On last night’s episode of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon put a Broadway spin on some popular rap songs, during his “History of Rap” medley series. He was accompanied by famous actress Anne Hathaway, as she belted out the lyrics to some of today’s more hard core rap songs, Broadway style. Jimmy played the piano during the four-minute medley that included hits from Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Snopp Dogg and more. The skit could only truly be described in one word, HILARIOUS. Jimmy Fallon & Anne Hathaway give rap songs a touch of Broadway, and the collaboration was not only entertaining, but they may have just started a trend in late night television. Although the skit was meant for pure comedy purposes the two actually sounded kind of good together, singing curse words and harsh lyrics to a jazzy Broadway tune. Hopefully other celebs sign on to sing these Broadway style rap songs and create some more memorable comedic skits. After watching last night’s performance I know I would be a prime viewer. Keep bringing the funny to late night television Jimmy!
