Jimmy Fallon Leads an All-Star A Cappella Group in Queen’s ‘We Are the Champions’

Cross Queen off the list of classic rockers covered by Jimmy Fallon. After last night’s big game, ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ paid tribute to the Super Bowl by uploading an a cappella version of ‘We Are the Champions’ recorded with some of music’s biggest stars.

As you can see in the video above, Fallon begins the song by himself, but he’s immediately joined by his show’s house band the Roots. Even the hip-hop group’s Damon “Tuba Gooding, Jr.” Bryson got in on the fun as the nine-box format evoked both ‘Hollywood Squares’ and the opening of ‘The Brady Bunch.’

But before you can start wondering about the one day when the lady met this fellow, Carrie Underwood takes over the Ann B. Davis / Paul Lynde center square, much to the surprise of Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson, who’s in the center-left. After that, it gets a bit mad, with, in succession, Sam Smith, Ariana Grande, Blake Shelton, Usher, Meghan Trainor, One Direction and Christina Aguilera contributing to the song, which also includes some old-school beatboxing.

It’s a far greater collection of talent than the last time Fallon was caught singing on camera. Last week, he led the patrons of a crowded New York bar in a drunken singalong of Billy Joel’s ‘Piano Man.’
