Macklemore, Skylar Grey and Budo bring that solo Seattle flavor to national television.
Following an absolutely glowing introduction from host Jimmy Fallon and his mustache, Macklemore began the promo push for his forthcoming Budo-produced solo album with the television debut of his single “Glorious.” Joined by Skylar Grey and Budo (of Grieves and Budo fame) and backed by quite the powerful choir, Macklemore kept things animated and inspiring as only he can.
There’s a lot going on in this performance, from Skylar Grey’s singing and piano-playing to Budo’s live percussion to Macklemore rapping while conducting. Upon completion, they received a standing ovation from the live studio audience.
