Jimmy Fallon and Weezer cover ‘Take on Me’ with classroom instruments

Ed Sheeran‘s done it. So has Shawn Mendes, Metallica, and the Backstreet Boys. Now, Jimmy Fallon’s handed the banana shakers to Weezer.

For one of The Tonight Show‘s most beloved recurring segments, Weezer joined Fallon and The Roots to perform a cover of A-ha’s classic “Take on Me” using classroom instruments. 

We’re talking mini tambourines, wood blocks, kazoos — the works, all with that iconic animated overlay from A-ha’s music video. And huge respect for frontman Rivers Cuomo in particular, who hits those impossible high notes.

It’s not the only fun performance we’ve seen from Weezer this week, with the group joining Fallon’s barbershop quartet, The Ragtime Gals, for a rendition of their own classic track, “Buddy Holly.” Read more…

Robert Irwin let three mischievous African serval kittens run over Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon invited The Tonight Show regular and Animal Planet host Robert Irwin back on the show, with his usual assortment of cute baby animals.

The 15-year-old son of the late Steve Irwin, Robert has the same level of infectious enthusiasm as his dad for all creatures great and small — including peppered cockroaches.

But that’s not all he brought to the show on Wednesday. Irwin introduced Fallon to three mischievous African serval kittens, a tiny Australian marsupial called a sugar glider, and an affectionate camel called Wednesday. Read more…

Jimmy Fallon challenged YouTube star JoJo Siwa to an ‘aggressive dance-off’

There are dance-offs, and then there are “aggressive dance-offs.”

Jimmy Fallon challenged wildly popular 15-year-old YouTube dancer and pop star JoJo Siwa, known for her appearances on Lifetime’s Dance Moms and Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition, to one heck of a dance challenge on Monday night’s show.

“I don’t want to know who can dance the best, I want to know who can dance the hardest,” said Fallon on Monday’s The Tonight Show.

Yeah, with that dance-heavy resume, you’re probably already thinking this sequin-clad teenager had it in the bag. She did. Read more…

Rachel Brosnahan is still very, very, VERY into ‘Pokémon GO’

You might think the whole Pokémon GO thing has died off. But try telling that to Rachel Brosnahan. 

The Golden Globe and Emmy-winning star of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel told Jimmy Fallon that she’s not only still into the mobile game, but that she’s a level 37 Pokémon GO Master —  Reddit user _problemz was the first in the world to hit level 40 and it made headlines.

In fact, although she started playing the game when she was very sick (using lures), her job as an actor is ideal for the game.

“Here’s the thing, when you travel a lot for work, which we do, there’s a lot of places to play, you play abroad, you catch them all!” she told The Tonight Show host.  Read more…
