The future really is female. Ditto the present and the recent past. Think I’m kiding? Look no further than Monday’s late-night TV music lineup. After taking a week off for Presidents’ Day, the U.S. talk shows came back en masse on Monday, with a decidedly female-centric worldview. Folkster-turned-popster Caroline Rose gave a red-letter (and red-everything else) performance of her single Feel the Way I Want on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Grammy-nominated soulster Yola came clean with her song I Don’t Wanna Lie on The Late Late Show With James Corden. The multi-talented Hailee Steinfeld stepped up to croon her new ballad Wrong Direction on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. And for those young women who prefer to be on the other side of the fan-performer divide, non-threatening K-Pop pretty boys BTS took over New York’s cavernous Grand Central Terminal to dance and lip-synch their way through the song On for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. And there you have it. What new revelations and symbolic cultural truths will Tuesday night’s lineup bring to lilght? Come back tomorrow to find out. Or just watch all the shows yourself and make up your own blather — but really, where’s the fun in that?
