  • Springsteen on Fallon ... almost too much awesome for TV.

    10
    If there ever is a list one day of the most awesome moments in the history of television than the Tuesday (Nov. 16) episode of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon," in which Fallon's one and only guest was Bruce Springsteen just might top that list. That much awesome frankly should not be possible for one episode.



    It's clear to those who've followed Fallon throughout the years that he's a huge fan of "The Boss," after all; he did open up the Emmy Awards this year with a "Glee"-inspired performance of Springsteen's classic "Born to Run." Fallon has a spot on Springsteen-impression that made for many laughs during this episode. Springsteen was on the show as both guest and musical performance to promote his new box-set for "The Promise: The Darkness on the Edge of Town Story" documentary which includes the two-disc "The Promise" album of previously recorded, but never released songs that Springsteen cut during the 'Darkness' sessions.



    The absolute highlight of the episode was when Fallon came out and did his amazing Neil Young impersonation, singing Willow Smith's "Whip My Hair." If that wasn't awesome enough, halfway through the song Springsteen came out dressed up as his '70s self to duet on the tune with Fallon's Young. During Fallon's interview with Springsteen, "The Boss" gave insights into the making of "Darkness on the Edge of Town" about 30 years ago.



    Following the interview Springsteen performed two songs from "The Promise" album "Because the Night" and "Save My Love" with E Street Band members Steven Van Zandt and Roy Bittan backing him up along with The Roots, the 'Late Night' house band.moreless
