Allison Russell

Russell performed the bluesy title track from her new album The Returner on Jimmy Kimmel Live! If you look closely, you may notice that her band is entirely made up of women, right down to the string section that joins on the bridge.


Debuting their sax-driven new song “Modern Girl” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jack Antonoff and co. kicked off the rollout of their highly-anticipated fourth studio album, which should probably be out sometime next year. The band displayed their old-school influences in everything from the sound to their stage design, as always led by an exuberant Antonoff.

Depeche Mode

Depeche Mode returned to the Tonight Show stage after performing their song “Wagging Tongue” the week before, this time with a haunting performance of another Memento Mori standout, “My Favourite Stranger.”

Sheryl Crow

Sheryl Crow‘s got a new album, Evolution, on the way, and stopped by Fallon for a hard-rockin’ performance of her new song “Alarm Clock.” The classic staging suits the straightforward guitar-based pop bid. With its catchy, relatable hook — who doesn’t hate their alarm clock? — you can likely expect to hear a lot of this one from the rock-pop staple.

Madison Beer

Decked out in a glittery prom dress with a stage evoking an abandoned playground, the singer delivered an uptempo performance of the song “Sweet Relief” from her new album Silence Between Songs on Kimmel.

Willie Nelson

Celebrating his recent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, the legend Willie Nelson stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert to perform “I Never Cared For You” and “Whiskey River” from his Greatest Hits album. The latter was apparently a surprise encore! Gotta love free music!
