Jimmy Fallon, The Roots & Sesame Street!
Jimmy Fallon had some of them as guests on his show and yes they performed the soundtrack in one room using classroom instruments with his band The Roots! Fallon started doing some experiments after taking over the Late Night show that he inherited from Conan O’Brien and created this segment featuring artists or personalities performing using simple music instruments.
The current feature is the cast from Sesame Street featuring The Count, Cookie Monster, Abby Cadabby, Grover, Murray, Zoe, Aloysius Snuffleupagus, Big Bird, and Elmo. If you missed the segment during the airing of the show check out the video where they sang the Sesame Street song…
To add some flavor to the happiest music video Black Thought of The Roots offer up some rhymes about the "Sesame Street" characters. Black Thought of The Roots gives some rhymes about the "Sesame Street" characters. Check it out:
"OK, you heard about, through word of mouth
Big Bird is out, he's in the house
He's turnin' up, with Snuffleup
They're really gettin' their hustle up
They stick together like Velcro
There Grover go, there's Elmo
And Cookie Monster there, look he likes
To take selfies with his cell phone
They got a homegirl named Abby
Her last name is Cadabby
I showed her my report card
She said, [Abby: Not too shabby!]
They got all types of cool kids there
It's lots of fun if you live there
One thing I keep forgettin' about Sesame Street...
How do you get there?"
