Watch Coldplay Perform at Jimmy Kimmel’s Oscar Aftershow
The reviews from the Academy Awards ceremony last night (Feb. 26) might be mixed, but Jimmy Kimmel certainly seemed to enjoy delivering the post-Oscars show on ABC — and when it came time to top off the evening with a special musical performance, he had help from multi-platinum chart-toppers Coldplay.
The band, currently touring behind its hit album ‘Mylo Xyloto,’ stopped by the Bud Light Stage at ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ to treat the audience to a pair of songs: their latest single, ‘Charlie Brown,’ and their previous hit, ‘Paradise,’ which Kimmel later posted as a Web-only exclusive.
Coldplay’s fifth album to debut at No. 1, ‘Mylo Xyloto’ topped the charts in 30 countries on its way to a first-week tally of 208,000 units — including a record-setting 83,000 digital copies — back in October 2011. It’s gone on to earn a platinum certification in the United States and three Grammy nominations, along with spinning off four hit singles: ‘Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall,’ ‘Paradise,’ ‘Charlie Brown,’ and ‘Princess of China.’
