Jimmy Fallon has had a lot of memorable music performances in his time as a late night host but he really went all out when he joined Billy Joel for “You May Be Right.”
After introducing the legendary musician as usual the Tonight Show host walked over to the stage join him for the 1980 classic. Always the pianist, Joel stayed behind the keys while the host put his famous showmanship to work on the mic. Fallon grew increasingly animated as the song went on, at one point getting on top of Joel’s piano before singing directly into the camera.
Not content with getting Joel for his first late night talk show appearance in over a decade Fallon squeezed two songs out of the piano man. The first was a performance of doo-wop standard “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” at Fallon’s desk with the help of an iPad app.
Fallon was also joined by Chelsea Clinton who promoted Clinton Global Initiative University and discussed inventions, including a soccer ball that can generate electricity and Fallon’s less impressive idea to improve Thanksgiving leftovers with prepackaged single servings of cranberry sauce.
