Alanis Morissette covers Green Day on Jimmy Kimmel

Alanis Morissette filled in for Green Day with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel’s show Wednesday night.

Green Day have shut down live appearances and promotions for their newly-released album, “Uno,” after singer Billie Joe Armstrong entered rehab following his on stage meltdown in Las Vegas last Friday night.

“Billie Joe is seeking treatment for substance abuse,” posted the band on Sunday. “We would like everyone to know that our set was not cut short by Clear Channel and to apologize to those we offended at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas. We regretfully must postpone some of our upcoming promotional appearances.”

Morissette stepped in to appear on Kimmel’s program; she’s currently on a North American tour in support of her new album, “Havoc and Bright Lights.”

Alanis performed her current single, “Guardian,” as well as a cover of Green Day’s “Basket Case,” which she finished by saying “We love you, Billie Joe.”
