On the eve of their potentially universe-altering Prince tribute concert, actress/soul diva Maya Rudolph and The Roots regaled Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night with their cover of the iconic “Darling Nikki”. Bathed in orange stage lights, Roots-dolph, accompanied by Rudolph’s BFF/Princess bandmate Gretchen Lieberum, kept their rendition straightforward, recreating the oh-so crucial backward part while maintaining Prince-approved levels of funk.
