The Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne stunned Tv viewers on Wednesday (15May13) when he took to the stage naked for a performance on a U.S. talkshow.

The rocker sang David Bowie's track Heroes and the band's new track Try To Explain wearing nothing but a bizarre 'loincloth' made up of of glowing wires, during a performance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

The eccentric singer later took to his page to post a snap of himself backstage in a pair of pale-coloured underwear, writing, "singing... naked... on the Jimmy Fallon show tonight... yep."

A fully-clothed Coyne later joined singer Demi Lovato, actress Julie Bowen and the show's host for a game of Pictionary.
