Jimmy Fallon and his Ragtime Gals are back again and this time, the barbershop quartet gave viewers their own cover of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing,” on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
But the best part of the cover? Three seconds into the song, Steven Carell pops out of nowhere to joining forces with the already singing quartet which would now make them a quintet, right?
Anyways, check out the video below.
The clean-cut barbershop group give a nice clean to it, almost making you forget how the song is about “sexual healing”; almost.
Jimmy Fallon is one hell of a good sport and we mean that. This week on his late night show, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, U2 were supposed to take the stage as the house band for the full week.
Due to an injury that Bono obtained during the weekend in a freak bicycle accident in Central Park which required surgery, the band had to pull out of their duties leaving the late night program performer-less.
Insert Fallon and The Roots.
Instead of just leaving it at that, a week without musical guest, Fallon and The Roots decided to give an unexpected performance of them covering “Desire.”
The best part of the performance? Fallon came out on stage decked out like Bono in both clothing and eyewear.
Check out the video from the show last night below.
As of now, The Tonight Show has not announced what they will do for musical guests this week since U2 were booked until Friday and one can’t exactly go from the operating room to the stage in less than a day.
Considering Fallon started out the week like this, we’re going to assume that he (and everyone who works on the show) might have something up their sleeve.
Ever wanted to know what it would sound like when someone covers classic ringtone?
Well, even if you never did, Jimmy Fallon managed to get Sting to cover classic ringtones in his own personal way (Stingtones) during the signer’s appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night.
As if the Stingtones weren’t enough, he went on to record a personal outgoing message for an audience member, all to the tune of “Message in a Bottle.” We know there’s pun in there, but we’ll leave it up to you.
Check out the video below.
Maybe Sting should get a side job as a ringtone creator; we’re sure he’ll be really good at it.
Last week, Sting had been named as one of 15 nominees for up for a chance to be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. This will be Sting’s first time up for a nomination by himself; he was previously inducted to the Hall of Fame as part of The Police.
Not much has been heard from fun. in several months, since their performance at the NCAA March Madness, to be exact, where frontman Nate Ruess revealed they were working on some new material.
Since then, there has been radio silence from the band that a year ago were on a major tour and a continuous staple on top 20 radio. The only known thing was that guitarist, Jack Antonoff had formed a band (not a “side project,” because he hates that term) named Bleachers.
After months of quiet, it was quite a surprise, to say the least, to see the band not only appear on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show last night, which was somewhat live from Universal Studios Orlando’s preview of the expanded Wizarding World of Harry Potter (Hogsmeade), but that they came armed with a new song.
The new track is titled “Harsh Light” and awesomely was filmed in front of Universal’s Rip Ride Rockit, but other than that, no other information was given about it. Maybe the follow-up to Some Nights is on the horizon. Or maybe it’s just something to tide fans over.
We all know that Macklemore’s sidekick is Ryan Lewis, right? Well, what happens when ordinary people in the crowd get asked about the rapper’s right-hand man by Lewis himself?
Hilarity, all for The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The DJ/producer took to the streets to ask unsuspecting people if they could identify Lewis out of a crowd. Decked in glasses and slicked back hair, Lewis questioned people, but sadly, most of them preferred Macklemore to him and even at one point, a person rated Lewis a C+ in attractiveness. We, honestly, beg to differ with that grade that was given.
Watch the video below and give the guy props for not feeling like crap afterwards and taking it in stride.
Remember that super cool drum-off between funny-man Will Ferrell and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer, Chad Smith?
Well, after much smack talk, the look-a-likes finally took their fight to the stage to see who was the best. Dressed in matching KISS t-shirts, leather jackets and backwards, blue baseball caps, the duo looked like brothers from another mother on Jimmy Fallon’s late night talk show last night, where it all went down.
In order to have this happen, the Ferrell and Smith were asking for donations to be given to two charities of their choosing, Smith for Little Kids Rock and Ferrell for Cancer for College, which awards college scholarships to cancer patients. By the time the drum-off came along, donations had reached $30,000.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers also appeared on the showing, not wanting to miss their longtome drummer represent. This marked the first time the band had been on a late night show since 2006.
It feels like Coldplay are going to release all the songs from their upcoming new album Ghost Stories before the record even hits store. To this date they have released lead single “Magic,” “Midnight,” “Another’s Arms,” “A Sky Full of Stars” last week, and yesterday while performing on Jimmy Fallon’s late night show, they debut one more song titled “Always in My Head.”
According to sources, “Always in My Head” made its debut a while back when the band performed at the inaugural iTunes Festival in Austin back in March. The video from the show can be seen here.
Though the band are putting out this new album on May 19, frontman Chris Martin’s separation from his wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow has made bigger news since they “uncoupling” claim was made public through her GOOP website. Martin does say that he blames himself for the split, but seeing pictures of the two of them hanging out since the initial announcement seems to debunk their claims of separation, but then again, who really knows what’s going on there.
During their recent show at New York’s Beacon Theater, the band dedicated their song “Fix You” from X&Y to fellow Brit, Mick Jagger who is reportedly still grieving over the loss of his girlfriend, model L’Wren Scott.
What happens when you combine Jimmy Fallon, barbershop group, the Ragtime Gals, and actor Kevin Spacey?
Well, you have them covering Jason Derulo’s current hit song, “Talk Dirty,” but with a barbershop spin on it. Think the Dapper Dans from Disneyland taking on the naughty song and cleaning it up a bit so even your grandmother can listen to it. There’s also that added bonus that you can completely understand the lyrics.
Don’t believe us? Check it out the video which features the late night host, the “House of Cards” star and the barbershop group get their A Capella on.
This isn’t the first time that the Ragtime Gals (Tom Shillue, A.D. Miles and Chris Tartaro) have covered some naughty tracks that were breakout songs on the radio. In the past, they have covered R. Kelly’s “I Wanna Sex You Up,” “Ignition (Remix) and “SexyBack” featuring Justin Timberlake.
How do you celebrate the 30th anniversary of your hit film?
Simple. Recreated the iconic scene from it and that’s exactly what Kevin Bacon did during The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
This year marked the 30th anniversary of Kevin Bacon’s Footloose, the hit film about a Chicago boy moving to a small town where dancing and rock music had been prohibited and of course his arrival marks the beginning of the rebellion against the town’s authority on that.
Bacon who currently stars on FOX’s The Following, performed the dance as his entrance on Fallon’s show Friday and to say that the 55-year-old actor still has it, is an understatement. Check out the video as the late night show becomes that uptight town.
Last night, Idina Menzel or shall we call her Adele Nazeem took to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to perform her Academy Award winning song “Let it Go” from Frozen.
The cute video features Fallon, The Roots and Menzel playing kiddie instruments that you would find in a music class at your local elementary school including the likes of a small electronic piano, a color xylophone, a triangle and a couple of blocks.
If the scene looks familiar to you, then you’d be right. Last Summer, Fallon did the same kind of skit with Robin Thicke where they performed “Blurred Lines” with the same kiddie instruments.
Watch the adorable clip below and have fun singing along to it.
