The Roots’ Questlove and Captain Kirk have come together before as Black Simon & Garfunkel to sing songs in the style of Simon & Garfunkel on The Tonight Show. Quest and Kirk revived their act on last night’s episode, this time, with a little help from Art Garfunkel himself.
Black Simon & Garfunkel took on The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” with the support of a quiet acoustic guitar and harmonies so gentle, they were almost whispers. About midway through the song, Art stepped out onto the stage. Quest and Kirk gave him a look of confusion, but the three jumped right into the chorus together. And they nailed it.
What would Abel Tesfaye say? Welp, he already tweeted his sentiments to Jimmy Fallon this morning.
