Earlier this week, Elvis Costello and The Roots supported the release of their new collaborative album, Wise Up Ghost, with a two-song performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, the same program where the two acts originally met and began discussing a joint project. On Thursday, Costello returned to the show once more, this time joining The Roots for Wise Up Ghost songs “Cinco Minutos Con Vos” and the title track. For both performances, they were accompanied by a string and horn section.

Also worth watching: On Wednesday night, The Roots’ Questlove and “Captain” Kirk Douglas reprised their role as Black Simon and Garfunkel to cover Katy Perry’s single “Roar”. Obviously, it’s just the best.
