Babymetal Perform ‘Gimme Chocolate!!’ on ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’
Babymetal made their first ever U.S. television appearance last night (April 5) on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
To celebrate the group’s new album, Metal Resistance, Babymetal performed live on Colbert. Backed by their full band, the Japanese teen girl trio busted out “Gimme Chocolate!!” from the act’s 2014 self-titled debut.
Babymetal absolutely nailed “Gimme Chocolate!!” live. The girls were flawless with their choreography, delivering dance moves at a lightning-quick pace. Babymetal’s instrumental section performed with insane precision as well, with the lead guitarist showcasing impressive skills during the solo for “Gimme Chocolate!!”
We can’t imagine what most of Colbert’s at-home audience must have thought of Babymetal, but the online crowd that’s watched the performance on Colbert’s YouTube channel has been praising Babymetal’s U.S. television debut.
