I honestly can’t remember the last time all five of the late-night TV chat shows had musical guests. So I don’t want to spoil the moment with a bunch of blowhard blather. Let’s get right to the action:
For me, the performance of the night belonged to sibling duo Chloe x Halle, delivering a typically stylish (and extremely red) rendition of Do It on Jimmy Kimmel Live! They weren’t the only family band doing in on Tuesday: The D’Addario brothers of retro-rock duo The Lemon Twigs offered up their new number Hell on Wheels for Late Night With Seth Meyers — although their rehearsal-hall approach was far more casual than Chloe x Halle. And less fine-artsy than Regina Spektor, who enlisted dancer Caleb Teicher to add a few new moves to her black-and-white clip for the piano ballad Prisoners on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. For those in search of something a bit more earthy, Buju Banton and his band took to the rooftop to play The World Is Changing — from his first new album in a decade — for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. And finally, newcomer Jeremy Zucker made his late-night debut on The Late Late Show With James Corden, presenting his poppy single Supercuts while strolling through an art gallery. I honestly can’t remember the last time I saw one of those either.
