Watching Jimmy Fallon And Ariana Grande Sing Broadway Versions Of Rap Songs Will Start Your Day Off Right

Jimmy Fallon Ariana Grande Broadway Rap Songs 9-6-13

I don’t know about you folks, but I had a SHIT-TASTIC day yesterday.  I mean, it was really just a punch-you-in-the-nuts, slap-you-across-the-face, drink-a-carafe-of-wine-alone kind of day.  So it was incredibly important that my Saturday start off on the right foot, so I’m incredibly thankful that Jimmy Fallon and Ariana Grande got together last night to belt out a few tunes.  And not just any tunes- rap songs!  In the style of Broadway!  I felt like they were singing just for me (okay, that’s just the wine talking).

While I was slightly disappointed that they didn’t cover any Ice Cube songs (my personal ’90s fave after LL Cool J), I have to say their compilation was simply delightful.  Especially the parts where it becomes obvious Jimmy is not actually playing the piano, The Roots are.  But the intended dramatic effect is still there.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we love Ariana Grande around here.  She’s incredibly talented and also so incredibly adorable I want to scoop her up and carry her around in my fanny pack all day.  Also, any gal that can belt out the F-word with such class and pizzazz is A-okay in my book!

Enjoy.

    I’m obsessed with Jimmy’s Liberace/Legolas/Pope look.

      Yes! It’s fabulous. I love how he whips it around for effect.
