Usher, Ariana Grande, Sam Smith + More Cover ‘We Are the Champions’ on ‘Jimmy Fallon’ [VIDEO]
While we usually catch 'The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon' during the week, the comedian and late-night host filmed a special edition of the show last night (Feb. 1). To make the event even more spectacular, he enlisted some of our favorite stars including Ariana Grande, Sam Smith and Usher to take part in a cover of Queen's 'We Are the Champions.'
Filmed like the opening credits of 'The Brady Bunch,' the colorful clip starts off with Fallon and the Roots, who provide the vocal rhythm and musical foundation for the classic song. After Fallon does his part, Carrie Underwood joins in, followed by other artists including Meghan Trainor, One Direction, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton.
As the track progresses, we see more and more of the participants in their cute, brightly colored little sections putting their own spin on the lyrics. And if you listen a little harder, you'll hear Ariana and Christina kind of go for the title in the vocal Olympics with all their belted runs.
With the Grammy Awards on Sunday (Feb. 8), this is a nice precursor to see what happens when artists come together on epic songs. If only they would actually do this one live, now that would really be a sight to see.
