Thanks to Hurricane Sandy wreaking havoc on much of Manhattan Monday (October 29), Late Night with Jimmy Fallon taped yesterday’s show without an audience. It was eerie and absurd watching the host deliver punchlines punctuated with a few chuckles from the crew and a whole lot of crickets, and it was equally strange seeing a band perform in a silent room.
But Imagine Dragons‘ “It’s Time” worked well in the empty setting. The hand-claps and stomps gave the performance a revival hall vibe, and with the energy built up at the song’s crescendo, they may as well have been in a packed stadium. Watch it up top.
