Lil Nas X Brings the Heat to Elmo’s Not-Too-Late Show

Wow, that was NOT a headline anyone expected for 2020. But it’s the truth!

Everyone’s favorite furry and red puppet is hosting a late-night show that isn’t so late, after all. Gotta make sure it happens before bedtime, right? So the appropriately-titled “Not-Too-Late Show with Elmo” is doing what all the other shows do: bringing on musical guests!

On Wednesday, May 27th, the show premiered with Kacey Musgraves and Lil Nas X providing the tunes. But don’t expect a sizzling rendition of “Old Town Road” or a performance of Lil Nas’ coming-out anthem “C7osure.”

True to its family-friendly nature, the cowboy-rapper performed, of course, “Elmo’s Song.”

As corny as his appearance might seem, it looks like the “Panini” vocalist had fun with it!

And fun, as Elmo himself would probably tell you, is all that matters.
