Details from people who were at the taping
They shuffled us into the little studio and Tori's small bosey was in there. The were taping Tori's portion to be part of the show that will air later and then right after that they taped a wholehour for tonight's episode. (I wasn't at the Craig Kilborn taping in 2001, but I think this was a similar deal.) Anyway, about five or ten minutes after they seated us, they announced Tori, we cheered, and she came out, waved, and did a beautiful solo version of Sleeps with Butterflies. I really love Butterflies solo....she took a big pause after the first verse/chorus and for a minute I thought she was going to start over, but she went on to the next verse. She looked very cute - black pants, and a black jacket-type thing over a green shirt, what looked to be the same green color she had on last night at Tower. It was very quick, but lovely :) she waved goodbye and was gone... oh, one thing that was cute was the guy who was warming up the audience was joking about all the free stuff they were going to give away and as Tori sat down at the piano, he said that they were going to give away Tori's piano ;) she heard himjoking and kind of looked up and said something like, "you're promising an awful lot!" So after Tori, we taped a full episode that airs tonight with Drew Carey, an author - Lawrence Block I think - and a sketch trio from the UK. I enjoyed that even though Tori wasn't there ;) Craig Ferguson was pretty funny and it was a fun time.
Just wanted to let you know I went to the Late Late show w/CF taping. Tori played Sleeps w/Butterflies solo. No band. It was really really gorgeous. It almost got me teary-eyed! She was the first one to come on. She just played the song, waved goodbye and left. Ferguson did not interview her, which I was totally expecting, but it's still disappointing. The performance however, was amazing. The rest of the show is airing tonight but the Tori portion as you know, will not be airing until the date you posted.
She performed "Sleeps With Butterflies" solo for us! And it was great!
