Making your late night debut is obviously a huge moment in an artist’s career. But doing it with Foo Fighters Dave Grohl and Pat Smear playing as your supporting band makes it gi-freakin’-normous, and that’s just what Kristeen Young did last night on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Young and her superstar backup performed “Pearl of a Girl”, the latest single from her Grohl-produced new record, The Knife Shift. Watch the replay below.
Young made headlines last month when Morrissey blamed his most recent tour cancelation on the rock singer. Moz’s camp claimed Young, who was acting as opener, had hid an illness and subsequently gotten The Smiths frontman sick. Young denied that she was ever ill. The Knife Shift is out now.
