Jimmy Fallon kicked off premiere week at “The Tonight Show” with some superstar guests including Ellen DeGeneres, Steve Harvey, and LeBron James. On Wednesday night, he welcomed back his pal Justin Timberlake. The duo debuted the sixth installment in their popular “History of Rap” series.
The six-minute medley started off with R. Kelly’s “Fiesta” and LL Cool J’s “Rock the Bells.” They performed 23 songs including “La Di Da Di” and “Fight the Power,” but Timberlake stopped Fallon before he went into “Straight Outta Compton.”
“Jimmy, you are not straight outta Compton. You are straight outta upstate New York,” said Timberlake.
They continued with “Let’s Talk About Sex” and even did the Hammer Dance before busting out “Country Grammar,” “Crossroads,” “Ignition (Remix),” “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” “Know Yourself,” “I Don’t F**k With You,” and “My Way.” They made their way into the audience for the finale of Beastie Boys’ “(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (to Party!).”
During his visit, Timberlake also shared some photos of his and wife Jessie Biel’s five-month-old son Silas Randall Timberlake.
“It is the most insanely amazing, most beautiful, unbelievable thing that can ever happen to you,” gushed the new dad about fatherhood.
Earlier in the day, Timberlake and Fallon were spotted at the U.S. Open, dancing in the stands to Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies.”
