Watch Coldplay Perform ‘Paradise’ + ‘Charlie Brown’ on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’
After the 2012 Oscars came to a close, Jimmy Kimmel continued the festivities with a post-Academy Awards special featuring live performances from British rockers Coldplay. Standing upon an illuminated stage with instruments in hand, Chris Martin, Johnny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion had fans screaming and dancing along as they played their new single 'Charlie Brown' and 'Paradise.'
Keeping up with the fluorescent, paint-splattered theme of 'Mylo Xyloto,' Coldplay performed in front of a vibrant stage setup -- the stage was complete with bright orbs of lights, colorful guitars, and a graffiti-covered platform upon which drummer Will Champion sat whilst decked out in a day glow-spotted white T-shirt. As usual, Martin's voice sounded amazing as did the instrumentation from the rest of Coldplay.
While 'Charlie Brown' featured fiery red lights, the guys turned down the tempo and turned up the black lights for their dreamy, anthemic track 'Paradise.' The crowd was pumped during 'Charlie Brown,' with Martin leading the crowd as they jumped with the music. However, 'Paradise' really got their fans going as they sang along with Martin's falsetto on the "para-para-paradise" chorus, with everyone (including the rest of Coldplay) chanting along during the epic "oh-oh-oh-oh-oh" portion of the hook. Yet another stellar performance from the Coldplay guys.
