Late-Night TV Music (Full House Edition) | March 9, 2021

Fruit Bats, Janelle Monae, Kings Of Leon & more go big on the small screen.

It’s been a minute since we had a full house of Late-Night TV Music submissions from all five of the major chat shows, so let’s skip the lip-flap yap-yap and just get to it, no? Yes.

For me, Eric D. Johnson and Fruit Bats’ performance of the upbeat indie pop-rocker The Balcony on Late Night With Seth Meyers was the highlight of the night. Though I would have to admit that Janelle Monae’s surprisingly rocking (if overearnest) number Turntables — which she and her band energetically delivered on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert — wasn’t far behind. Wish I could say the same for Kings Of Leon, who continued to campaign tirelessly for their tiring new album When You See Yourself by playing the drab 100,000 People on The Late Late Show With James Corden. Of course, drab is not the word you would use to describe Pink Sweat$ and Kehlani, who brought their colourful duet At My Worst to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Finally, bringing up the rear, we have generic country-popster Niko Moon offering up a Good Time on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Phew. But in a good way, you know? Anyway, enjoy the rest of your day.
