Jimmy Fallon’s Star Studded “We Are The Champions” CoverPublished on February 2, 2015.
While most eyes were on the Super Bowl during Sunday’s night big game, it was late night host Jimmy Fallon who had to continue the entertainment after the Champions had been crowned.
In honor of the New England Patriots prevailing over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, Fallon and his band The Roots kicked off the show with a serenade of Queen’s 1977 hit, “We Are The Champions.”
Fallon and the band however did not have to handle the song alone and put together an impressive group of the music industry’s biggest singers across all genres to help him out with the a capella version.
They were joined by the likes of Carrie Underwood, One Direction, Sam Smith, Ariana Grande, Christina Aguilera and Blake Shelton just to name a few resulting in a much buzzed about rendition.
Of course the real stars of the night were the New England Patriots and later in the show Fallon even had three of the newly crowned champions take a break from celebrations and join him on the Tonight Show.
Patriots wide receivers Danny Amendola and Brandon LaFell along with running back LeGarrette Blount came to face to face with Seahawks fan Will Ferrell still wearing his Seahawks sweatshirt.
Amendola however was quick to “fix” it for him, cutting off the sleeves to mimic the style of Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick. The game may have been over but the fun was just getting started for the Patriots and their fans.
