is recorded daily in NYC at the Ed Sullivan studio on Broadway, in front of a live audience. Die Antwoord was the musical guest for the episode that also had former Buffy the Vampire Slayer
star Sarah Michelle Gellar on the line-up.
Before they recorded the show, Ninja told Die Burger that it's difficult to say why Americans like them so much.
One of the things that made American audiences so different from local audiences, he said, was that they did not understand Afrikaans swear words.

performance will be broadcast in South Africa on Sony Entertainment Television, DStv channel 113, on Tuesday February 14 at 23:15.
According to Die Burger, Die Antwoord fever was running high in the US with Ninja and fellow band member Yo-Landi "Vi$$er" being the faces of fashion designer Alexander Wang's new range. Huge billboards of the two had been erected in New York.Watch Die Antwoord's performance on Letterman here:
