You might have heard that the Grammy nominations were announced yesterday. If not, congrats on having a real life. In any case, you probably won’t be surprised to hear that a few of the nominees showed up on the Late-Night TV Music circuit last night.
That included one of the bigger recipients: Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard, who celebrated her six nods by rewiring The Beatles classic Revolution into a freewheeling cosmic boogie on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Also on the Grammy list — for no valid reason I can discern aside from the nostalgia of aging voters — was wimpy balladeer James Taylor, who crooned Rodgers and Hammerstein’s timelessly inclusive South Pacific number You’ve Got To Be Taught for Jimmy Kimmel Live. One more Grammy entry: BTS, who blatantly celebrated The Late Late Show With James Corden with their performance of Dynamite. And finally, the exception to Wednesday’s award-nominated lineup: Internet Money, serving up his Lemonade on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon with the help of Gunna, Don Toliver and Nav. You may now resume griping about how your favourite artist got screwed.
