The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon might be prone to brief spats of name-dropping – hey, the guy knows a lot of people! – but on last night’s show, it was at least somewhat appropriate. Still recovering from Sunday night’s SNL 40 super special, Fallon was eager to share his recollections of the evening with his studio audience (and also Questlove, who was actually there, but who charitably recounted the whole evening with the giddy Fallon). There were a lot of people there!
If nothing else, Fallon’s already hazy memories of the show itself and its swanky after-party – which sounds genuinely insane and awesome – are quite charming. Until he gets to the part about Prince, which is just bizarre and somehow aspirational. We should all be as cool as Prince.
