Pearl Jam Rock Late Night With Stephen Colbert

(Radio.com) Stephen Colbert's inner music fan has been having quite the time of it since becoming the new host of Late Night. From encouraging collaborations to the types of acts that appear on the show, Colbert and company have been making the news with video after video of fantastic performances. And today is no different.

Pearl Jam sat with Colbert before taking the stage to perform their song "Mind Your Manners" off Lightning Bolt. The crowd, part of which had been set up to stand on the stage for Pearl Jam's performance, immediately launched into chants of "One more song!" when the band wrapped up. Pearl Jam happily complied with "Rockin' in the Free World," Neil Young's classic.

The whole performance quickly left behind the sometimes static late night format and felt far more like watching a rock show. Feeding off the crowd's energy, Eddie Vedder surfed into the audience.

Not one to sit idly by, Colbert jumped up and started dancing with the band before joining Vedder at the mic for the chorus. "Whoo! Calm down. What an honor! You don't get to do that every day," Colbert said once Pearl Jam finished playing. Watch it here.
