Two of my favorites teaming up for a creative rendition of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” Jimmy’s voice is extremely underrated and Billy’s is still pretty fantastic. That moment when Jimmy is smiling while watching Billy sing is fantastic. He’s thinking what everyone else was: “this is pretty awesome.”
There’s no doubt that Fallon’s fan base has grown exponentially since moving to 11:30 and he continues to deliver. The Tonight Show is suddenly full of new ideas, new bits and new ways to showcase Jimmy’s talents along with that of his guests. I record it every night now and if I miss something, I check it out on YouTube the next day. Kudos to Jimmy Fallon for transforming late night television from casual, “if there’s nothing else on type” to serial viewing, at least for me.
