One of my favorite Jimmy Fallon segments is the “Wheel of Musical Impressions.” The concept is simple, but there are so many opportunities for hilarious results. Here are the basics: the wheel spins and gives the guest two guidelines. They get a famous artist and a well-known song. The two aren’t related, and the combinations are usually silly—a Grammy-winning artist and a television commercial jingle is a good example. So, not only does the guest have to impersonate a very famous singer in a recognizable way, they have to do it to a silly song. After the guest goes, Jimmy then takes a turn at the wheel.
You may recognize Jamie Foxx from his prolific career and even know that he can sing, but I had no idea he could sing like this. When he did Mick Jagger singing “Hakuna Matata,” not only was I impressed with his vocals and awesome physical impression, but I couldn’t stop laughing. He goes all out in his impressions. But, it only gets better from there.
Watch to see what the wheel has in store for Jamie and Jimmy and don’t forget to like and share this post!
