Watch: Alanis Morissette's first TV performance ever!

3w ago



Alanis Morissette has become a pop icon thanks to her breakthrough album Jagged Little Pill that was released in 1995. With it being her first album released globally (her relatively unknown first two albums were only released in Canada) and being as huge of a success as it was, there came the inevitable TV appearances and huge shows. I stumbled upon this upload of her first ever TV performance, taken from an episode of David Letterman in 1995, and it's absolutely fantastic! Morissette absolutely gives it her all in this performance, showing the raw intensity that made her such an iconic pop/rock crossover star of the era. The more eagle-eyed amongst you may recognise a familiar face on drums too; rocking it out at the back of the stage is Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters!
