Ugh, you know how when people get back from vacation, they always want to show you photos of all the amazing things they did and places they visited and food they ate, and inside, you’re all, “Thanks, but no thanks, your vacay photos are really only interesting to you.” But you still look at all of their damn pictures because you know you’ve asked the same exact thing of countless friends and family members who probably had very little interest in the amazing taco place you found in Tulum or the four millionth skull inside Paris’s Catacombs. I bring this up because I really think we should move forward as a society and all make a pact to stop expecting and asking people to show interest in our vacation photos. Unless of course Jon Hamm and Jimmy Fallon have photobombed your vacation photos, in which case, you have my undivided attention.
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?
