Tyler Perry Plays “Spin The Microphone” With Jimmy Fallon On “Tonight Show”
The game is similar to Spin the Bottle, except it’s a microphone that is spun, and instead of kissing, participants have to sing. That turns it into a karaoke showcase, with the players singing a new song each time the mic lands on them. Perry was nervous about adding “singer” to his long resume, and even had to compete against “Broad City” stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson.
Jacobson was forced to perform first, and she really got into singing Paula Cole’s “I Don’t Wanna Wait.” Her spin afterward landed on Perry, and he was tasked with singing The Weeknd’s “I Can’t Feel My Face.” The multi-hyphenate initially tried to match the breakout star’s notes, before having to admit they were “too high.”
But he added some Drake-inspired dance moves, raising the bar for the duet round, during which Fallon and Glazer took on Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison.” They weren’t exactly in sync, but there was a big finish when the host and Perry teamed up for Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know.” It wasn’t pretty, but it sure was funny.
