During a recent episode of 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon', 'Friday' is covered by the host along with his guests including Stephen Colbert.
To celebrate weekend, Jimmy Fallon brought in Taylor Hicks, Stephen Colbert, The Roots and the Knicks City Dancers to sing Rebecca Black's song "Friday". He pulled the "Friday" performance after issuing a challenge to viewers to donate $26,000 for charity by Friday.
"The whole thing was genius in my opinion," the "American Idol" alum told The Hollywood Reporter of the "Fallon Colbert Project" collaboration which aired Saturday, April 2. "Every moment was absurd: Fallon and Colbert in autotune, the hyper-glow Soul Patrol sweatshirt..."
Talking about the original version of the song which is widely criticized due to its inane lyrics, Hicks said to the publication, "There have always been songs about the weekend and partying." The singer/songwriter added, "I think it's fun, fun, fun, fun!!"
