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

Watch Now! Andy Allo Performs “Long Gone” On Good Day NY

Andy Allo Promo Photo

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.

New York News | NYC Breaking News

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
