Colbert teased the appearance earlier this week when he showed up on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, dancing his way over to Fallon's desk while "Get Lucky" played over the PA. "I don't know what just happened," Fallon said when it was over.

Last year's "Colbchella" event, dubbed "RocktAugustFest," featured the Flaming Lips, fun., Santigold, and Grizzly Bear. The previous year's iteration, "Rock You Like a Thirst-Icane," included Jack White, Bon Iver, Florence and the Machine and Talib Kweli.

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
