    Televised concerts don't count. Has to be from a TV show (Letterman, SNL, Leno, etc.). Music shows like ACL or Jools Holland don't count either. And no lip syncing allowed!

    Oh Kanye, what happened to ye?

    Just a complete awesome performance at the Grammy's over 10 years ago. :(

    <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/PAWWBBOvqQc" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Nnd his next performance at the Grammys was incredible too. Does "Stronger" with Daft Punk and then a pretty touching version of "Hey Mama" shortly after his mom passed away.

    REM's first appearance on Letterman - and the greatest song they've ever sung..

    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Ykp0Vq77IBw" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


    Morrissey on the Tonight Show - Not really a fan of these songs..but it takes some balls to sing "There's a Place in Hell for Me and My Friends" for your first appearance on the Tonight Show (which was a HUGE show at the time for the parental-age people)

    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/53YpKH4DMf0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    and of course - Elvis Costello on SNL - the song that got him banned from SNL "Radio, Radio" Good luck finding the video

    My favorite musical performance on TV. I remember watching this
    thinking "Holy S!@#!!!" They killed the ending.

    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/olBWaIW2Y44" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    My favorite R&B group The Spinners (Yes I'm old) showing how to open a musical ceremony.

    From the short lived TV series Night Music.

    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/1hYqvtHzr48" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


    There are some videos I couldn't find. Elvis Costello's first appearance on
    SNL, The Replacements on SNL. Graham Parker acoustic on an A&E morning
    show.

    And can't find the complete video of what had to be an error in booking or
    Dinah Shore was a closet Bowie fan.

    Sonic Youth's Network Television Debut on Letterman...always make me think of that scene from Back to the Future..."I guess you guys aren't ready for that yet. But your kids are gonna love it."

    FEAR!!! What a great band, I Love Livin' In the City has always been a favorite but they've got a ton of great songs.

    Eddie Van Halen sitting in with Letterman's band in 85, Johnny Carson was a guest that night:

    <iframe width="420" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/HYLmngZjEqE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    The Chili Peppers SNL, Frusciante intentionally sabotages Under the Bridge due to his dislike of the band's then-growing popularity and he tries to throw Kiedis off with the intro:

    A lot of great ones already mentioned. I'll try and go with a couple not mentioned.

    That got Costello banned from SNL for more than a decade.

    It also prompted one of my other favorite live appearances.
