Jimmy Fallon Rocks with Pants on the Ground Original at American Idol – Everyone now is getting crazy with the American Idol Pants on the Ground act now. Check out how Jimmy Falcon did it as Neil Young.
The second night of season nine of “Idol” plopped Randy, Paula, Kara and Simon in a giant hotel in Hotlanta. Mary J. Blige stepped in to keep Paula’s chair warm, and unlike Tuesday night’s waste of (very little) space Victoria Beckham, Ms. Blige was an engaging addition to the panel.
She talked back to feisty contestants, used words like “anointed” and laughed in the face of several bad singers. Now that’s a diva who isn’t afraid to look like a mean-spirited millionaire on television! Bonus points to “Idol” producers for using that shot from the “Just Fine” music video where it looks like Mary J. Blige farts doves.
In all the late-night hullabaloo happening right now, it’s nice to see “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” remember what’s really important — “Pants on the Ground” from “American Idol.”
Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin’ like a FOOL with your pants on the ground…
