Watch Out, Jimmy Fallon: Stephen Colbert Can Sing (and Dance), Too!
With Colbert taking over from David Letterman next year, The Tonight Show won't be the only program with a host who can carry a tune
Jimmy Fallon joked on Twitter that Stephen Colbert will need to change his first name to Jimmy when he joins the ranks of late-night talk show hosts next year, but he might not be smiling once the Colbert Report star settles into David Letterman’s chair.
That’s because Fallon is not the only triple threat in town – Colbert (who will be ditching his ultraconservative alter ego when he takes on the new gig) has some serious singing skills. We’re talking Broadway serious.
And speaking of Broadway, here he is with Tony winner Audra McDonald in 2012. McDonald has also duetted with Fallon, will she be forced to pick sides?
Want more moves? Well, how about some liturgical dancing. Preach!
And how about some lip-syncing and booty-shaking with Jeff Bridges and rollerboogie with Bryan Cranston?
If you ask us what the world needs is more singing and dancing hosts (we’re looking at you, Anderson Cooper). Here’s Fallon and Colbert together – hopefully not for the last time.
