Jamie Foxx Does Hilarious Impressions of Jennifer Hudson and John Legend on The Tonight Show.

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.Jimmy Fallon and Jamie Foxx were playing a simple, amusing game of “Wheel of Musical Impressions” on Tuesday night’s “Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” when suddenly a pretty terrific Doc Rivers impersonation was happening.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.)

The skit challenged Fallon, 40, and Foxx, 47, to belt out familiar songs in the voices of other famous performers with in-house band The Roots playing in accompaniment. Jimmy Fallon got to trot out his Barry Gibbs and Springsteen, while Foxx nailed John Legend and, more impressively, Jennifer Hudson — seriously, his Jennifer Hudson has no right being that good. 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. For his part, Fallon wowed the heavily sea servicemember Fleet Week crowd with his version of “I Love You, You Love Me” from “Barney & Friends,” as sung by Bee Gees co-founder Barry Gibb, and the “America’s Funniest Home Videos” theme, by Springsteen.

Foxx didn’t appear fazed at all weeks after viewers of the Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao boxing match criticized his performance of the National Anthem prior to the fight. —Peter Weber As part of her ongoing “Let’s Move” campaign to get Americans to work out and eat healthy, First Lady Michelle Obama participated in a workout video featuring her doing crunches, lifting weights, and other sundry exercises.

The star later told Ellen Degeneres that in-person attendees of the bout seemed to enjoy it and his earpieces had fallen out just before he began to sing. But the one thing that really stands out is that Obama has Pacquiao-like rope-skipping skills (starting at the 19-second mark): Anyone who tuned in to see Kanye West close out the Billboard Music Awards with a live performance on Sunday was greeted with an entirely different spectacle: the sound of silence. But in a new statement, West argues that he was “grossly over-censored,” spoiling the performance for viewers at home. “Non-profane lyrics such as ‘with my leather black jeans on’ were muted for over 30 second intervals,” says the statement. “As a result, his voice and performance were seriously misrepresented.

Although West was clearly set up to face elements beyond his control during the live broadcast, he would like to apologize to the television audience who were unable to enjoy the performance the way he envisioned.” Scott Meslow A new report from The Wall Street Journal, using FICO data, found that debit card data theft at ATMs is at its highest level in 20 years. Though it’s difficult to prevent card skimming at an ATM, experts at the Journal recommend covering the keypad with your other hand while entering your PIN and avoiding independent, nonbank ATM locations.

Texts listed on the “bookshelf” include Bloodlines of the Illuminati by the American conspiracy theorist Fritz Springmeier; The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11, by the 9/11 conspiracy theorist David Ray Griffin; materials from Congressional hearings about Project MKUltra, the so-called “mind control” program conducted by the CIA in the 1950s and 1960s; and The Secrets of the Federal Reserve, a book by the Holocaust denier and anti-Semite Eustace Mullins. [BuzzFeed] Experts estimate that about half of all living Holocaust survivors in the U.S. — about 60,000 — reside in New York and the three suburban counties.

For some, their trauma has been revived by the Sept. 11 attacks and superstorm Sandy, which forced them to flee their homes. [The Wall Street Journal] New York City used to provide services specifically for Holocaust survivors, but the program was scrapped after the 2008 crash. Ben Frumin The global consequences of climate change pose a “threat to the readiness” of America’s troops and will dramatically impact how they are trained, equipped, and deployed, President Obama will say Wednesday in a Coast Guard Academy commencement address. “Climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country,” Obama will say, according to text of the address released by the White House. And the repercussions from those natural disasters will sow political instability around the world, giving rise to new and unique national security challenges. He announced a historic climate accord with China in November, and has pushed for a global deal to reduce emissions ahead of climate talks slated for December in Paris.
