John Legend, ‘Jimmy Fallon': Singer Covers Springsteen’s ‘Dancing in the Dark’ — Video

Lloyd Bishop, NBC

Bruce Springsteen Week continues on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.’ Following a Kenny Chesney cover of ‘I’m on Fire’ and a performance by the man himself, John Legend and the Roots took the stage last night to perform a cover of ‘Dancing in the Dark,’ Spinner reports. ‘Born in the U.S.A.’ seems to be the album of choice for cover songs this week.

The tune gets the same slow-jammed, jazzed-out treatment that the Roots and Justin Vernon gave to Bon Iver‘s ‘Perth.’ Rather than the propulsive angst of the original, this rendition will make you want to kick off your shoes, sit in your favorite easy chair, and calmly enjoy a nice glass of wine.

Springsteen Week carries on Wednesday night (March 1) when Elvis Costello will take on ‘Brilliant Disguise.’ Tomorrow Bruce and the E Street Band will return to close out the festivities. Until then, watch John Legend and the Roots perform ‘Dancing in the Dark.’
