Fresh off the announcement that she’ll be opening for Bruno Mars on the incredibly-titled Moonshine Jungle tour, Ellie Goulding performed “Anything Could Happen” on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (February 12). This song has become a fixture of the TV performance circuit at this point, so we’d gotten a little tired of it. But, rocking a Snoball sweater and her signature short shorts, Ellie reinvigorated the track with a lively take.
The Halcyon standout sounded as fresh as ever, thanks in part to a great mix (rare for TV soundstages) that highlighted some piano pounding in the verses and cascading synths during the chorus. Ellie’s enthusiastic give-and-take with the crowd didn’t hurt, either.
