Chromeo performs "Hot Mess" on Conan

Last night, Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo payed Coco a visit, performing the incredibly awesome "Hot Mess," the third single from their latest album Business Casual. Chromeo have already shown us that they are as amazing on stage as they are on their albums, and this time was no different. Dave-1 (Dave Maklovitch) has his stage presence down, rockin' his Les Paul and drums while P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel) effortlessly plays his synthesizer. If that wasn't enough, the sexy female police officers from the "Hot Mess" video came along for the show, providing back up vocals. Sit back, relax, and watch a performance that is most definitely hot and anything but messy.
