Leave it to Saweetie and will.i.am to tear up the That’s My Jam stage. The duo teamed up on Tuesday night’s (April 4) episode to play Mega Mix Showdown, in which the players trade off lyrics to songs under a single category.
As if by fate, the category chosen was throwback rap, and the hip-hop superstars stepped up to the plate and performed partial covers of classics like Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day,” Outkast’s “Ms. Jackson,” DMX’s “Party Up (Up in Here),” The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize,” TLC’s “No Scrubs” and many more.
Their performance was met by a standing ovation from the audience, plus fellow contestants Keke Palmer and Joel McHale, as Fallon ran over to the duo and declared, “That’s how you do it!”
Season two of NBC’s popular variety show premiered in early March. The show, hosted and executive produced by Jimmy Fallon, features challenges inspired by popular Tonight Show segments. In each episode, two teams of two celebrities compete for a charity of their choice in a series of music, dance and trivia-based games and musical performances.
