Jennifer Lopez showed off her fly moves in Fast Dance Off on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Questlove of The Roots picked out what he thought to be the “least danceable” songs from the ‘70s, meaning incredibly slow songs, and Lopez and Fallon had to dance really fast to them. If that sounds ridiculous, that’s because it was, but in the best way possible.
Lopez went first, dancing to “Three Times a Lady” by the Commodores. When Lopez heard Lionel Richie’s silky smooth voice she broke into a dance like she was at the club with her girlfriends. Not sure if that’s what Richie had in mind when he wrote the ballad.
Next, Fallon got his chance dancing to “Babe” by Styx. After a slow start, Fallon broke out into a frantic Running Man, then what can only be described as Disco dancing. He even threw in what appeared to be a mix of Michael Jackson and Mick Jagger. Unfortunately for Fallon, his fast dancing lacked rhythm.
Though Lopez clearly had the contest won, she had to go again, which even took her by surprise. This time, she pulled out her best hip hop moves for “MacArthur Park” by Richard Harris. Fallon knew he had no chance of coming back so he stopped the performance and gave her the win.
Lopez was gracious enough to share her victory dance with Fallon, and the two danced to the hit classic “Reunited” the way Peaches and Herb surely intended: Super fast.
