TV Sets: A synopsis of the musical guests to hit the talk show circuit this week.


If there’s one thing learned from Death Cab For Cutie‘s “Late Show with David Letterman” performance, it’s that it takes two new members to replace the recently departed Chris Walla. The new lineup played “Black Sun” from their forthcoming album Kintsugi, out March 31st.

Sam Smith stopped by The Ellen Show to perform a song not inspired by Tom Petty. The Grammy nominated singer celebrated Ellen’s Birthday week by performing his newest single “Lay Me Down”.

Ellen continued her Birthday celebration with an elaborate performance from Sia. Everyone’s favorite mini-Sia clone, Maddie Ziegler accompanied the camera shy singer with her trademark wig, leotard, and interpretive dance routine.  You can watch Sia sing “Elastic Heart” at
