Idolator's editors choose their favorite tunes from this year!

As part of the promotional run for her latest Sucker LPCharli XCX stopped by Late Show With David Letterman last night (December 16) to perform a deep cut off the record — “Need Ur Luv.” Instead of entertaining the audience with one of her rowdier singles, the UK rebel chose the final track from her new project.

For the late show performance, Charli was joined by Vampire Weekend‘s Rostam Batmanglij on piano. While I stated “Need Ur Luv” was one of the weaker tracks from the album in my review, the singer managed to pull off the kitschy tune live. It was a red light (well, pink actually) special kind of display, as the singer donned a classic lingerie set and sky-high platforms while performing the song. Stay tuned until the end to see David Letterman gift Charli with a “naughty” toy!
