Those of you old enough to remember Jamie Foxx‘s stand-up years likely recall that all-too-perfect and wholly hilarious Brady Bunch segment, wherein Foxx would treat the iconic opening theme through the musical prisms of Prince, Luther Vandross, Brian McKnight, Babyface and the like, respectively. But in the nearly 20 years and countless starring roles since, perhaps you had forgotten just how precise those uncanny impressions were. Well, a recent stop at studio 6b served as a healthy reminder of just what Foxx is capable of. Fully aware of Foxx’s magic music powers, Fallon lined up the comedic legend (yeah, I said it) for a fitting segment called “The Wheel Of Musical Impressions,” which found Foxx smashing impersonations of Mick Jagger doing The Lion King‘s “Hakuna Matata” (with The Tonight Show host countering a Barry Gibbs rendition of the Barney song) John Legend having his way with the Toys R’ Us theme and, of course, what would be Jennifer Hudson‘s rendition of the childhood nursery rhyme classic “On Top Of Spaghetti.” All of these wonderful moments are waiting for you down below, so run, don’t walk, to your nearest headset and bear witness to the continued reign of Jamie Foxx as comedy’s greatest voice-shifting genius on his Tonight Show appearance below.
