Noah Kahan sprinkled some Guts into his debut performance at BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge.

For his first-ever Live Lounge set, he of course performed “Stick Season,” and he also played an Olivia Rodrigo album track: the ballad “Lacy.”

“Lacy, oh Lacy, skin like puff pastry/ Aren’t you the sweetest thing on this side of hell?/ Dear angel Lacy, eyes white as daisies/ Did I ever tell you that I’m not doin’ well?” Kahan sweetly sang Thursday (Nov. 23), backed by his band and backup singers.

Kahan’s dreamy cover of “Lacy” comes soon after Rodrigo paid a compliment to him by performing one of his songs. In October, Rodrigo included a cover of Kahan’s breakthrough hit during her Live Lounge set.


“Is this real,” tweeted a shocked Kahan had tweeted after seeing Rodrigo’s version of “Stick Season.”

The singer-songwriter will soon be making another debut, as the musical guest for Saturday Night Live on the Emma Stone-hosted Dec. 2 episode.

“Snl snl snl oh my god,” he wrote the day the SNL lineup was announced. Then he shared, “I’ll never forget taking a piss next to the man who was hosting the open mic that I’d just played. He said ‘it’s a real tough business and I’ve seen lots of talented people not make it’ I’d never felt so hopeless about my career. I wonder who I’ll piss next to at SNL??”

Watch Kahan make “Lacy” his own below, and check out his latest live performance of “Stick Season.”

The Beaches Bring "Blame Brett" to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

The Toronto quartet brought their viral single into their late night TV debut.

Following the viral success of "Blame Brett" in 2023, The Beaches have made their late night TV debut, performing their naming-and-blaming single on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Though the Toronto band has been together for a decade, winning a 2018 Juno for Breakthrough Artist following their debut album, last yearmarked a watershed moment for the quartet. They traded their heavier rock sound for sleek new wave guitar tones and took back control of their career, deciding to release their new album, Blame My Ex, independently. (They co-wrote the album with Canadian artist and songwriter Lowell, who also has a credit on Beyoncé's newest hit.)
