Gallant Makes Auspicious TV Debut With “Weight In Gold” On ‘Fallon’
Rising R&B singer Gallant made an auspicious TV debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night (May 11) with a spectacular performance of “Weight In Gold.” The 24-year-old began the soulful anthem sitting on a sofa in a living room-styled set, before launching to his feet and dancing frenetically. While his stage presence was undeniably charismatic, it’s the buzz artist’s pitch-perfect vocals that really set this apart.
Christopher Gallant (his full name) was rewarded with a standing ovation from a crowd and near-universal online acclaim, something I haven’t seen since Future Islands went viral with their hip-swinging rendition of “Seasons (Waiting On You)” on The Late Show With David Letterman. The newcomer, who also made a huge impression at Coachella, recently dropped his debut LP Ology. Watch his star-making performance up top.
