You know what? You win this round, Jimmy. I’ve got egg on my face for ever calling you a hack, because last night you managed an act of sheer brilliance that was 100 percent Fallon.
While the musical segments are by far the most superb part of the new Tonight Show host’s gimmicky repertoire (lord knows it’s not the softball, bloodless interviews), even a jaded old so-and-so like myself has to admit that last night’s Alanis Morissette/Meghan Trainor team-up for an “all-chicken” performance of “Ironic” was the most absurd late night moment in recent history…and yet totally worked. Enter: The Jagged Little Chicks.
Between this and our cultural obsession with Hamilton, it looks like “The History of Rap” stand-by is all sorts of clucked. Hopefully this will pave the way for more animal-human hybrid performances in the future?
