TONIGHT: Spectacle: Elvis Costello with Smokey Robinson (9pm on Sundance)
The final night of Elvis Costello's interview/performance series features Motown legend Smokey Robinson, who gave the world hits such as "The Tears of a Clown" and "Going to a Go-Go" (soundtrack to one of the best YouTube sensations ever). Robinson and Costello both perform some of the former's hits, interspersed with chatter about musical influences, the Apollo and Berry Gordy. At one point Robinson tells Costello, "You've got a lot of great young singers out there, man, who are the bomb. I love Justin Timberlake." Who doesn't, Smokey?
