Jimmy Fallon, Idina Menzel Perform ‘Let It Go’ Accompanied with Toy Instruments [Video]

Jimmy Fallon won’t stop surprising everyone.

One day after “Let It Go” was named by the Academy the best song, Idina Menzel teamed with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on “The Tonight Show.”

“Armed with a xylophone, Casio keyboard, a triangle and a sense of humor, the crew performed the first “Tonight Show” version of a series that had become massively popular on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon (Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” has more than 17 million views on YouTube alone),” reports The Rolling Stone.

Roots leader Black Thought revealed that Jimmy, the band and the special guest determine the arrangement “in an instant” and that where people are sitting determines what instruments they’ll play.

The “Frozen” soundtrack stole the first lines of this year’s charts, hitting Number One on the Billboard 200 for five non-consecutive weeks and selling more than 1 million copies in the U.S. alone.

Let’s remind that this week “Tonight Show” saw such stars as U2, Lady Gaga, Arcade Fire, Tim McGraw and Justin Timberlake.

But one of the most memorable moments was appearance of First Lady Michelle Obama who joined Fallon and Will Ferrell for some talk — or to be more exact, some valley girl “Ew!” talk.

The actor, in drag, preformed the show’s teen host, and Ferrell played her friend. Their catch-phrase was “ew!” Michelle visited their basement set to talk about the Olympics and her favorite topics, exercising and healthy eating.

“Exercise is not ‘ew,’” the first lady told the teens, copying their Valley Girl-esque twang. “You just have to find an exercise that’s right for you.”

The first lady was something of the straight woman to the comedians’ over-the-top antics, but she gamely joined in with the trio for an  ”‘Ew’ dance party!”

Justin Timberlake also was invited to the show to demonstrate a much-anticipated fifth installment of their ‘History or Rap’ series.

The two performed “History of Rap Part 5” on the show Friday night, this time taking on songs by artists past and present, ranging from LL Cool J, Salt N’ Pepa and N.W.A. to Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West.

The TV BFF’s could barely it for few impatient moments, skipping the intros and immediately grabbing the mics that were hidden behind Fallon’s desk. They quickly made their way to the floor and belted out tunes to the screaming crowd for five minutes.

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon showcased their rapping skills on classic songs such as Tone Loc’s “Wild Thing” and The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Big Poppa,” then rolling into modern song selections, the two included Kendrick Lamar’s “Swimming Pools (Drank),” Drake’s “Started From the Bottom” and a mash-up of Jay Z’s “99 Problems” and Ludacris’ “Move Bitch (Get Out The Way),” before closing out the performance with a spirited version of Run DMC and Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way.”

By the way, this was Fallon’s first week taking over the extra popilar show. The new host has already proved his chops with a slew of major guests and repurposing other old Late Night sketches like the ”hashtag convos”.
