John Legend and the Roots

If they chose to cover this song the other night at Terminal 5 because they knew it would get blogged about, good idea (though maybe the idea was just related to the name of their new album). Spike Lee-directed live video from the show, below...

this cover is done in a very predictable way, and quite frankly - sucks. questlove and the roots sound great and everything, but a little more effort would be appreciated by such a cast.

They played it better than Arcade Fire to be honest.

I agree with 2:40. That is the best song on the album.
