ABC'S "JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE" TO DEBUT MUSICAL "MASH UP MONDAYS" STARTING FEBRUARY 2
Beginning February 2, ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" will debut its new take on the show's musical performances with "Mash Up Mondays." Every Monday in February, once-in-a-lifetime musical performances will be created showcasing two artists paired up to form one unlikely supergroup.
Alternative music pioneers Weezer & rock legends ZZ Top kick things off on Monday, February 2 under the new name Jimmy has coined for them -- "Wee-Z Top." Monday, February 9 will feature "Morris Day and the HAIM" -- a mash up of legendary funk group Morris Day & The Time with pop-rock sisters HAIM. Monday, February 16 brings "Aloe Blaccstreet," coupling soul sensation Aloe Blacc and R&B hit-makers Blackstreet.
This creative blending of music artists and genres continues Jimmy Kimmel Live's long-standing dedication to innovative musical performances. The show has a thirteen year tradition of epic concerts, closing down Hollywood Boulevard for performances by such artists as Justin Timberlake, Paul McCartney, Jay-Z and most recently Taylor Swift, plus creating original songs and music videos, e.g. "Channing All Over Your Tatum," the "I'm F*@#ing" series and "Josh Groban sings Kanye West Tweets."
"Jimmy Kimmel Live" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format. Jimmy Kimmel and Jill Leiderman serve as executive producers. Jason Schrift, Douglas DeLuca and Erin Irwin serve as co-executive producers. Emmy Award-winning "Jimmy Kimmel Live" is shot live in front of a studio audience and produced by Jackhole Industries in association with ABC Studios. (CLOSED- CAPTIONED)
