Alessia Cara, Jimmy Fallon Video: ‘Wheel Of Musical Impressions’ On ‘Tonight Show’
Alessia Cara and Jimmy Fallon played “Wheel of Musical Impressions” on Friday’s “Tonight Show,” impersonating Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Lorde. Watch below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, “Wheel of Musical Impressions” entails Fallon and his guests singing random, silly songs in the style of well-known artists. Memorably, Christina Aguilera impersonated Britney Spears, and Ariana Grande did impressions of both pop icons. Other participants over the years include Jamie Foxx, Demi Lovato and Adam Levine.
Now it was Cara’s turn. “Why am I more nervous for this than my actual performances?” the rising star asked as they were about to begin. After the first spin landed on “Ariana Grande” and “Skidamarink,” she even exclaimed unhappily, “Oh, great.” But then she pretty much nailed it.
Fallon even stood up, gushing, “How do I follow that?! That’s unbelievable!” The host had to take on the “Empire Carpet” jingle in the voice of Sting, with Cara again muttering “Oh, great” when she then had to do the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme song as Nicki Minaj. “This is going to be weak; I’m sorry Nicki Minaj,” she said.
Of course, it wasn’t weak at all. And Cara’s spot-on take on Lorde was still to come. After the broadcast, the performer tweeted, “Thank u @jimmyfallon & @FallonTonight for always being so kind to me and letting me on the couch. had the best time.” Cara and Kristen Stewart will be on “SNL” tonight, and Gossip Cop will have full coverage.
