Springsteen and “Neil Young” Perform “Sexy and I Know It” on Jimmy Fallon
It looks like Bruce Springsteen was “Born to Party Rock.” The Boss performed a cover of LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It” with “Neil Young” on Friday’s episode of “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.”
As part of an entire week celebrating Springsteen and his new album “Wrecking Ball,” Jimmy Fallon appeared onstage as 70s-era Neil Young and performed a stripped-down cover of the electro-hop hit. Springsteen hopped in halfway dressed up in a getup straight out of “Born in the U.S.A.” The Boss appeared later in the episode (out of his 80s gear) for an upbeat take on “The E Street Shuffle” with The Roots and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine fame.
This isn’t the first time Springsteen and Fallon have hammed it up onstage. The pair previously collaborated on a cover of Willow Smith’s “Whip My Hair” in 2010 with Fallon doing the same spot-on Neil Young impersonation. Perhaps we’ll be treated to a cover of Ke$ha by the two next year (or whatever flash-in-the-pan artist happens to be topping the charts.)
