Jimmy Fallon Took on Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" With His Neil Young Impression & It's Actually a Great Cover — VIDEO
As far as winning the Internet today goes, Jimmy Fallon has definitely made an early play for frontrunner. In an amazing skit on last night's new episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Fallon posed as Neil Young to sing Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX's "Fancy," along with Crosby, Stills, & Nash. That is, an amazing rendition of Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX's "Fancy." Seriously. This will give you chills from its beauty.
If you haven't seen Fallon's legitimately great Neil Young impression before, check these first: While still the host of Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (a different era!), Fallon covered LMFAO's "Sexy and I Know It" in a haunting tempo, and, back in 2010, he covered Willow's Smith's "Whip My Hair" as an acoustic masterpiece with none other than Bruce Springsteen providing supporting vocals. So, this is definitely not the first time the genius of Fallon's Neil Young impression has taken over the Internet — and hopefully not the last.
As for last night's performance: Crosby, Stills & Nash, who were on the show to promote their new box set CSNY 1974, provided the supporting vocals to Fallon's Neil Young, as he sang Azalea's summer hit and jammed on a harmonica Bob Dylan-style.
