The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon was a laugh-fest when guests John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, and Chelsea Handler played a game of charades with Fallon on Dec. 2. The affable host is known for his love of games and often he asks his guests to participate. Sometimes the results are just silly, but this show was a success because the results were so hilarious.
Chelsea Handler and Jimmy Fallon were ready to play the game and Fallon announced that John Legend was going to play, and the singer confidently strode onto the stage, clad in a black leather jacket.
Fallon then announced a surprise fourth party, Chrissy Teigen, who look gorgeous as she came on stage and surprised her husband. Teigen told the audience, “I was just hanging out backstage.”
Legend mouthed the words, “That’s my wife!”
The teams of Fallon and Handler were competing with Legend and Teigen, although no-one seemed to take the competition seriously. Handler was especially impatient with the game, just wishing it was over. She had told Fallon “I’m not competitive and I don’t care.”
At one point, Teigen shimmied furiously as Legend finally exclaimed “Shake, Rattle, & Roll.”
At another point, Teigen had to stop the game to tell Legend his fly was unzipped as he was trying to mime “The Little Mermaid.” They were adorable together as they clarified that little was not related with what was behind the zipper.
The game fell apart when Fallon could not get the clues to “Singing in the Rain” and Handler impatiently exclaimed, “Are you serious? Everyone here knows it!
Fallon joked, “My pacemaker’s going crazy right now,” a reference to an earlier joke about his parents.
In the final round, Fallon and Teigen simultaneously acted out “Girl On A Train,” but by that time no one was making too much effort to make a guess and everyone laughed at the sight of Teigen and Fallon harmoniously chugging like trains.
Legend appeared on the show to promote his new album, Darkness and Light, and his film, La La Land. He closed the show with a smooth performance of “Penthouse Floor,” from Darkness and Light, as seen in this Tonight Show video. He was backed up by the “Tonight Show” house band “The Roots.”
