Alicia Keys Sang ‘The Alphabet Song’ As Adele On Jimmy Fallon—And It Was The Greatest Mashup Ever
This is one of those videos you will kick yourself for not watching.
As you might imagine, an Adele/Alicia Keys mashup equals absolute amazingness. Even when Keys has to play the part of both ladies.
Keys recently appeared on the “Tonight Show” with host Jimmy Fallon and played a game of “Wheel of Musical Impressions.” If you’re unfamiliar with this game, you’re missing out.
You see, with just the press of a button, a singer’s name and a random song are paired together. It’s the job of either Fallon or his guest to sing the chosen song in the way the randomly selected singer would have.
For instance, on her first turn, Keys sang “Miss Mary Mack” as Gwen Stefani, using the tune to Stefani’s famous “Hollaback Girl” as the beat. But it didn’t stop there.
With her second push of the button, the singer Adele was generated. The song of choice? “The Alphabet Song.” So, yes, Keys had to sing her ABCs as powerhouse vocalist Adele.
