You probably know the name Maggie Rogers
by now. Last year, the 22-year-old blew Pharrell's mind after showing him her demo while he was critiquing students work at NYU. Since then, she's been a viral internet sensation and last night, Rogers made her television debut on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon
performing her first single, "Alaska."
When the first beat of the music started, Rogers was radiating confidence as she swayed back and forth behind her mic. Her vocals were strong and mesmerizing - almost sounding better than the recording - and you could tell she was trying to bottle up her dance as her arms and legs kept moving. But once the chorus hits, she grabs the mic and did her free-spirited dance all over the stage in her fringed blazer and embroidered blue jeans.
Her EP Now That The Light Is Fading
is out now. We've already heard the singles Alaska, Dog Years, and On + Off but there are two more songs to get lost in.
