Watch Phoenix’s Confetti-Covered ‘The Real Thing’ on ‘Fallon’

Phoenix, "The Real Thing," Jimmy Fallon

Phoenix are seasoned late-night TV vets at this point, so they must’ve decided to let loose a little (relatively speaking, of course!) for last night’s gig on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. The French pop sophisticates performed chart-storming new album Bankrupt!‘s yearning “The Real Thing” on the broadcast, surrounded by a flurry of what appears to be confetti, though we’re pretty sure we spotted some currency floating around, too. As an online exclusive, they left the confetti on the floor for a breezy medley of the album’s “Trying to Be Cool” and “Drakkar Noir.” Also check out their sets for Saturday Night Live, Live on Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
