Jimmy Fallon's FalPals deliver: Stephen Colbert to sing 'Friday'

Don’t ever underestimate the generosity of the American people when it comes to helping one late-night comedian force another late-night comedian to sing a 13-year-old girl’s song. On Monday night, Jimmy Fallon promised the world that if we could raise $26,000 for DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that gives money to schools in need, then his Best Friend For Six Months, Stephen Colbert would return on Friday to perform Rebecca Black’s “Friday” with the Roots.

Cha-ching. In less than 36 hours, the goal was reached. Fallon tweeted the news this morning, “Thank you, everyone!!! We did it!!! Stephen Colbert will (has to) sing “Friday” this Friday on our show!! Awesome!!”

Tune-up, Colbert. You know, a real Best Friend For Six Months wouldn’t let his BFFSM sing alone. I’m counting on Fallon to turn this into another of his memorable duets.

    Tuned in to Late Night for the first time in a long while a few weeks back, and I must admit that Jimmy Fallon has really come into his own as a host. He’s good with the guests, has great interplay with the Roots, and he doesn’t crack up at every one of his own jokes anymore. I’m liking this.

      I may have to check it out. I stopped watching because of something you mentioned – Fallon’s inability to not crack up at his own jokes.

      • Scott

        That is one of the things I love about watching Fallon. I loved when he used to crack up on SNL and it is one of the reasons (thanks to DVR) that i have watched every LNJF since he started. When he starts to crack so do my wife and I.

    Excellent! I look forward to watching that, although I hope Jimmy still donates $26,000 of his own money. If it just ends up being a stunt to milk money out of his less affluent audience (for a charity, I know, but still) and he doesn’t cough up himself, that’ll get on my nerves a bit. Maybe both Jimmy and Stephen will donate $26,000!

    I think Colbert mentioning it on his show last night *also has something to do with it , not just “Fallon’s falpals”. Just saying.

  • Jenn

    I can’t wait.

    It should be noted, that last night Stephen plugged the DonorsChoose donation page several times during the show, and tortured us with a clip of that “song”. It is well known, that we Colbert Nation Citizens love seeing our Leader do wonderfully blessed silly things.

  • Ellenore

    Steven and Jimmy have each already donated the $26000 Steven got for his portrait at auction and Jimmy matching it!

    I am both proud and embarrassed that I have been witnessing this back and forth between the Jimmy & Stephen. It has been some great late night television! They are both hilarious. And for a great cause.

  • Andrew

    I can’t imagine Jimmy not joining in on singing “Friday” with Stephen. How could he resist? Jimmy’s crazy games and activities with his guests make for one interesting show and set it apart from other talk shows.

  • Black Friday

    Maybe the next time he will.
