“Mash Up Mondays” begin in February
Beginning February 2nd, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live will debut its new take on the show’s musical performances with “Mash Up Mondays.” Every Monday in February, once-in-a-lifetime musical performances will be created showcasing two artists paired up to form one unlikely supergroup.
Alternative music pioneers Weezer & rock legends ZZ Top kick things off on Monday, February 2nd under the new name Kimmel has coined for them — “Wee-Z Top.” Monday, February 9th will feature “Morris Day and the HAIM” — a mash up of legendary funk group Morris Day & The Time with pop-rock sisters HAIM. Monday, February 16th brings “Aloe Blaccstreet,” coupling soul sensation Aloe Blacc and R&B hit-makers Blackstreet.
This creative blending of music artists and genres continues Jimmy Kimmel Live’s long-standing dedication to innovative musical performances. The show has a thirteen year tradition of epic concerts, closing down Hollywood Boulevard for performances by such artists as Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney, Jay-Z and most recently Taylor Swift, plus creating original songs and music videos, e.g. “Channing All Over Your Tatum,” the “I’m F*@#ing” series and “Josh Groban sings Kanye West Tweets.”
