Jimmy Fallon Covers Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy”… As Neil Young
Joined by Crosby, Stills & Nash, the Tonight Show host busted out his best musical impression for the song of the summer.
With several parodies on YouTube, a Beatles’ Billboard record matched, and a debut spot on the 2014 Maxim Hot 100 list, you would think Iggy Azalea and her hit song “Fancy” would be on their way back down to Earth at this point. But last night, the song shot right back onto the global stage, thanks to a cover by Neil Young – or rather, Jimmy Fallon as Neil Young.
Fallon whipped out his infamous Young impression for a slow, melodic 1970s-style take on the song, and was joined by Crosby, Stills & Nash for the second chorus, before the band closed out with a performance of “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes.” Check it out:
You know what they say: you haven’t made it until Jimmy Fallon as Neil Young covers your song. We already knew Fallon and the folks at NBC were fans of Ms. Azalea—Anna Kendrick covered it on Saturday Night Live, and Jimmy Fallon lip synced it during his battle with Emma Stone. Who’s next? Brian Williams?
