WATCH: Fallon Brings Classroom Instruments to Los Angeles FYC Event

We’ve seen Jimmy Fallon jam like this before, but never with so many collaborators.

Pulling from his recurring bit of performing songs with classroom instruments, Fallon and Keke Palmer led a theater full of Television Academy members in a group rendition of the song “Wild Thing.”

Fallon managed to sing, play kazoo, and provide percussion while conducting the audience, who were given kazoos, cowbells, and maracas to play along. Palmer took on kazoo duties as well.

Fallon shared a video of the performance on Twitter/X:

The For Your Consideration event, held at Los Angeles’ Pacific Design Center, celebrated The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’s tenth anniversary, and featured a conversation with the host led by Palmer, who currently hosts the Fallon-produced Password revival on NBC.

Performances with classroom instruments have been a staple of Fallon’s late-night run — typically done alongside the original artist and Tonight Show house band The Roots. The first one — “Call Me Maybe” with Carly Rae Jepsen — dropped in 2012, during his Late Night era. Over thirty of the segments have been produced since then.

NBC is set to commemorate Fallon’s ten years behind The Tonight Show desk with a two-hour prime time tenth anniversary special on May 14th.
