Jamie Foxx Does Magnificent Doc Rivers Impression on ‘The Tonight Show’.

You might expect Jamie Foxx to make a respectable showing on Jimmy Fallon’s “Wheel of Musical Impressions”—after all, this is the man who, in addition to recording several R&B albums, won an Oscar for his uncanny portrayal of Ray Charles in Ray.

Jimmy Fallon made the most of having a multi-hyphenate talent on his show when actor-singer-comedian Jamie Foxx stopped by The Tonight Show Tuesday night.The Wheel of Musical Impressions bit made its triumphant return to “The Tonight Show” on Tuesday, with Jamie Foxx and Jimmy Fallon trading off spot-on impersonations of some of the top musical acts of all time.Foxx performed an extended version of the Toys R Us jingle as Legend on last night’s Tonight Show, and it’s likely the only version of the song that might move you to tears. Foxx was getting a little hoarse and, well, he couldn’t resist pointing out that the coach of the Los Angeles Clippers practically invented hoarse. (Jump ahead to around the 5:40 mark.) Both Springsteen and Gibb are well-covered territory for the “Tonight Show” host, and for some reason, Fallon’s high-pitched Bee Gee just doesn’t seem to work as well sans shaggy (chest) wig or facial hair.

Fallon is of course well versed in performing those last two—so much so that you might think the “Random Song Generator” isn’t all that random. Despite not knowing that the “Lion King” tune “Hakuna Matata” is a problem-free philosophy that means no worries for the rest of your days, Foxx still brought down the house with a spectacular Mick Jagger impression, dance moves and all. But Foxx won the night with his impressive takes on John Legend singing the Toys ‘R’ Us theme song and Jennifer Hudson warbling “On Top Of Spaghetti,” which must be heard to be believed.
