While in New York for Fashion Week, Miguel paid a visit to “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Monday, performing his single “Simple Things” off his latest album Wildheart. Dressed in all white, he initially appeared in profile on stage, strumming an acoustic guitar. Then the lights came on, and he launched into the slow-burning R&B jam.
Afterwards, he competed in a game with Jimmy Fallon, Benicio Del Toro, and Jessica Alba called “Long Story Short.” He and Benicio, on a team together, had to guess movie titles in under five seconds without saying their names. Miguel described 50 Shades of Grey—”He likes to tie her up,” he offered. Benicio missed that clue, and missed another when Miguel described The Notebook as “something you write in at school.” But ultimately they were unable to pull off a win. Watch them face off.
Later in the evening, Miguel joined Rita Ora on stage during her show at Irving Plaza to duet on his hit “Coffee.”
