Please Enjoy This Video of Jennifer Lopez and Jimmy Fallon Performing Iconic Music Video Dances
Jennifer Lopez’s press tour to promote her upcoming film Hustlers made a pit stop at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night, September 10, and after watching J. Lo and Jimmy dance for four minutes straight, my sole goal from here on out is to be as fit at 50 as J. Lo.
In the four-minute clip, J. Lo and Jimmy Fallon paid homage to some of the most iconic dance crazes birthed from music videos over the years, starting with MC Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” Hammer dance. Both dressed alike in black tops, grey pants and a black-and-white flannel tied around their waist, J. Lo and Jimmy flip-flopped through different eras and landed at dances like the Kid N’ Play, Macarena, “Oops!…I Did It Again”, “Single Ladies”, and even grabbed blonde wigs to salute Sia’s “Chandelier” music video.
At one point in the video, the pair grabbed grey exercise balls to perform “Wrecking Ball,” took on Drake’s “In My Feelings” challenge, and threw on yellow oversized hoodies a la Billie Eilish to perform the singer’s “Bad Guy.” The segment ended with a tribute to the late Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and featured an army of dancers in 80s-inspired outfits and a bunch of confetti falling from the ceiling.
Hustlers premieres in theaters this Friday, September 13 and stars Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Cardi B, Lizzo, and more.
