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.
We are days away from the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey movie and NBC late night thought it would be fun to have men read from the book.
Jimmy Fallon started it off on The Tonight Show by reading lines from the book in different accents with Christian Grey himself, Jamie Dornan.
Once we were done hearing their fake accents it was time for Late Night with Seth Meyers to take it to the streets of Manhattan and have several men there read from the best selling book since the bible. Their expressions as they say each word aloud is better than anything that can happen in the movie. Although, probably not as funny as anything that will happen in the film that has 20 minutes of sex.
Will Smith was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon and him, with the help of an iPad app, rocked out to It Takes Two by Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock.
Proving that the rap anthem can be belted out whenever by whoever wherever they want and it will make people happy. That’s because we all know every word and can’t wait to shout out with everyone that is around us.
Granted I grew up in The Bronx and I always thought this was our song and I am representing home when I sing it. So sing along with them and know I am singing along with you because I can’t get the tune out of my head.
Ever since Jimmy Fallon hosted The Late Show on NBC, he has tried his hardest to facilitate a Saved By the Bell reunion to no avail. I asked him about a year ago, now that he was going to be taking over The Tonight Show if he would try to make that dream come true. He told me, “OMG! I gave up on that. I got bored with that one.”
That was then, and this is now. Tonight, the halls of Bayside High are alive again because it happened! It really really happened. Mark Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley, Tiffani Amber Thiessen and Dennis Haskins schooled the host about what it was like to be on SBTB and it is like totally awesome!
That’s right Zack, Kelly, Slater and Jessie put on their acid wash jeans and Mr Belding suited up for the occasion and not one of them has aged a day since they graduated from the roles that will forever be a part of childhoods.
I could tell you more about it, but you need to appreciate it for the masterpiece that is. There are so many dope moments in the nearly 9 minute bit that you want to drink them all up. Elizabeth Berkley said it best when she Tweeted to Fallon, “thank you for making this joyful moment for everyone happen! You brought us all back to an innocent time.” It truly was and I am glad for a little bit of time today, we were all innocent again thanks to someone’s fantasy becoming a reality.
Yesterday on The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon brought back the photobombing tourists segment. Instead of doing it on the roof of 30 Rock, he did it at the Super Bowl. His guest stars in the bit were Chris Pratt and Chris Evans. Those boys definitely added a whole new dimension to it. Because the Superheroes were up for anything and anything they did.
At one point the NBC late night host wanted to do a triple hoagie, but the Everwood star had other plans for the sandwich. He put the sub in between his crotch’s zipper and gave the unsuspecting people a photo they will never forget. Then Fallon did the unthinkable, he grabbed the sandwich from between Pratt’s crotch and ate it. I wonder how it tasted? Or maybe not?
That was just one of their wacky and yet creative fun ways that they proved that they were the best photobombers at the Super Bowl. So sit back and watch their brilliance be caught in the flash of an eye.
After the Super Bowl ended, it was time for The Tonight Show to Get Hard. Jimmy Fallon welcomed Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, the stars of the upcoming film, on to the NBC late night show as guests and he challenged them to a lip sync battle. The first round was good but not great, while the second one made you smile as you lip synced along with the three men.
Will Ferrell started it off with Let It Go from Frozen and he captured Elsa’s intensity. Then Fallon had a surprise guest mouth Dirty Dancing’s I’ve Had the Time of My Life with him, that guest was his wife’s BFF Drew Barrymore. The two of them recreated the infamous dance and did their version of the lift, which didn’t end as well as they would’ve liked. Finally it was time to the end the battle and little Kevin Hart belted out Katy Perry’s Roar as if he was taller than Shaq in heels.
So who was the winner? Just like the song that was performed as the beginning of the special show, they were all Queens. I am mean, they made like Queen’s huge hit and declared We Are the Champions.
Blake Shelton was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a game of The Whisper Challenge. Basically, one guy wore head phones with blaring music as the other one read him a phrase that he had to guess. The Voice coach got Benedict Cumberbatch and even though he didn’t think he said it correctly, he did. Then after the NBC late night host got it, Shelton said, “That doesn’t even mean anything.” Then when it was explained to him that Cumberbatch was nominated for an Oscar, he was like, “Who? That’s a person?…I’ve never even heard of that.” Where is Watson when you need him?
How has the singer never heard of Benedict Cumberbatch? I guess that coaching on The Voice, recording new music and touring, there isn’t any time left for him to do anything else.
You know what, now that I think about it. Since Shelton doesn’t even know who Cumberbatch is, I think it would be fun if the Oscars got him to present. Imagine how bad he would screw up the names of the people he doesn’t know, which is probably almost of the nominees. Imagine if David Oyelowo got nominated and he had to try to say that name?
