Jimmy Fallon celebrated his 38th birthday Wednesday by having his friend and ‘Saturday Night Live’ alum Maya Rudolph as a guest on ‘Late Night.’ During the interview, Maya talked about how she and friend always wanted to start a Prince cover band, but only recently had the time to do it after having 5 kids between the two of them. So what better way to debut Princess than on Jimmy’ show where they were backed by The Roots.
This might be the first time that “Darling Nikki” has been performed uncensored on television. I say might because the Foo Fighters and Cee Lo covered the raunchy song during that god awful VMAs back in 2007. Either way, it was awesome and I hope to hear more from Princess. Maya is mostly known for being a comedic actress but she has dabbled in music, outside of Whitney Houston skits on SNL, check out her duet with Matt Sharp of The Rentals called “Not Tonight.”
