Late-night variety shows require a host with various talents — fortunately for CBS, Stephen Colbert is one versatile dude.

The “Late Show” host joined Pearl Jam for a performance of Neil Young’s ‘Rockin’ in the Free World” on Wednesday after a raucous, standing crowd convinced the Seattle grunge band to play an encore.

While Colbert won’t be winning any Grammys for vocals — especially next to Eddie Vedder — the comic can hold his own and carry a tune.

Colbert’s other guests last night at 11:35 p.m. were Hugh Jackman, Hugh Evans, and Elizabeth Warren.
