“Minuit Chrétiens” (Live On Fallon) (Video)

    Rufus Wainwright teamed up with the Roots on Jimmy Fallon’s show last night, where they collectively helped to usher in the holiday season with a version of “Minuit Chrétiens.” Questlove and co. don’t have a great deal to do for much of this adaptation of the famous French poem; instead they simply provide a suitably hushed backing that allows Wainwright to deliver a convincingly emotive performance. Wainwright has a new Mark Ronson produced album titled Out of the Game due in the spring, although it’s unlikely that this performance offers much of a glimpse of its style, Nice scarf, though.
