'AHS: Freak Show' First Look: See Evan Peters cover Nirvana

Posted on

American Horror Story Evan Peters
FX

Some of American Horror Story: Freak Show‘s most talked-about moments this season have been the Baz Luhrmann-esque musical numbers, like Jessica Lange’s cover of David Bowie’s “Life on Mars” or Sarah Paulson’s version of Fiona Apple’s “Criminal.” Another major modern artist is covered in tonight’s installment of AHS—Evan Peters, who plays Jimmy Darling, croons Nirvana’s classic “Come As You Are.” It’s part of a crucial episode for Jimmy (and for Peters, who’s excellent) as well as Michael Chiklis’ Dell Toledo.

And there’s more music to come: Kathy Bates—yes Kathy Bates—will be doing Hole’s “Doll Parts” in an upcoming episode.  As Ryan Murphy explained to EW, “We decided we only were going to highlight musical artists who at some point in their career had identified themselves as feeling like freaks or misfits or outcasts, which our people are going through.”

American Horror Story: Freak Show airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. on FX.
