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.
Miley Cyrus has proven herself to be kind of the worst lately, but that doesn’t mean the girl can’t sing. The divisive star stopped by “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” last night to promote her new album, Bangerz, and we’ll give it to her: she put on a pretty ace show. The 20-year-old channelled the opening sequence of “The Brady Bunch” via an a cappella version of “We Can’t Stop,” with a little help from Fallon and house band The Roots. (I maintain that the real star of this video is Questlove, who at turns looks both amused and appalled by some of Miley’s more questionable lyrics.) That said, there was very little Cyrus-tongue in sight, which should hopefully keep the singer in The Stroke Association’s good graces for just a liiiiiittle while longer. [Hypetrak]
Forget twerking! It’s all about scrumping now. Newly sober Lindsay Lohan managed to stay in an upright position long enough for this Jimmy Fallon skit all about the hottest new Teen Nick show, “EW,” and scrumping, which is so not EW. (And yes, I am old, and had to check with Mr. Google that skrumping is not a real thing.) [YouTube]
The Muppets are having a busy week! First, the family of Jim Henson donated the “Sesame Street” characters to the National Museum of American History, part of the Smithsonion. Then, Cookie Monster, Elmo, Big Bird and the gang stopped by “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” to perform with The Roots. They sang — what else? — the “Sesame Street” theme song. Dying. DYING! [YouTube]
