Paramore Gets Theatrical During 'Rose-Colored Boy' Performance on 'The Late Show': Watch
For those who don't see through rose-colored glasses, perhaps Paramore's latest television appearance will alter your outlook. The rock band brought their vibrant demeanor to the set of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night (May 1), whipping up a characteristically whimsical rendition of their most recent single, "Rose-Colored Boy."
An anonymous hand in front of the camera counted down the seconds before the song's introduction, revealing a timid-looking frontwoman Hayley Williams sitting on host Colbert's desk as it pulled away. The singer's nervousness was clearly just a put-on -- and a nod to the song's fake newsroom video -- as the singer belted out the bouncy tune with ease. Williams kept up the vulnerable, kooky act as she joined the band on an aptly rose-colored stage setup, twitching along to the irresistibly danceable track while flipping around her wet-look asymmetrical hair. The song's 1980s inspiration was brought to life through the bright colors and outfits sported by the band members, with Williams rocking a Kermit-the-frog-green blazer and bold blue eyeshadow.
"Rose-Colored Boy" comes from Paramore's fifth studio album, After Laughter, which was released May 2017. The band is currently embarking on their After Laughter world tour, and recently wrapped up the third round of their Parahoy! concert cruises, featuring supporting acts Local Natives, Judah and the Lion and more.
