Earlier this week, Stephen Colbert urged his friend, Jimmy Fallon to match a $26,000 donation made to DonorsChoose.org. Fallon urged his audience to raise that amount by Friday and if they succeed, he made Colbert to promise singing Rebecca Black’s YouTube sensation “Friday” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
More than double the amount was donated and NBC Universal put in another 26 grand resulting to more than $80,000 in contributions to the sit, where educators solicit donations for school supplies and projects.
But the question is, did Colbert make good on his promise? He sure DID and the performance was EPICCCC!
Colbert was dressed to the nines in a tuxedo and started the first few lines of the song like a ballad which transitioned into a combination of hip-hop and rock. He was later joined by Fallon, former American Idol winner, Taylor Hicks and Knicks City Dancers. It was truly a “fun, fun, fun” performance.
Watch both videos of Rebecca Black and Stephen Colbert’s rendition of “Friday” and tell me which performance is better?
