There's no video to be found at the moment of Erykah Badu's performance alongside The Roots on Friday night's episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon anywhere we know of on the Internet, which sucks. (What gives NBC?)
But there's this: Over the weekend, Questlove, The Roots' drummer, posted to his Twitter page this free mp3 recording of his band and Erykah doing their best MJ on "I Wanna Be Where You Are."
The fact that it was recorded while "funnin" and sneaking around before the show, notwithstanding. Download to computer and upload to iPod, ASAP.
