EL VY and Stay Human Performed “Let’s Dance” on The Late Show as a Touching Bowie Tribute

The Late Show found a way to honor the rock legend with a performance he would surely appreciate—a  creative, funky cover of his 1983 hit “Let’s Dance.”

EL VY and Colbert’s house band Stay Human make a great pairing, and their raucous, tambourine-laden cover of “Let’s Dance” is a fitting tribute. It can sometimes feel like they are straining to keep the song feeling upbeat—but that might be the most touching part.
