St. Vincent – “Cheerleader” 1/16 Conan | The Audio Perv
17 Jan
2012

St. Vincent paid tribute tonight on Conan to Elvis Costello’s infamous SNL performance. She launched into Costello’s “Radio Radio” before announcing to the crowd, “I’m sorry ladies and gentleman, there’s no reason to play that song” and then performed “Cheerleader.” (Read all about the original 1977 incident here)

  1. [...] Well, Conan certainly kicked the week off to a good start. Last night, Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, stopped on by the show to knock out a glimmering rendition of “Cheerleader” off of CoS Album of the Year, Strange Mercy. Rather humorously, Clark started the performance with a sly pop culture-savvy nod to Elvis Costello’s controversial 1977 Saturday Night Live performance by charging into “Radio Radio”, only to stop and state apologetically, “I’m sorry ladies and gentlemen, there’s no reason to play that song.” It was an odd move, but a pretty cool one. Naturally, Clark’s familiar anthem quickly followed after to perfection. Check it out below, courtesy of The Audio Perv. [...]

  4. [...] Perhaps in retaliation for Lana Del Rey being selected over her for the music slot on SNL last weekend (yes, it’s a reach, but it’s all we can conjure as explanation), St. Vincent evoked Elvis Costello’s infamous SNL performance on Conan last night. She began Costello’s great Radio Radio before stopping and announcing “I’m sorry ladies and gentleman, there’s no reason to play that song,” and then performing her song Cheerleader.  Check it out below courtesy of the Audio Perv.
