Schoolboy Q made his network tv debut last night by performing “Man Of The Year” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Sounded a bit different backed by The Roots, but it was still dope. Check out his performance up above and lookout for Oxymoron on February 25th.
The Flaming Lips went on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to perform another off their new project, The Terror. The track they performed was “Try To Explain,” and in typical Flaming Lips fashion, it looked as creepy and weird as it sounded epic. Check out the performance above.
Is there anyone in Rock history more badass than Jimi Hendrix? His latest album People, Hell and Angels featuring previously-unearthed material was recently released and even debuted at number 2 on the Billboard charts. To support the album’s release and to honor the guitar legend, Janelle Monáe headed over to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and performed the Hendrix classic “Little Wing” alongside The Roots and Kellindo Parker on guitar. The cover was indeed pretty good. “Little Wing” is easily one of Hendrix’s best songs and it proves its timelessness as it sounded just as soulful, powerful and fresh as ever through Monáe’s rendition of it.

“Timberweek” continues on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and last night saw Timberlake debut a new song from his latest album. The new track has a Latin beat for the first half and so JT was backed by Brazilian musicians for this live rendition, later cutting into a groovy, contemporary disco sound.

The artist still known as Prince went on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to show us all why he’s still one of the coolest guys around. The purple one performed two songs, “Screwdriver” and “Bambi” backed by his all-girl band. The former has a bit of a Punk sensibility to it (snarl and all) while the latter is a bit funkier (falsetto and all) with showcasing his masterful guitar work.
See “Screwdriver” above and “Bambi” after the jump. Continue Reading
In more late night tele news, Tyler, The Creator went over to the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon stage to perform two tracks off his upcoming algum, Wolf.
