Michael Kiwanuka is spellbinding

I was lucky enough to catch up with Michael Kiwanuka for a quick chat yesterday, just before he made his debut performance on Later... With Jools Holland. His biggest concern was not the performance, or the pressure of appearing after Bjork (who was suitably mental). No, he was worried that Jools would get his name wrong. Apparently, teachers used to call him all sorts of things, from Michael Kawasaki to Michael Kenkenkenken.

Luckily, Jools had been practising in his dressing room and the public were correctly introduced to an incredible young artist. I swear, he is practising actual magic in this performance. Simply stunning.

Michael Kiwanuka - I'm Getting Ready (Later performance)

If you tune in to the main edition of Later, this Friday night, Michael will pop up again doing an entirely different tune. My advice: record it and skip through the Red Hot Chili Peppers to get to the good bit.
