It’s been a whirlwind few months for Claire Boucher, aka Grimes. Visions is already being heralded as one of the best of the year, and the young Canadian artist has been shortlisted for her country’s prestigious Polaris Prize.
Last night, Grimes continued her victory lap by making her U.S. television debut on (what else?) Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. Dressed in some sort of bathrobe/kimono, Boucher looked utterly alone on that stage, accompanied only by a synth, mixer, some interpretive dancers, and flower petals. But she turned “Genesis” into a big moment, surely winning over even more fans. Watch the performance below.
