Jimmy Fallon challenged Blake Lively to a game of Say Anything on The Tonight Show yesterday. Basically one person says a word and then the other person says another word until one of them stumbles or goes blank. The loser of each round has to get Scotch tape put on their face by the winner. Well, the NBC late host lost all three rounds and the Gossip Girl made him look like he should be on Botched. You know, like he got some really bad plastic surgery.
Madonna was on The Tonight Show yesterday and she told Jimmy Fallon she is a closet comedian. So the NBC late night host told the musician to try some of her standup on the show right then and there. For the first time in decades, she had her cherry popped by telling jokes about all the younger men she’s been dating recently. Her jokes were so bad, it made her latest album sound as good as Like A Virgin.
So down a pitcher of watered down beer or several Long Island Iced Teas and maybe you will think she is funny. You know, practice the same method you would at a comedy club to make those comedians funny.
Jimmy Fallon and The Roots performed Holiday with Madonna and some classroom instruments on tonight’s The Tonight Show. What more can you say about their performance of one of her earlier hits, but that it was totally bitchin’.
Yesterday on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon and Kat Dennings played a game of charades with Michael Douglas and Jon Cryer and things got interesting when Duckie got his own movie. That’s right, the Two and a Half Men star got Pretty in Pink. You’d think it be easy for him to act out his most famous film and you’d be wrong. He tried, but the Wall Street star just couldn’t get it. His opponents knew what he was doing, but not his partner. That makes you wonder what was Douglas doing in the ’80s or should I say who wasn’t he doing when that movie came out?
Ricky Gervais was on The Tonight Show last week, and Jimmy Fallon asked him if he had ever been to the White House. He had been once and of course there was an interesting bed time story to go with it.
He was in Washington DC for the premiere of one the Night at the Museum movies and he was getting his suit cleaned. The phone rang and it was Ben Stiller informing him that they were invited to go to the White House right then and there. Since he didn’t have anything to wear but the clothes on his back, he went in them. Only problem it was his pajamas. Thankfully for him, they were a nice black pair and no one noticed. At least they didn’t tell him they did.
Too bad, they weren’t cotton ones with pink bunnies on them. How awesome would that have been?
Oh and he also told a story about how he peed on his girlfriend the first time he slept over at her house.
Helen Mirren was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon commented on how proper her accent sounds. He then wanted to see if it sounded just as elegant if she downed some helium. When he asked her about it, her reaction is so precious you will love her even more. It was a like a little girl being all bashful when she is sweetly embarrassed about something.
Once she was done being all shy about the offer, she grabbed the balloon and tried it out. Even though her voice was high and squeaky, it still sounded dignified.
Only Mirren could make something like sucking on balloon seem classy. If I try it, I sound like an imbecile. How do you sound when you get into the helium?
Jimmy Fallon is the dreamy guy of late night, but yesterday he did something on The Tonight Show that will cause people to have nightmares including himself.
He introduced not one, not two, not three, not four but five wax versions of himself and together they sang Barbara Ann. To watch six stiffs sing the song like that is just as creepy as those mannequin ads from Old Navy; and remember how those commercials gave you nightmares? Well, the NBC late night brought that feeling back. Thankfully, he is suffering just as much as we are. The only one who got out of this unscathed is Questlove, so maybe he is the roots of all evil???
Last week, Kelly Clarkson made a joke that she has a problem finding a duet partner. Well Jimmy Fallon took her seriously and he decided to be the Kenny Rogers to her Dolly Parton or the Sonny Bono to her Cher. Yesterday, when she was on The Tonight Show, the two of them did not sing just one classic song from a duo. Instead they mashed up several duets to make one of the greatest duets of all time.
I say one of because there were two of the biggest duets missing from theirs. Those chart toppers are Ike & Tina Turner’s Proud Mary and Meat Loaf’s Paradise in the Dashboard Light. Who hasn’t sung the last song at a bar with a guy they just met there or with all of their drunk friends? I can’t remember a time in college when I didn’t. Can you?
Forgetting that, how rockin’ their duet? So much so, I hope they release an album full of duets called From Jimmy To Kelly!!!
We all know that Christina Aguilera can sing, that is why she got Grammys’ Best New Artist over Britney Spears. But did you know she can sing like Britney Spears? She does a better Britney than Britney. Yesterday on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, she demonstrated her imitation skills and they will blow you away more than her high notes.
Not only can Xtina be Toxic, she can also turn back time to sound like her Burlesque co-star, Cher. Not impressed yet, she can shake her hips, I mean her voice, to sound like her Voice replacement Shakira.
She is so good, forget Neil Patrick Harris getting a Variety show on NBC; she should be the one getting one. Wouldn’t you tune in for it?
Did you know that Taylor Swift and Jimmy Fallon are notorious in NY Sports World? Not for their athletic ability, but because the two of them are always getting caught on the Jumbrotron shaking their groove things. Yesterday on The Tonight Show, the NBC late night shared their best of dancing moments and Cotton Eye Joe would be proud of their Do-Si-Do.
