Last night on “The Tonight Show,” host Jimmy Fallon continued to just slay at putting his celeb guests to work. This time, Fallon and guest Stevie Nicks recreated Nicks’ 1981 hit “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,” with Fallon embodying the role of Stevie’s original duet partner, Tom Petty. Watch above and check out the original music video after the jump! Keep reading »
I’ll be honest. I wanted to hate this so much. First, while I’m not a card-carrying Hathahater, like many, I do find Anne Hathaway’s carefully crafted ladylike-ness to be grating at times. Second, I have pretty much hated musical theater ever since I was a shy teen dodging jazz hands at a performing arts high school. And lastly, hip-hop is my favorite genre of music, so naturally, the idea of prissy jazz hands Anne Hathaway belting out Broadway versions of Snoop’s “Gin and Juice” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” kind of sounded like torture. But … it isn’t? In fact it’s really kind of hilarious and endearing and silly? You win, Hathaway. YOU WIN.
Shailene Woodley continues to be her usual adorable, foraging, wood nymph self, appearing on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” last night and gifting the host with his very own large phallic horseradish. Have we mentioned we love her? We love her.
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.
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?)
