Of course, the real joke of 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon's adoration for translating current rap and hip hop songs into Broadway versions is simple, it's in the text. It's current songs made into Broadway versions. Easy! But the difference between an okay "Broadway covers" sketch and a great one is how much Fallon and his chosen guest sell it.

It's Water War! Jimmy Fallon's most bizarre and icy cold game yet! A game of chance, and um, hydration, Water War pits the 'Tonight Show' host against an especially down-for-whatever guest (after all, what sort of person would be okay with having water poured all over them on national television? a cool one, that's who!) in a battle to see who can get more soaking, sopping wet. That's the aim of the game, right? No? Then 'Blackhat' star Chris Hemsworth lost? What kind of world is this?!
Now this is a perfect marriage between 'Tonight Show' guest and 'Tonight Show' game. On last night's show, host Jimmy Fallon and guest Charlie Day broke into a quick game of 5-Second Summaries in an attempt to stretch their brains to the very boundary of "no, this is not enough information to accurately guess something."
Pictionary! It's one of the few games that Jimmy Fallon makes his 'Tonight Show' guests play that hasn't been totally twisted from its original form. It's a classic. But it's also an interesting way to gain keen insight into the way various people operate, even away from the game-playing stage of Fallon's late show.
Flashback! No, just flashing lights. Wait, wait, no, it's both! 'Portlandia' stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein hit 'The Tonight Show' last night to talk a little bit about their show's newest season (which starts tonight), which will apparently be heavy on the flashbacks and backstory. How did all of your favorite 'Portlandia' characters meet? This season just might pack a very special punch for you.
Despite Sylvester Stallone’s valiant attempts to prove otherwise with 1987’s ‘Over the Top,’ arm wrestling is sort of hard to make exciting for spectators. On last night’s ‘Tonight Show,’ host Jimmy Fallon and guest Liam Neeson decided to give that whole "make this sorta sport fun for the people" thing a go. It got weird.
Kidman and Fallon have previously met—all celebrities know each other, obviously—but while Fallon remembered their years-ago hang as a sort of weirdly casual thing, Kidman recalls it a bit differently. For Kidman, it was a romantic prospect, and the look on Fallon's face when he realizes what might have been is genuinely priceless. You really blew this one, Fallon.
Like many of us, 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon appears to believe that Hollywood superstar Bradley Cooper can do anything -- and, based on his impressive resume of stage and screen roles and accolades, the guy can't be too off the mark. But there is one that Cooper isn't so great at: music. It's sort of surprising, really, and even the overly solicitous Fallon was a little dumbstruck when Cooper admitted that his musical talents are minimal on last night's show.
‘Tonight Show’ host Jimmy Fallon loves a good recurring sketch or game, but one of his very best repeating gags is one we don’t get to see often enough. When given the right musical guest—typically, someone funny and plucky and more than willing to go a bit crazy—Fallon and his house band The Roots will break out the classroom instruments and everyone will just go to town on a particular jam.
Jimmy Fallon has beaten plenty of superstars on his ‘Tonight Show’ when it comes time to break out the drinking games—maybe these things are fixed! maybe Fallon is just really good at games!—but few talents have turned in such an all-around dismal performance as Chris Pine did last night. The ‘Into the Woods’ star could not catch a break when it came to Battleshots, a wicked little hybrid of Battleship and, well, shots of tequila, and Fallon nearly broke the poor man.
