It’s a tradition as old as the Johnny Carson show: Most nights, since 1966, bands big and small play on the national stage of late night television. Sometimes good things happen, sometimes bad things happen, but the performances are always worth watching. They’re captivating mostly because they offer the raw sound of a live band and the professional video and audio recording of a late night television show.
With its “lada dida dee” lyrics and its call for endless partying, Miley’s “We Can’t Stop” is making serious bids at being Song of the Summer, especially with its video endorsing – uh – everything. Tune in to see a trademark energetic performance — and how well her video moves translate to real life.
