Last week, Kelly Clarkson mentioned on that she was having a hard time finding duet partners. The singer recently collaborated with John Legend on her track “Run Run Run,” so she was clearly joking (but she clarified later in a Tweet just to be safe). Still, Jimmy Fallon, purveyor of epic musical collaborations, took note and selflessly stepped up on last night’s episode of The Tonight Show.
Together, the new duo performed an incredible medley of famous musical duets. In true Fallon style, they went all out and recreated an extensive sonic history, starting with “I Got You Babe” by Sonny & Cher and ending with “Endless Love” by Lionel Ritchie and Diana Ross. The singing was obviously hilarious and great, but the segment’s highlight came when Fallon slapped on a fake mole and earring to channel Aaron Neville during their cover of Neville and Linda Ronstadt’s “Don’t Know Much.” The two make a pretty sweet pair, and Clarkson’s duet dilemmas have undoubtedly been solved.
