If your day has been anything like ours, it was spent continually re-watching Idina Menzel’s amazing classroom instrument rendition of “Let It Go” with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. It’s such an inspirational tune that it emboldens us to run outside and conquer the day! Except we won’t because it is entirely too cold out there. Turns out the cold does bother us anyway.
Menzel’s performance sent us into a musical YouTube wormhole of past performances. Join us as we take a look back at 5 amazing musical performances from Jimmy Fallon and The Roots!
1. Miley Cyrus’ “We Can’t Stop”
This a cappella performance of “We Can’t Stop” is simply Pitch Perfect. If The Tonight Show is taking requests, we’d love to see “Wrecking Ball” receive the Jimmy Fallon treatment in a future episode.
2. Elmo and company’s “Sesame Street”
This energetic rendition of “Sesame Street” tops our “Hey, cheer up!” playlist. If you’re in the market for a soulful, melancholy performance of “Sesame Street” Joshua Radin will have you boohooing in no time.
3. Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas is You”
Mariah Carey sings our second favorite rendition of this popular Christmas carol.
4. Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines”
To enjoy this video as authentically as possible, we suggest downgrading your YouTube settings to 144p so you may truly hear and see blurred lines.
5. Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”
You know something? Before this song came into our life we missed it so bad. And you should know that. We missed it so, so bad. Lucky for us this toe-tappin’ rendition is here to stay!
What do you think? Is Idina Menzel’s performance of “Let it Go” your new favorite Jimmy Fallon musical collaboration?
