Every time an internet-indie sensation makes her American network TV debut, an angel gets its wings, which means Jimmy Fallon is helping a whole lot of seraphim get off the ground these days. Last night, Grimes came through the Fallon show to sing “Genesis,” and we got the closest thing to the undiluted Grimes experience that I can imagine on a TV show. She rocked a gigantic flowery bathrobe, played one keyboard and one electronic doohickey (sometimes balancing her mic on her shoulder so she could manage them both) and stood on a bed of rose petals while two dancers flanked her and jets of steam occasionally shot up. So yeah, it was pretty great. Watch it and download the song below.
