A Little (Late) Night Music

Y'know, when I started this blog, if somebody had told me, "SHE-BLOGGO, I have a secret for you. You're going to be posting a lot of videos from Jimmy Fallon's new talk show," I would have said, "Ha! I doubt it, fool."

Well, whichever fool would have hypothetically let me in on that hypothetical secret... they would have been not-so-hypothetically right.

I've loved Jimmy Fallon since he was on SNL, but I know that not everybody does and I also can see why people figured his Late Night would be a flop. I honestly thought they weren't too misguided in their predictions. But Jimmy has etched himself a little niche in the talk show world, and I couldn't be happier that he's getting rewarded for it.

He's kind of like the Ellen of late night, and I'm sure Jimmy would appreciate me comparing him to a gay lady. But it's true. Both hosts are extremely well-liked with other celebrities, and so the goodwill is there for Jimmy to call in favors. They both approach their segments with creativity and an earnest sense of fun that's hard not to find endearing. And Jimmy in particular gets his guests to participate in awesome activities, like beer pong, charades, and an occasional dance off. ALSO HE AND BRIAN WILLIAMS SLOW-JAM THE NEWS. I mean, that's awesome.

The point of this post, before I swerved into a tangent, was to bring you this video of Amy Poehler, Rashida Jones, Jimmy Fallon, and ?uestlove singing a beautifully amorous quartet (or duetting duets, if you will) on Late Night last night. I giggled madly through the whole thing, and it's worth sharing. And I guess, to summarize, I'd be singing this song to Mr. Fallon himself lately. But not in a creepy way.
