Desiigner performs on colbert, grey-haired woman in the front row can’t get enough
For a while, my favorite Desiigner performance was when, last month, he threw up onstage and then continued rapping, barely missing a rhyme, continuing to dab incessantly as if nothing had happened.
That moment now has some stiff competition, after the 19-year-old rapper performed his chart-topper “Panda” Wednesday night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. And it’s not just because of what Desiigner himself actually does — though he provides another memorable moment when he throws the mic up in the air and almost doesn’t catch it, in addition to his usual extraordinary energy.
The highlight of this performance, instead, was the crowd shot. As with many late night shows, the audience here was was probably made up of a healthy mix of out-of-towners and locals, whose ages swayed closer to Colbert’s than Desiigner’s. Demographic stereotypes didn’t stop the grey-haired, bespectacled, beaming, clapping, bobbing woman in the front row from having what appeared to be the time of her life.
There she is, at the bottom left of your screen.
That’s The Desiigner Effect, folks.
