Last night Mitski performed her incredible song “Your Best American Girl” on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. As always, her voice was chills-inducing, and together with the powerful backing band, Jon Batiste and Stay Human, she rendered the song in its full glory.
Mitski said of the performance in a Facebook post:
Last night I sat in with the house band at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, I was mostly there for the live audience but still got to play this song with the quickest most talented musicians in NY (we’d never met until we played together day-of!) Feeling full of love, thank you
The performance wasn’t broadcast live, but luckily for us, The Late Show posted it as a web exclusive. Watch it above.
