Jimmy Fallon may be a professional performer, but even the highly musical 'Tonight Show' host is no match for professional musician skills of 'The Voice' hosts Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton. The 'Tonight Show' host invited the pair on to the show last night for an epic lip sync battle, and things got ugly -- and quickly.

We've all got jobs we'd rather not remember -- that summer working the French fry bin at McDonald's, that bad internship at our mom's company -- and even mega Hollywood success doesn't prohibit a superstar like Liam Neeson from feeling that exact same pain. The actor has had bad, strange jobs, too, but nothing that could quite compare to his very first movie role.
If you've ever wondered what it would be like if Jimmy Fallon was a high school principal -- and that is, admittedly, a weird fantasy, but one the funny guy has apparently thought about a lot -- the 'Tonight Show' host provided an answer on last night's show. What would it be like if Jimmy Fallon was a high school principal? Well, it would certainly be musical.
This is the natural progression of 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon's assorted warblings and big-time musical impressions: a full-scale musical medley co-starring Barbra Streisand. The songstress has a new album out -- her 34th! -- that's titled 'Partners' and features just a mess of duets between Babs and a bunch of male partners. Get it? Partners?
Dear Hugh Jackman, you know that 'The Tonight Show' is on television, right? More specifically, it's on live television in front of a studio audience, which means hundreds of people are watching the show in person, with millions more watching at home. In short, it's a very bad place to decide to cheat at a game, particularly if that game involves standing on an oversized pool table in front of said audience.
Most of the time, Jimmy Fallon confines the 'Tonight Show' games to just one or two participants, enough to keep things clean and easy to follow, with plenty of attention for his various guests. On last night's edition, however, the host decided to pump things up just a bit with an all-star take on 'Family Feud' that crowded the show's stage with a metric ton of Hollywood talent.
Beloved teen angst fest (and starting point for such big time talents as Claire Danes and Jared Leto) 'My So-Called Life' might have been cut short -- like, way short, the series was cancelled after only 19 episodes -- but that hasn't stopped it from enduring as a modern classic that kids still relate to (and, hey, adults do, too). The series turned twenty years old just a few weeks ago, and star Danes didn't let the day go by on unmarked. Well, sort of.
Even if you're not into Adam Levine's own musical stylings, it's hard to deny that the Maroon 5 frontman is a pretty skilled when it comes to imitating other big time musicians -- a talent that 'Tonight Show' host Jimmy Fallon exploited to everyone's great pleasure on last night's show.
Josh Brolin knows what's up. The current star of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For' makes no bones about where he got his start (and the feature that he might still be best known for): Richard Donner's kids cult classic, 'The Goonies.' Rumors of a 'Goonies' sequel have abounded for years -- the last we heard, it was definitely in the works -- but it doesn't matter when (or if) the film actually happens, because Brolin will turn up for the gig with no questions asked.
If nothing else, Jared Leto's appearance on last night's 'Tonight Show' was probably the most "Jared Leto" the Oscar-winner has been on the late-night circuit. The actor/musician/forever Jordan Catalano took to Jimmy Fallon's show to basically hang out, get his beard trimmed, talk about Zen things, make music, and sit on a fake mountaintop with his host. If only every late-night segment could be this good.
