Last night, Adele Dazeem, the woman formerly known as Idina Menzel (heh), joined Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show“ to sing “Let It Go” from “Frozen,” which won the Oscar for Best Original Song on Sunday.
Along with the show’s trusty band The Roots, Jimmy and Idina rocked out with toy instruments, including but not limited to a lemon shaker, bongos, a Casio keyboard and blocks. Oh, and it still sounds pretty damn awesome. This should be definitely be included on some sort of bonus edition of the soundtrack. Who else is going to have this song stuck in their head all day?
Talk about a lovefest! Last night on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon,” semi-frequent movie couple Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler got together for a little duet, singing a sweet little ditty about loving each other … every 10 years. It’s sweet and funny and, man, Drew Barrymore is just the cutest little pregnant lady ever.
Frivolous celeb selfies might actually do some good in the world, if Dallas Pets Alive (DPA) has anything to say about it. The nonprofit aims to make no-kill shelters the norm in Dallas, TX, and to find homes for rescue dogs. Their oh-so-brilliant marketing geniuses have gotten into the habit of #muttbombing, or reposting celebs’ selfies (and normal folks’ pictures too!) on their Instagram account with a shelter dog photoshopped in. So far, stars like Kim Kardashian, Jimmy Fallon, and Miley Cyrus have been featured, and their Instagrams are that much better for it. Besides being hilarious, the project is also effective — about half of the dogs featured in the first few days of the campaign have been adopted. I’m rooting for a “Real Housewives” #muttbomb next!

In what I hope will be a recurring segment on “The Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fallon challenged the painfully hilarious and handsome Paul Rudd to a lip sync battle. Paul started off with the classic “You Better Be Good To Me” by Tina Turner, integrating truly dazzling hand movements into his routine. Then Jimmy responded with Foreigner’s “Juke Box Hero,” which is always a crowd pleaser. But for his second song, Paul pulled out a lip sync rendition of Queen’s “Don’t Stop Me Now” that was so impressive, Fallon admitted defeat then and there. I’m telling you, Freddie Mercury always gets the last word. That explains why every time I karaoke “Somebody To Love,” the room clears.
Okay, so it’s not a “cover” per se, as the entire song is spliced together from news clips of both anchors, but it doesn’t matter — it’s tight. Especially the part where Lester Holt comes in and the two are dueting. “Hotel, motel, Holiday Innnn…” SO GOOD. Jimmy Fallon is seriously bringing it his first week on the job at “The Tonight Show,” huh?
Sure, having Lady Gaga, Will Smith, U2, Joan Rivers and Kim Kardashian, amongst others, appear on Jimmy Fallon’s debut episode as host of “The Tonight Show” is impressive, but, as any girl under the age of 15 will tell you, it could have used more Harry Styles. It’s not a party until One Direction’s cutest crooner (yeah, I SAID IT) has shown up. No word on where the real Harry was, but Kristen Wiig noticed the oversight and did her pal Jimmy a solid by showing up as a guest on his second episode as Harry Styles. She even sang! Kristen Wiig as Harry Styles may be my favorite Wiig’s impersonation yet.
Jimmy Fallon made his “Tonight Show” debut last night in spectacular fashion. With the help of Will Smith, Jimmy lead us through the evolution of hip hop dancing and reminded us how to dougie, twerk and do the robot. (Not to be confused with the evolution of Mom Dancing, which Jimmy did when Michelle Obama was on the show.) Which of the two is a better dancer? Their swanky overalls are too distracting for me to tell! (Is it freaking anyone else out that Will Smith appears not to age?)
Bob Saget, Dave Coulier and John Stamos (or rather, Danny, Uncle Joey and Uncle Jesse) are getting ready for their Super Bowl reunion by hanging out together on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” The three hung out with Jimmy on set, complete with heart-warming music and the kind of goofiness that only happens when that many comedians are in one room at the same time. Spoiler alert: Uncle Jesse is still a hunk. Time for a “Full House” marathon! [NYMag.com]
Got plans tonight? Cancel them! Or at least be home in time for “Saturday Night Live,” because it’s the Christmas episode and Jimmy Fallon is hosting, with musical guest Justin Timberlake. Jimmy will no doubt have a new Christmas jingle to debut, and JT will surely be bringin’ it on down to Something-ville, so I predict much giggling is ahead. Check out their promos above!
This past week was Pearl Jam Week on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” with the band playing both Thursday and Friday nights shows. Javier Bardem was a fellow guest last night, and apparently he and Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder have a longtime bromance. Who knew?! In the clip above, Javier and Ed talk about the time Javier came on stage during a show in Spain, and drunkenly addressed the crowd in Spanish, reducing them to tears for reasons Ed didn’t understand and Javier can’t remember.
