The Minneapolis musician chose his "biggest, strangest" song "Bubblin'" from his latest album, Heart Murmurs, for the appearance. His touring band and a string quartet intermingled sumptuously on the arrangement reminiscent of Aimee Mann's collaborations with producer Jon Brion. If there were any nerves present for this career-changing moment -- even bigger than a signature doughnut -- they didn't show up on camera.
