Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” Gets the Jimmy Fallon Treatment…

Sure Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is inescapable this season, even topping Billboard’s Holiday Songs chart… But the instaclassic is getting a funtastic makeover.

Backstage before a recent taping of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the 42-year-old part-Venezuelan singer, host Jimmy Fallon and his backing band, The Roots, put a new spin on the Christmas classic by performing the song using classroom instruments.

To increase the adorable quotient: a quartet of kids pop up throughout the performance to sing backup.

Even with the unusual instruments like a ukulele and xylophone, the song comes together quite nicely in delightful harmony.

It’s Fallon’s latest creative re-do of a Latina artist’s song, following his take on Christina Aguilera‘s “Your Body,” featuring office supplies.

Aguilera’s “Your Body” Gets the Office Treatment

Musical instruments, who needs them? Certainly not Christina Aguilera!

During a recent visit to NBC‘s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the 31-year-old half-Ecuadorian American Grammy-winning singer created a musically delicious watercooler moment with only her voice and some offices supplies.

Aguilera, Jimmy Fallon and Fallon’s house band The Roots joined forces for a sweet-sounding performance of The Voice coach’s recent single “Your Body,” using office supplies like a stapler as their musical instruments.

Fallon and The Roots did something similar a few months ago with classroom instruments to Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe.”

Your Body” is the first single off of Aguilera’s seventh studio album Lotus, which will be released next week.


Louis C.K. Feeling Extra Generous This Holiday

‘Tis the season of giving… And, this holiday Louis C.K. is giving away a bulk of his earnings from his online comedy special to various charities.

During a recent appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the 44-year-old part-Mexican actor/comedian talked about earning a staggering $1 million from Louis C.K.: Live at the Beacon Theater, his online-only special that he released earlier this month for $5. He talked about never having had that much money and how he felt uncomfortable with it.

“That’s not even my money,” Louis C.K. told host Jimmy Fallon. “That’s just a $5 impulse that 220,000 people had – and now I had it.”

The comedian said he set aside $280,000 for five different charities. They include the Fistula Foundation, which helps women who have childbirth injuries, and Green Chimneys, which benefits underprivileged children.

Louis C.K. also set aside $250,000 to pay for the production of the comedy special, and the same amount for holiday bonuses for his staff.
