The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is known for viral-worthy skits and interviews and this week there are bound to be a few that will make social media rounds. Host Jimmy Fallon knows how to bring out the best in his guests, whether it is admitting to a secret crush ie., Nicole Kidman, inspiring song and dance, or just acting silly and this week’s lineup is guaranteed to be a hit. With guests scheduled to appear on the show between August 27 and August 31, that includes Janet Jackson with Daddy Yankee, Tom Cruise, and Jennifer Lopez, we can safely say that Jimmy will go viral this week.
Monday’s line up includes Seth Rogen and Spike Lee with Big Boi as the musical guest. Last week, Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones appeared on the show. On Tuesday, Kate McKinnon and Mo Rocca will appear. The musical guest will be J Balvin & Nicky Jam.
Wednesday will feature Jennifer Lopez and Janet Jackson with Daddy Yankee. Janet Jackson returned to the scene with her new single “Made For Now” and many have returned to it as her comeback song.
On Thursday, Jimmy Fallon will host Michael Che & Colin Jost, Henry Golding, Justin Thomas and Dusty Slay as guests.
Tom Cruise returns to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Friday. The guests also include Parker Posey and Jorja Smith.
One of Tom Cruise’s previous appearances on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon went viral. It was one of Fallon’s infamous lip sync battles. In this battle, Cruise performed “I Can’t Feel My Face,” “Paradise By The Dashboard Light” and then joined Jimmy Fallon in lip-synching a version of “You Lost That Loving Feeling.” The duo performed their version as a serenade to a female audience member.
Fans are hoping that Tom Cruise will bring one of his famous characters to the show. Ten years ago, Tom Cruise played the iconic character Les Grossman in the film Tropic Thunder. In the movie, he also performed a dance to the song “Low” by Flo Rida and “Get Back” by Ludacris.
Cruise’s dances and performance as Les Grossman became cult classics and many hope he’ll make a reprisal of the role on the show.
