Late-Night TV Music (Companionship Edition) | June 9, 2020

Sia, Brad Paisley and Josh Groban help us all connect via the airwaves.

Connection and companionship have been in short supply during these socially distant days. But as always, the late-night TV talk shows and their musical guests are here to help. Those looking for simple fun and frolic can find it in Sia and dancer Maddie Ziegler’s colourfully homespun performance of Together on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Kimmel. Those in need of some lighthearted drinking-buddy camaraderie will get a taste from Brad Paisley and The 8G Band’s rendition of No I in Beer on Late Night with Seth Meyers. And those longing for a little romantic tenderness need look no further than Josh Groban’s performance of his new piano ballad Your Face on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Granted, none of them is quite the same as the real deal. But as the ads used to remind us, it’s the next best thing to being there. At least these days.
