Diagnosis: Superconductors...where U at????
Tegan and Sara just released "Heartthrob" and took to Jimmy Kimmel Live to perform "Closer" and "I Was A Fool" on the talk show.
Tegan and Sara have been around for a while but you can feel they are about to explode. These performances are a testament to that. Straight up, "Closer" is a huge hit and whomever is not playing it, what is wrong with you? Terrestrial radio programmers, I'm looking at you!
We were told Sara was under the weather for the performances but still did great. Check out the "Closer" & "I Was A Fool" above.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Define Heartthrob....
Andy Allo stopped by Good Day NY this morning for an interview and performance of her song "Long Gone" from her incredible album "Superconductor" which is available now.
Andy talked about describing her music as soul and funk. She incorporates it all in music, mind, body, and soul.
Andy also talked about the challenge of working with Prince and her excitement of working with him that made her better.
In an awkward moment, the female "newscaster" tried to do what we think was a Prince impersonation...or maybe it was Justin Bieber or something. "Call the police" was the right response.
The performance of "Long Gone" shows what we see in Andy. A talent who had a successful 20Twelve and should have an even more successful 20Thirteen.-DocFB
Hello funkenbabies. Trying to give you the downlow and what is happening on Kimmel so check back for more updates...
Andy performed all in white with a 12 piece band that included Maceo Parker. She performed "People Pleaser" and "If I Was King" off her "Superconductor" record due 11/20/12.
Prince & The NPG performed "Rock & Roll Love Affair" and a web exclusive version of "Dance Electric" (You will see it at the end of credits but a full version will be available on Jimmy Kimmel's site and here tomorrow.
After the camera's stopped rolling and loud chants of "We Want Prince", Prince performed "Take Me With U" but something was wrong with his guitar, which was working fine for the past 2 numbers. He had Andy do full vocals, picked up an acoustic guitar, n that one wasn't tuned right.
Prince then stopped the band and went into "Raspberry Beret" and then "Cream" complete with a Maceo solo.
Prince closed out the show doing a long version of "Cool".....
Now, it is on the Sayers Club for the Kimmel afterjam. Here is hoping there will be more shows that fans get a chance to go to later this week.....-DocFB
Like her excellent performances on The Ellen Show, Nicki kept it clean. We dig that!
Check out the performances from today on....er...."Today" yea, that't it.-DocFB
