War On Drugs, Gorillaz and Vance Joy kick off the fall talk shows on a mellow note.


And we’re back! Now that the late-night chatters have finally returned to active duty, it’s time to start compiling the nightly offerings once again.

Thankfully, the 2021 fall season started off fairly mellow, with just three performances (well, technically there were four, but Imagine Dragons’ live appearance on Kimmel isn’t up anywhere yet). Tuesday’s trio included The War On Drugs‘ dreamy recording-studio performance of Living Proof (on The Late Show Starring Stephen Colbert And His New Moustache), Gorillaz and AJ Tracey’s dubby video for Jimmy Jimmy (on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon) and Vance Joy’s gently jubilant clip for Missing Piece (on The Late Late Show With James Corden). That leaves Imagine Dragons as the only missingn piece. Ball’s in your court, Kimmel.
