If you tune in to The Tonight Show tonight, don’t be surprised if it’s an episode you’ve already seen. CBS News reports that this evening’s taping was cancelled after the show’s host, Jimmy Fallon, suffered a mysterious hand injury and had to be taken to the hospital.
Madonna was on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, and as you might expect she practically took over the whole show. Three Madge segments are making their way around the Internet this morning, including a performance of “Holiday” on toy instruments with Fallon and Philly’s The Roots. (What are those weird hand thingies Questlove is holding?)
If you need a morning chuckle, this clip from The Tonight Show will surely give you one, even if your laugh is of the fake Mitt Romney type.
Last evening, Jimmy Fallon was joined by former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney for a sketch lovingly called “Mitt in the Mirror.” They joked about Clinton, Obama, and even Zayn Malik leaving One Direction.
Check out the full clip here:
In case you missed it, Christina Aguilera was on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week, and she did the most hilarious — and totally spot-on — impression of Britney Spears singing “This Little Piggy,” to the beat of “Hit Me Baby One More Time.” Needless to say, it was amazing.
Of course, it inspired a heated “Were you a Christina or Britney girl growing up?” conversation around the office (Lots of Christina fans around these parts, in case you were wondering), which then inspired this week’s workout playlist: The Britney and Christina Showdown. Happy sweating, people! Read more »
On last night’s episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Wyomissing native Taylor Swift revealed her and Fallon’s bygone hobby of attending New York City sporting events and letting loose when they were featured on arena Jumbotrons. Of course it’s not true—considering it looks like they’re in the same arena the whole time—but it’s funny, nonetheless, and that’s why I’m dropping it here for you today. Check it out above.
Will Smith dropped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night to promote his new movie, Focus. During the interview Fallon broke out his iPad so the two could tinker with a new app called Loopy that allows you to record a variety of sounds, then it layers them all together to make a nifty song. The pair take turns beatboxing and when all the tracks are playing in harmony they top it off with a rendition of Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock’s “It Takes Two.” It’s pretty fantastic. Check it out above, and look out for Smith’s shout out to Philly and The Roots.
Last night, to celebrate The Tonight Show’s return to Los Angeles, Jimmy Fallon opened the show with a remake of the intro to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The Roots make an appearance, with Questlove, Black Thought and the guys busting a Carlton dance move. DJ Jazzy Jeff shows up, too. Check it out above.
WATCH: Jimmy Fallon, Questlove Sing “We Are the Champions” With Ariana Grande, Christina Aguilera and More
Following last night’s Super Bowl Jimmy Fallon and The Roots paid tribute to the game by doing an a cappella version of Freddy Mercury’s “We Are the Champions” with a host of their famous friends—everyone from Sam Smith and Ariana Grande to Christina Aguilera. It’s a delightful watch for this oh-so-gloomy Monday. Check it out above.
In other Fallon Philly connections: Kevin Hart showed up to promote his latest film The Wedding Ringer, and got caught up in a lip sync battle with Fallon and Will Ferrell. Check that clip out below:
Much like their ditty with Mariah Caray last year, singing her infectious “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” Jimmy Fallon and his Philly-bred house band, The Roots, teamed up with One Direction to sing “Santa Claus is Coming to Town”—with toy instruments.
The guys add an extra special touch with their vert ugly Christmas sweaters, and lots of energy. Check out the video above.
The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon was left without a musical guest yesterday evening, when scheduled performers U2 had to cancel last minute. Bono couldn’t make it because he was in the hospital recovering from an injury he sustained from a cycling accident.) So instead of scheduling another act last minute, Fallon took an even better route: He and his house band—Philadelphia’s The Roots—performed as Bono and U2.
“We already have the best band in the world—The Roots are here every single night,” Fallon said, before slipping into Bono’s glasses and cap and taking to the stage to perform a spot-on cover of U2’s 1988 hit “Desire.” Give it a watch above.
