Staying true to his name, Father John Misty often delivers live performances that transcend the stage and feel like out-of-body religious experiences. His appearance on last night’s installment of Colbert was no different.

Josh Tillman commanded his way through both the subdued and dramatic portions of I Love You, Honeybear highlight “Holy Shit” with grace as well as a conviction that perhaps only a preacher could muster up.

While the studio version uses a swelling orchestral arrangement to signal a shift in the song’s dynamics, here that instance is marked by a pretty epic drum solo, wild, flashing lights and all. Everything changes after that point — you could say it was a true “Holy Shit” kind of moment.

Watch below.
