While Stephen Colbert and Matthew Broderick dueted on a My Fair Lady classic, the official musical moment of Friday’s Late Show was a performance by Kacey Musgraves

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, backed by her bandmates in white jackets, performed the calming “Late to the Party” in front of a sparkling backdrop. Musgraves teased the gig on Instagram earlier, writing, “Don’t be Late to the Party.”

The song is track three on her album Pageant Material, most of which she recorded live.

“ ‘Pageant Material’ is a satirical song poking fun of myself for being a real human. After writing [it] I could instantly see this hazy, slightly off-kilter, retro pageant world,” she told EW. “I’m a super visual person and I thought not only that it was a great song but that it would make for great aesthetic, especially because I come from the South.”
