Late-Night TV Music (Double Shot Edition) | Dec. 10/11, 2019

Don't expect much holiday cheer from me — unlike some of these performers.

I’m still playing catchup after Wednesday’s shitstorm of… well, shittiness. And frankly, I’m still kinda ticked off about it all. So don’t expect much holiday spirit from me — unlike some of the artists who have been turning up on the late-night TV shows. Exhibit A: She & Him’s M. Ward and Zooey Deschanel performing Christmas Day on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Exhibit B: Vampire Weekend, enlisting a kids’ choir to add a bit of Peanuts’ Christmas Time Is Here to their own Harmony Hall on The Late Late Show. On the non-seasonal tip, Wednesday also brought us a solo spot by Billie Eilish’s brother and collaborator Finneas, performing the contrasting cuts I Don’t Miss You and I Lost a Friend on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Meanwhile, country crooner Thomas Rhett trotted out Notice on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and the ubiquitous Gary Clark Jr. played This Land for the zillionth (and hopefully last) time on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. For those who missed Tuesday’s segments, it was a battle between pop and jazz: On the one hand, teen idol Harry Styles performed Adore You while guest hosting for James Corden on The Late Late Show, and Charlie Puth hit the dance floor with Mother on The Tonight Show. On the other, Late Show bandleader Jon Batiste took centre stage for a change to play the NOLA-tinged Prince and Blacck from his recent album Chronology of a Dream: Live at the Village Vanguard. Now we’re all up to speed again. For the moment.
