Late-Night TV Music (Bubbles & Bahamas Edition) | June 10, 2020

Flaming Lips, Lenny Kravitz & Adam Lambert have different ways to get the job done.

There’s more than one way for musicians to socially distance and still get the job done. Wednesday’s late-night musical performances bought us two unique and intriguing examples. First and foremost, of course, were the always-innovative Wayne Coyne and Flaming Lips, who broke out a brigade of bubbles to stage a safe live version of their classic Race For The Prize on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Then there’s Lenny Kravitz, who went in the opposite direction, performing all the various parts of his song Believe by himself (with a little help from his dogs) in his Bahamian home studio. Of course, some artists like to keep it simple — like Adam Lambert, crooning his number On The Moon with the help of a guitarist for The Late Late Show With James Corden. Well, at least he’s got the social part down.
