I always wanted to form a doo-wop group growing up. Thought it would be cool to sing sweet harmonies with other people, then I realized how nerdy a dream it was and I gave up on it. Now, here I am, proven that if I just stayed true to my dream, it would have eventually be cool. Why do I say that? Billy Joel and Jimmy Fallon formed a 2 man doo-wop group for Fallon’s show, and it was about as awesome as doo-wop gets. Also, as is the case with most things now a days, there was an app involved.
Before I show you this awesome video, I gotta tell you, Jimmy Fallon has been mastering the Tonight Show. I believe it is safe to say that, if anyone had doubts about him being able to do it, those doubts have been silenced by the man himself and the often hilarious and engaging content he puts out. He also gets guest stars to do the best stuff that no one else could get them to do. Take, this example of Billy Joel and Jimmy Fallon making doo-wop music using a phone app. I mean, who in their right mind WOULDN’T be entertained by this?
How does Jimmy Fallon do it? How does he get all the starts who come on his show to step outside their comfort zone? Who knows and who cares? With moments like this, just be glad late night TV has gotten fresh and fun again. Fallon’s youthful energy just injects itself into whatever he does, and makes it that much better. This Billy Joel and Jimmy Fallon doo-wop group proves that.
