Kelis & Stephen Colbert Invade The Late Show With David Letterman

The Late Show Hosted Kelis & Stephen Colbert On Tuesday Night, Where The Singer Performed & Dave's Successor Read Off A Top Ten List Of Cocktails For Santa

Kelis hit the stage on the Late Show With David Letterman last night to perform “Jerk Ribs” from her FOOD LP while Stephen Colbert sat for a chat with Dave, which found him reading a Top Ten list that he submitted for a writing job on the show in 1997. Colbert’s appearance on the show follows news of his impending Late Show takeover following Letterman’s planned retirement in 2015. Stephen Colbert presented a list of the “Top Ten Cocktails For Santa” and also found time to take a selfie with Dave. Meanwhile, Kelis took the bandstand by storm with an awesome performance of the lead single from her latest project, which dropped this week. Check the footage below to watch Colbert’s chat with David Letterman. Scroll down to check out Kelis’ performance. Purchase the FOOD LP via iTunes. Stay tuned for more.
