Watch Billy Joel and Jimmy Fallon Perform Together on ‘The Tonight Show’

It’s no secret that Jimmy Fallon books incredible acts for his show. He’s hung out with Springsteen, joked with Vedder, and had the President of the United States slow jam the news. But once again, Fallon became the giddy fan he is inside, this time for Billy Joel.

Joel performed “You May Be Right” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, where part-way through Fallon joined in with a James Brown impression. Look out for some forward singing, dancing, and sax playing. During the interview, Fallon and Joel sang The Lion King theme song as a two-man doo-wop group with …

Jimmy Fallon The Muppets

Watch Jimmy Fallon’s Farewell to Late Night with The Muppets

After five great, long, music-filled years, Jimmy Fallon stepped down from his role as the host of the Late Night only to step up to his new position as the host of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. With so many talented past guests and a house band like The Roots, the question on everyone’s mind was what would Fallon do for his farewell performance? Something, perfect, of course.

Fallon managed to get The Muppets to join him onstage for a goofy-but-serious cover of The Band’s “The Weight” before walking offstage and into his new set for The Tonight Show.

Watch Dum Dum Girls Perform “Rimbaud Eyes” on ‘Letterman’

Dum Dum Girls stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman a few nights ago to perform “Rimbaud Eyes” off of their new album. The performance shows they’ve still got it, and probably makes you question why you ever thought they’d lose it.

Too True is their first new album in three years. Instead of the lo-fi sound we’re used to from their humble beginnings, the Dum Dum Girls switched things up this time around for some surf punk and 80′s goth rock that is hard to stop spinning. If you need any more convincing to check it out other …

Danny Brown

Watch Danny Brown Make His TV Debut on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’

If you’re still coming down from the Danny Brown high that was all of last year, don’t worry — we are, too. Brown saw his third full-length, Old, receive some serious attention, released numerous music videos, and debuted on remixes galore (like Vampire Weekend’s “Step“). What he has yet to do, however, is make his TV debut.. but now he’s checked that off his list.

Last night, Brown performed “25 Bucks” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for his his first live performance on TV ever. He handled it well, not missing a single word while Purity Ring’s Megan …

Watch: Judas Priest Parody Themselves On ‘The Simpsons’

Rob Halford and the rest of Judas Priest made a brief appearance on the long-running FOX animated series The Simpsons last night (January 5). The episode, titled Steal This Episode, dealt with Homer learning the consequences of illegal downloading after opening a backyard movie theater in Springfield cleverly named ‘Cinema Pirate-diso.’ When the proverbial shit hit the fan the entire Simpsons clan found themselves swarmed by the FBI, and not long after the band responsible for “Breaking The Law” rolled through on the back of a truck (much like Metallica did a few seasons back). You can view the …

Mazzy Star Perform on Fallon for First TV Appearance in 20 Years

In September of this year, California’s iconic dream-pop veterans Mazzy Star released their first album in over 17 years, Seasons of Your Day. They toured in support of that album beginning earlier this month, making it their first time running around the country in 17 years as well.

Alternative Ending to ‘Breaking Bad’ Surfaces; Plays Into Fan Theories

When Breaking Bad ended, I think the fandom at large sighed in relief. A perfect series had an acceptable ending. That’s more than most shows can boast. Vince Gilligan’s masterpiece was complete. Forever marked in television history as one of the best dramas to fill an hour block.

Cue DVD release. Now that the series has finished, it’s natural to release it in its entirety to the world via Digital Versatile Disc and BluRay. It’s even more natural to pack in tons of special features. Perhaps even an alternate ending?

Yes. The following video is confirmed by Hypable as an …

ICE-T

UTG TV: Ice-T Q&A At CBGB Music & Film Festival

“When it’s all said and done, no ones gonna remember what I had. They’re going to remember what I said,” proclaims Ice-T. “If you tell the truth, it will always be relevant.”

The past month has been a serious onslaught of concerts, film screenings, press events, and more for the New York City area. Between CMJ and CBGB’s you couldn’t walk ten feet without finding another great exposition of artistic integrity.

One event UTG was fortunate to sit in on was an intimate press conference with notorious rapper, actor, and entrepreneur, Ice-T. He discussed everything you could imagine. The reunion …

WATCH: Kanye West’s Full Interview On Jimmy Kimmel Live

Kanye West and Jimmy Kimmel have had a large on going feud where both sides seemed a tad out of place. Kimmel mocked West’s interview with the BBC, using children to quote West in an attempt to mock him. West responded with over the top angry Twitter rants that were unwitty and petty. The two were accused of it being a publicity stunt, but it appears that this was not the case.

Last night, Kanye West had a lengthy appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live. As such, it makes for a compelling interview, with West explaining his reaction as overcompensation …

American Authors (Formerly The Blue Pages) are making their way. They just released an EP and they have a song on two commercials (Lowes, and something on the History Channel).

Now they’ve made their television debut on Jay Leno’s late night program. They played their single “Best Day Of My Life” Oh and Zac Barnett got to shake Simon Cowell’s hand.

Watch the performance below.…

Dancing With the Stars Season 17

Bill Nye Will Be On ‘Dancing With the Stars’

The Dancing With the Stars cast for Season 17 has been announced, and it looks like one worth watching the whole way through. Not only are big names like Snooki of Jersey Shore or Elizabeth Berkley from Saved By The Bell cast, but Bill Nye, the one and only science guy, will be tango-ing his way across the stage, too.

Dancing With the Stars enters season 17 this time, with the first show airing now as a one night, two-hour format beginning Monday, September 16 at 8 PM on ABC. Viewers get to vote for their favorite each show. Honestly, …
