured a musical guest — and in keeping with our poker theme, the lineup even consisted of three female vocalists and two male-centred duos. Start with singer-songwriter Angel Olsen, presenting the string-sweetened title track to her brand-new album All Mirrors on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon — while simultaneously sporting the most dangerous-looking headgear of the night. At the same time, Carrie Underwood was doing her thing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, belting out her latest ballad Low. Meanwhile, Anderson .Paak and the legendary Smokey Robinson teamed up for the feel-good soul number Make It Good on Jimmy Kimmel Live. The other duo of the night? Vocalists Lauv and Anne-Marie, joining forces on his now-ironically titled pop ditty Lonely while he aired out his massive T-shirt collection on Late Night With Seth Meyers. Finally, bringing up the rear, you had Broadway dynamo Kristin Chenoweth, crooning the Eagles’ cowboy ballad Desperado on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Granted, it might not be the best hand you could draw, but hey, you can’t win them all. Not even with a full house.
