Performance [156] 24-Apr-2018 (TV Show)

The Late Show with Steven Colbert


Grace Vanderwaal brought her infectiously sunshiny attitude to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert … with a moving performance of her latest single "Clearly. Vanderwaal showed she's still effortlessly comfortable on live television, exuding confidence throughout the performance of the inspiring, gospel-tinged track… the teenager let her singing gift "clearly" shine with flying colours.” (April 25, 2018 by Abby Jones, Billboard)

On a TikTok “Q&A” on January 28, 2021, Grace talked about her experience on the show. A fan online asked her “How was it with Steven Colbert. Did u have interaction with him?” Grace answered: “story time – that I will never forget. I didn’t really meet him that much – at all actually. It was just a performance. I walked on to the stage and literally just as I was about to go on, the guys to the side, and I think Steven too – one main crew guy and Steven, they made fun of my dress, and then I was on."
