Neil Young is on my list of sacred musical artists, but I have to hand it to Jimmy Fallon — his impersonation is damn near flawless. Last night on “The Tonight Show,” Jimmy donned a ratty bobbed wig and brought out special guests Crosby, Stills & Nash for a reunion of sorts, performing, of all things, Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy.” Why? Because WHY NOT. This is the second time Jimmy has paid tribute to Neil — in 2012, Bruce Springsteen joined him in full ’70s-era Boss regalia on “Late Night” and the two performed Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair.” Check that out over at Idolator!
Davvvvve Chappelle is back, y’all! The comedian, who famously dropped off the face of the earth at the height of his fame, is doing a series of comedy shows at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall, including a few shows with musical guests like The Roots (I’m going to that one!), Nas and Erykah Badu. Dave dropped by “The Tonight Show” last night to promote the tour and explained just why he picked the musicians he did, how he felt when Prince used his impersonation of him as his album cover art and told the most amazing story about first meeting Kanye West.
“I Luh Ya Papi” singer Jennifer Lopez stopped by “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” last night and was shocked to discover that she and the host were wearing the exact same pair of tight white pants. Fashion disaster! J. Lo was not having that, telling Fallon, ”Listen up, you little bitch. You better hide your wife, you better hide your kids, because I will cut you! I will cut your father, I will cut your mother, I will scratch you! Don’t make me take off my hoops!” Naturally, that led to a dance-off –with both Fallon and Lopez wearing Monkees-style bowl cut wigs for some reason. I’m gonna give this one to the original Fly Girl. Sorry, Jimmy.
In case you hadn’t ever noticed, Will Ferrell and Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers are practically twins. But do their similarities extend beyond the physical? Can, say, Will Ferrell drum his balls off like Chad? “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” wanted to find out, so Chad and Will stopped by for a drum-off. What’s next? A sing-off between Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel? Yes please!
Shut the front door! Has Jimmy Fallon been hittin’ the gym or what?
The comedian shed his shirt for a “nip sync” contest with “The Expendables 3″ star Terry Crews, and at least a minute, it seemed like the 39-year-old ”Tonight Show” host had revealed a previously unseen ripped physique. Alas, the wonders of CGI. Watch the two funny men ham it up on Celebuzz…
You know, sometimes I watch these bits from late night talk shows and am like, “Yeah, this is funny” and I laugh a little, but then I turn it off before the end because really it’s not thaaaaat funny. But this segment from last night’s “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” with Jennifer Lawrence playing the ridiculous game “Box of Lies”? I actually watched it from start to finish and genuinely LOLed, not just at the ridiculousness of the game, but at the weird tangents Jimmy and Jen managed to go on. Both such weirdos.
At first I was a little concerned about Emma Stone’s first song choice in last night lip sync battle against Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show.” Blues Traveler? Really? But I forgot about the rap breakdown on “Hook,” and how ridiculous it is, so maybe Emma was on to something. Jimmy started off slow with Iggy Azalea, but Styx’s “Mr. Roboto” was a worthy second choice. But Emma reigned triumphant with her second song, “All I Do Is Win” by DJ Khaled, totally nailing the Ludacris rap. You know what I would like to see next? An all-stars battle between Emma and Paul Rudd. Make it happen, Fallon. [HyperVocal]
MC BriWi, I mean, newsman Brian Williams dropped his sixth rap on “The Tonight Show” last night, adding Snoop’s “Gin and Juice” to his growing catalogue of ’90s hip-hop covers. That is, Jimmy Fallon’s wolf-eared editors pieced together bits of Williams’ newscasts into yet another flawless mashup. G’s up, hoes down, while you motherfuckers bounce to this! [HyperVocal]
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.
