Maya Rudolph and the Roots Performing Prince's "Darling Nikki" Was the Best Thing on TV Last Night
[There was a video here]
As happy as I was with the Big Brother outcome (which I feel like I can't reveal here since this post isn't explicitly labeled as a spoiler reveal and the first rule of the Internet is that you can't say anything about anything anyway) and as much as I enjoyed Honey Boo Boo's bodily functions, Maya Rudolph's appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon took the cake where last night's TV is concerned. She and her friend Gretchen Lieberum are in the Prince cover band Princess, and they brought their take on Tipper Gore's all-time fav Prince song "Darling Nikki" to network TV after Maya spent some time with Jimmy on the couch. Supported by the Roots, Princess' cover is so straightforward that they even do that backwards part that's on the album. Ingenious, but oops, there I go with the spoilers again.
