The four-year anniversary of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon proved to be a huge success. While Mariah Carey played champagne pong on the show, viewers got an even bigger treat: two songs from Prince . The Purple One took to the stage, hair picked out, for a performance that proved why he's so legendary. Prince first rocked out with his latest single "Screwdriver" before diving into the 1979 classic "Bambi." He didn't perform with The Roots , rather he was flanked by his new band 3rd [...]

As promised , Prince spent Friday night in New York City, making a rare television appearance on Late Night with Fallon Fallon .

Perhaps the biggest moment in Odd Future's sudden rise to dominance came two years ago, when Tyler, The Creator and Hodgy Beats bulldozed their way through Late Night With Jimmy Fallon , giving a thrillingly unstable performance of "Sandwitches." Last night, an older and more seasoned Tyler returned to the show, performing a couple of track from his new LP Wolf with the Roots backing him up. He started out on piano, playing a placid new song called "TreeHome," sung by Quadrant Music's Coco, then transitioned into an all-over-the-place version of [...]
Two years ago last week, Tyler, the Creator delivered what could be considered one of the greatest television performances ever on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon , propelling him to music stardom, a bidding war which led to the formation of his very own label, and collaborations with everyone from Kanye to Miley Cyrus. So, naturally, when it came time to promote his new album, Wolf , OFWGKTA's head honcho returned to 30 Rockefeller Center. Tyler stepped behind the piano to preview a new song entitled "Treehouse" before grabbing [...]

Performing the song on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon , Ware was aided by The [...]

When she released her brilliant debut album Devotion last year, some of us started wondering when the British soul singer Jessie Ware would make her way to American shores.

Last night, she made her American TV debut, singing her shattering single " Wildest Moments " on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon while the Roots backed her up beautifully. And Ware was born for this.
