Robert Plant joined Jimmy Fallon on Friday’s “Tonight Show,” where the duo used an iPad app to sing “Duke of Earl” as a doo-wop group.

Plant looked genuinely excited to be working with the iPad app. When Fallon handed Plant a microphone, the legendary Led Zeppelin frontman made an off-color joke. “This looks like one of those funny shops in Amsterdam,” he said. “No. No,” Fallon responded, “We are going to have to pixelate that out. Don’t hold it like that.” Plant noted between their laughs, “I had a nap before I came in here.”

The late-night host then asked the famous English musician to join him in a rendition of Gene Chandler’s “Duke of Earl” using the iPad app. “The guys looped their voices to create a pretty cool effect, singing a harmonized version of the classic song with some help from The Roots. “Do you think you can take these on the road?” Plant said of the iPad. He really seemed to enjoy using the technology, and his amazing voice did the rest. It was a nice antidote to the “violence” that marred Friday’s show when Fallon and Nathan Lane brawled.
