Watch Franz Ferdinand Play Kimmel

Way back in November, Franz Ferdinand released the video for their track "Bullet." The video features stylized footage of the band performing the song -- and now we've got some non-stylized footage of the band performing the song. The latest stop on their on the promotional circuit was a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last… More »

Watch Cut Copy Play Kimmel

The floppy-haired Australian dance-rockers Cut Copy are the sort of band who practically seem genetically engineered to play festival stages, and Jimmy Kimmel Live put them on one last night. Or, actually, Jimmy Kimmel Live put them on one several weeks ago. For reasons that I can't imagine, the band taped their appearance at the… More »

Watch Beck Play Kimmel

Now that his lovely singer-songwriterly album Morning Phase is out and his two Coachella sets are done, the Beck comeback is officially in full swing. Last night, he brought his single "Blue Moon" to Jimmy Kimmel Live. Kimmel had Beck perform on the show's outdoor festival stage, which was smart, since California twilight is probably… More »

Watch Chromeo Do “Come Alive” & “Jealous” On Kimmel

Synth-funk duo Chromeo are getting ready to put out their new album, White Women, next month. Last week they shared a new song featuring Ezra Koenig, and before that they did one with Toro Y Moi. This week they stopped by Jimmy Kimmel to perform the aforementioned Toro-collab "Come Alive" and "Jealous" to a big… More »

Watch Sam Smith Play Kimmel

The London soul man Sam Smith served as musical guest on Saturday Night Live a couple of weeks ago, but we should probably regard that as just the beginning of his American promotional push. Last night, he was on Jimmy Kimmel Live, singing the great dance-pop jam "Money On My Mind" -- easily Smith's biggest… More »

Watch Drake In Disguise Interview Pedestrians About Drake On Jimmy Kimmel Live

Two days ago, we learned that Drake would host this year's edition of the ESPYs, ESPN's sports awards show. And last night, Drake himself showed up on Jimmy Kimmel Live to take part in a recurring bit called "Lie Witness News." In this one, Drake donned a thoroughly unconvincing disguise and went out on Hollywood… More »

Watch Schoolboy Q Play Kimmel

Schoolboy Q already scored a Billboard #1 album with his new Oxymoron, but somehow the greatest indication I've seen of his rising star is the fact that Jimmy Kimmel Live booked him on its outdoor festival stage and that the hometown crowd gave him more of an ovation than you usually see on shows like… More »

Watch London Grammar Play Kimmel

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the smoky British trio London Grammar showed up to play "Strong," the same lovely ballad that they memorably played on Fallon earlier this year. If that song's Sade-style atmosphere can work in the relatively rowdy and corporate-logo-dotted Kimmel environment, it can probably work just about everywhere you can put… More »

Watch YG Play Kimmel With Jeezy & DJ Mustard

YG just released My Krazy Life, easily the best rap album of 2014 thus far, and he exists at the forefront of the West Coast's ratchet movement sound. He is a fully-formed new rap star, but he's not yet a great live show. I saw that for myself at SXSW last week, and he showed… More »

Watch Jimmy Kimmel Get SXSW Attendees To Act Like They’ve Heard Fake Bands

Back in the days of The Man Show, Jimmy Kimmel and Adam Carolla did a bit in which they got people to sign a petition to end women's suffrage, without explaining that that it's just a bad-sounding word for the right to vote. Kimmel brought the joke back in a less mean way by interviewingMore »

Watch Sky Ferreira Play Kimmel

"You're Not The One" was the first single from Sky Ferreira's ridiculously great debut album Night Time, My Time, even though it was maybe the sixth- or seventh-best song on the record. And somehow, it's still the one she's performing on late-night shows. But it's still a great song, and it's still awesome to see… More »

Watch Phantogram Play Kimmel

Yesterday the synth pop duo Phantogram released Voices and stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to play two of its best tracks. They did lead single "Black Out Days" and "Fall In Love," which recently got a video. Watch the performance below. More »

Silversun Pickups – “Cannibal” Video & Kimmel Performance

The big news in late-night TV last night was Jimmy Fallon's blockbuster debut as the host of The Tonight Show. But other things were happening in late night, too. Like: Kimmel had Silversun Pickups! The L.A. fuzz-rock band played on Kimmel's big outdoor stage, and if that's not quite the same thing as U2 playingMore »

Watch Broken Bells Play Kimmel

Broken Bells will release their second album, After The Disco, next week, on the heels of two singles, the title track and "Holding On For Life." James Mercer and Danger Mouse stopped by Jimmy Kimmel to perform those two songs, and you can watch both of them below. More »

Watch Danny Brown Play Kimmel With Purity Ring’s Megan James

Danny Brown is one of rap's most electric live performers, but somehow he'd never performed on a late-night show before last night. As the musical guest on Kimmel, he knocked out "25 Bucks," from his insanely good 2013 album Old. That's the Purity Ring-produced song about how Danny's mother supported an entire family by braiding… More »

Watch Vampire Weekend Play Kimmel

In fall 2012, months before they announced their staggering third album Modern Vampires In The City, Vampire Weekend appeared on one of Jimmy Kimmel Live's special Brooklyn shows and debuted the eventual album highlight "Unbelievers." Last night, we got an encore performance of sorts -- VW coming through Kimmel's big outdoor stage in L.A. and… More »

Watch Ron Burgundy And Christopher Cross Play Kimmel

On the soundtrack to the new movie Anchorman 2, Will Ferrell, in character as newscasting legend Ron Burgundy, teams up with Robin Thicke, of all people, to cover Christopher Cross's 1980 yacht-rock nugget "Ride Like The Wind." And on last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, Ferrell, still in character, emerged from a dry-ice cloud… More »

Watch Haim Play Kimmel

Haim hit Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to unfurl a pair of Days Are Gone jams. "Forever" was recorded for the TV broadcast, and they tacked on "The Wire" as an online extra. You know them, you love them, you will watch them again now. More »

Watch Poliça Play Kimmel

The great Minneapolis synth-pop group Poliça (can you believe these guys are American and Chvrches are the ones from Scotland?) took to Jimmy Kimmel Live last night with a pair of performances. On the broadcast, they breezed through Shulamith single "Spilling Lines," and they added their cover of Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me" a… More »
