This week's schedule

Dido is back with her first album in five years (Still On My Mind), and so we'll see her perform on The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday night (UPDATE, March 26: Dido's appearance on Corden appears to have been cancelled), and again on Live with Kelly & Ryan on Thursday.

The lineup on this week's Jimmy Kimmel Live! hews fairly closely to New Hot and NPR Music's discoveries, with performances by Rodrigo y Gabriela, Durand Jones & the Indications, and Billie Eilish on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. Meanwhile, CBS This Morning's Saturday Sessions are in the second of a three-week run featuring artists who visited The Current in Austin, Texas, during the 2019 SXSW music festival: last week, it was Yola; this week, New York sibling trio BAILEN visit the CBS morning staple.

A highly notable rerun this week is the encore of Janelle Monáe's full-hour set on Austin City Limits, which originally aired on Nov. 17, 2018.
