Dan + Shay Sing on Elmo’s Not-Too-Late Show
Premiering in May of 2020, the Not-Too-Late show was made for kids before bedtime. Of course, it is hosted by everyone's favorite red furry star, Elmo. The show and its host discuss things much like its big brother show, Sesame Street, from various nighttime routines to having musical guests on it, much like the grownups do. The show can be streamed on HBO Max, and you can watch all of them since the beginning in May.
The guests the show has had are not just random one-off stars: Lil Nas X, Jonas Brothers, Kacey Musgraves, and now Dan+Shay. The duo has canceled their 2020 tour due to the current coronavirus situation, but the tour has been rescheduled for 2021. They took the stage Thursday to entertain an audience with an old favorite from 1978, I Don't Want to Live on the Moon.
The song was written by Jeff Moss and was first aired being sung by Ernie in 1978. It was a big deal at the time since the video featured Ernie in a full-body form. According to Muppet Fandom, the video took three operators to get Ernie operating properly. Later on, in 2001, the song was already released in a book.
