Putting out viral content has become the new norm for late night shows, as it seems more and more people are set on watching clips in the morning rather than catching the shows when they air at night. This week we got two great videos to consume, and both are in a viral tug-of-war.
The first comes from James Corden from the Late Late Show with James Corden, as he does another installment of Carpool Karaoke, with his guest being fellow Brit and megastar Adele.
The duo sing a number of Adele’s hits including Hello, Someone Like You and Rolling in the Deep. The real surprise here is how well Adele raps Nicki Minaj’s verses in the Kanye West track Monster. If singing somehow inexplicably doesn’t work out for her, she’s got a promising rap career to fall back on. Even Minaj was impressed with it.
Pull thru, QUEEN!!!!!
Over at NBC, Jimmy Fallon brought back his Bob Dylan impression and did a special arrangement of Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Whether or not you care about Fallon’s antics, you can’t deny he absolutely nails his Dylan impression – harmonica solo and all.
Fallon has sung as Dylan before, as he did a version of Charles and Charge on the show back in 2014, and has been doing a Bob Dylan impression for a while now. His best impression is still Neil Young, which is freaking uncanny.
I’m going to give an edge to James Corden here, but both are excellent. Adele is just so game to sing along and rap and Corden’s harmonies are really, really good. Fallon’s Dylan impression has been seen before, so it’s not as fresh. Either way, both videos got me like..
