On Thursday’s episode of “The Tonight Show,” Jimmy Fallon invited music legend Billy Joel to his guest’s seat not only to talk, but also to sing.
With a little help from Fallon’s iPad, the comedian and the musician formed a “2-man doo-wop group” and performed a mostly a capella version of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.”
“You’re one of my all time favorites, and even just to talk to you, I get a little nervous,” Fallon told Joel. “But to sing with you is the craziest thing. And so I came up with an idea where maybe I can sing with you.”
Since the start of Fallon’s gig as host of “The Tonight Snow” a month ago, the comedian has posted stellar ratings and is particularly popular among adults ages 18 to 49. Some of his notable sketches include a lip sync battle with Paul Rudd, a hip-hop dance feature with Will Smith and a wastepaper basketball match with NBA star LeBron James.
Though he refrains from dancing or shooting hoops, Fallon certainly exhibits his own musical talents alongside Joel. Watch the video below.
