Madonna was on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night promoting her new album Rebel Heart among other things, but it wasn’t her talking about touring with the Beastie Boys or her performance of ‘Bitch, I’m Madonna‘ I loved (although, yeah, I loved those too). It was when Madonna sings ‘Holiday‘ with The Roots, as that — it was all kinds of awesome.
After all, not only was everyone, all The Roots, Madonna and Jimmy Fallon, playing classroom instruments — one dude was shaking a banana, another playing a toy xylophone, Madonna blew a whistle, Fallon was drumming — they were all also wearing sunglasses and looking so damned cool.
Throw in the Hawaiian shirts, and Madonna, The Roots and Jimmy Fallon singing ‘Holiday‘ is one of the best collaborations I’ve ever seen.
Watch it below.
Oh, and do watch her sing ‘Bitch, I’m Madonna‘ as well, it’s just even more of the same awesome, and a prime example of why Madonna is still such a huge star.
You’ll find that below too.
And, of course, grab a copy of Madonna’s latest album Rebel Heart at iTunes.
