Video: Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon Dance to ‘Single Ladies’ Before ‘History of Rap 6’ on Tonight Show
When Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake get together some amazing (and funny) things happen. While we all saw the two of them perform the History of Rap 6 on The Tonight Show, what we didn’t see is the talk show host and singer hanging out at the US Open, where they waved to the fans in the crowd…..before standing up and performing the
Beyonce “Single Ladies” dance.
This isn’t the first time Timberlake performed Single Ladies, he also danced with Beyonce to the song on Saturday Night Live back in 2008. On SNL he dressed for the occasion, leotard and heels, this time he was wearing his regular street clothes.
Before the performers headed over to the US Open, they filmed the sixth version of the History of Rap duet, the duets they’ve been performing since 2011.
The sixth version of the History of Rap included songs by LL Cool J, MC Hammer, Public Enemy, Salt-N-Pepa, Wu-Tang Clan, Beastie Boys, The Notorious B.I.G., and many more (check out the complete list below).
Fallon attempted to cover N.W.A.’s “Straight Outta Compton,” but Timberlake wouldn’t allow it, telling him, “We went through this before,” Timberlake said. “You are not straight outta Compton, you are straight outta upstate New York.”
Before performing, Justin sat down with Jimmy where he spoke about what it is like being a father to his five month old son, Silas Randall. When asked if he changes diapers he said,”I can’t even wipe my own butt.” The singer was excited to share Silas’ first words were “dada.”
Justin spilled the beans that Jimmy’s wife likes to put family photos on mugs, so Justin decided it would be funny to pose with a mug with Jimmy’s face on it and send it to the comedian. Of course, Jimmy topped that and posed with a photo of Justin holding the mug with his face on it. We have the video below if you are confused – because it is confusing.
Check out the videos below of Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon’s version of Beyonce’s Single Ladies, their sixth “History of Rap,” and the mug conversation.
