For the fourth year in a row, Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones have turned the year’s biggest songs into holiday classics for Thanksgiving, Chanukah and Christmas. This year’s medley included Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood, Rihanna’s Bitch Better Have My Money, Silento’s Watch Me, Drake’s Hotline Bling and Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk to name a few. But the last one had a nice surprise because Eric Nally joined them for Downtown, I mean North Pole! The only song they were missing was Shut Up and Eat, I mean Dance by Walk the Moon.
Hopefully in 2016, the two of them record Season’s Greetings album, so they can we have full length versions of the songs that will be playing in our houses from Thanksgiving to New Year’s.
Adele was a guest on The Tonight Show the other night and Jimmy Fallon asked her to perform her song Hello with The Roots using just classroom instruments and she said yes. Now, if you are like me, then you wondered how they are going to do that because the school instruments would make the ballad more upbeat. It does, and it somehow works brilliantly. But then again can Adele do any wrong?
The best part about this version of the chart topper, is that it is one time you won’t cry when you listen to it.
And on that note, could you imagine being in that small room and hearing her angelic voice in a confined space like that. They probably felt like they were transported to heaven when she reached the chorus. I know I would.
James McAvoy was on The Tonight Show yesterday and he told Jimmy Fallon how much his son likes to sit on his shoulders and the tyke likes to rub his hands all over his dad’s nearly bald head. Then Charles Xavier asked the NBC host if he wanted to try it. Without thinking, both men agreed to do it. Then a plan was devised as Fallon got up on his desk and sat on McAvoy’s shoulders. After a few seconds, they realized it was a really bad idea but it was too late. Thankfully, McAvoy, who is a few inches shorter, was able to put his partner down uninjured. And with Fallon, that is a really important things these days.
BTW did you notice the bandage is off his right ring finger?
Daniel Radcliffe was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a game of Water War. Basically, they play the card game war, but the loser of each round gets a glass of water poured or thrown on them. Well, Harry Potter found the game quite magical. So much so, that every time someone lost a round, Radcliffe couldn’t stop laughing. He laughed harder when he won, but he didn’t stop when he was all wet. His giggling put such a spell on me, I was giggling along with him. Did he put the same spell on you too?
Everyone knows the all the lyrics to Alanis Morissette’s Ironic, even chickens. Yesterday, on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon proved that point when he, along with Alanis Morissette and Meghan Trainor, dressed up as chickens and clucked out the iconic song Ironic. From now on, that is how I am going to belt out the song. I just hope I don’t lay an egg.
As we all know, Will Forte has grown a very impressive, thick, wild beard for his Fox show The Last Man on Earth and he is afraid what might be in it. What he is most afraid of is that there might be poop hidden in there. Yesterday, when he was on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon got the contents of his beard analyzed. What they found is shocking, but there is some good news. There is no poop in it.
So the only sh!tty thing attached to him is that movie MacGruber he did that was the end all for Saturday Night Live big screen movies.
Jimmy Fallon and falling seem to go hand in hand this year. Back in June, he fell in his kitchen, got his wedding ring stuck on something and nearly severed off his finger. A few weeks later, he chipped his tooth while trying to open some medicine. Yesterday, while being honored by Harvard Lampoon, he tripped and fell over someone who suddenly knelled in front of him according to People. The Tonight Show host injured his hand and was rushed to the hospital. Once his right hand was bandaged up, he returned the party and continued greeting his fans. Proving that the show must go on.
Poor Jimmy, this is the second time this year that he fell, injured his hand and was rushed to the hospital while he was on hiatus from the show. If I were him, I wouldn’t allow his NBC show to have any more time off this year. Although on a positive note, he doesn’t have any more hands to injure since he injured the two that he has.
In all seriousness, let’s hope he gets better real soon.
UPDATE: Jimmy Fallon just posted a photo of his injured right hand and says it was “nothing that a few band-aids couldn’t fix!”
UPDATE 2: A source from the show tells me that The Tonight Show will go on tomorrow as scheduled. I am sure he will tell us what happened in his monologue.
Jimmy Fallon dressed up as Donald Trump again yesterday on The Tonight Show and this time he had a special guest help him out. That special guest is David Alan Grier and he played Ben Carson. The two of them were on the phone watching the Democratic Debate and they made jokes about all of the people running against them. They even made fun of the people they were portraying. The Cowardly Lion was so good at playing Carson, I fell asleep watching this bit at least 6 times.
So lie back and watch and nap and then watch as the two of them sat some hysterical things about the jokes who are running for President.
Jimmy Fallon shared a photo of himself with Selena Gomez and both of them are smiling. Only thing is, they both had lipstick on their teeth, which makes me wonder if they have something to tell us? Nope she was a guest on The Tonight Show yesterday, but imagine if they did. They would be the sweetest and cutest couple in Hollywood.
Jimmy Fallon told a joke on The Tonight Show yesterday that caused him a little discomfort and he needed to stop. Since the show must go on, he wanted to see if there was anyone that could fill in for him. Luckily, Jay Leno was available and took over the monologue.
This was not the Leno we used to know, he was a lot more risque and I liked it. Too bad he couldn’t have been that way when he had the show the first and second time. Wonder if the third one will be the charm. Joking, that ship has sailed. Or has it?
Actually, it is amazing how much late night television has changed since Leno left the show just a year and a half ago. All because of Fallon, if you think about it.
