Sunday, 10:03 p.m., ChefDance: Singer-songwriter Edei, who just released her new single “I’ll Go”, performed a couple of songs for guests dining on a meal by Chef Shawn Armstrong.

The Girls star enjoyed a kale salad and meatballs from L.A. Restaurant Animal. She also stopped by the McDonald’s McCafé Lounge, wearing a fun sweater.
