Done brilliantly, the NBC Tonight Show’s classroom instrument covers are wonderful segments where everyone from Mariah Carey to the cast of Sesame Street have stripped down their classic hits to minimalist renditions where the arrangements are spare but joyous versions of the songs. It was only a matter of time before Adele got in on the action, and she joined Jimmy Fallon and the Roots this week for a sprightly rendition of her huge hit “Hello.”
Adele is of course an astounding singer, and this playful moment gives her a chance to be down to earth. Check out the links below for highlights from last night, and sneak peeks for tonight’s shows, as well as Thursday and Friday’s programming!
Below are the clips with Jimmy, Adele and The Roots singing “Hello” with classroom Instruments, Fallon’s interviews with Tim Allen and Danai Gurira, and a performance by Jennifer Nettles. Don’t miss Seth’s interviews with Superstore’s America Ferrera, Chicago Med’s Oliver Platt and Judah Friedlander on Late Night!
