Let’s be fair here: Jimmy Fallon is not a bad dancer. He’s just no Jennifer Lopez — but who is?
The “Tonight Show” host did his best to keep up with the “Hustlers” star and “World of Dance” judge/executive producer Tuesday, when the two presented “The History of Music Video Dancing.”
Fallon and J. Lo started with M.C. Hammer’s “U Can’t Touch This” and transitioned into “Straight Up” by Paula Abdul — a pair of solid movers and shakers in their own right. Then it was time to do “Walk Like an Egyptian,” which isn’t quite up to snuff steps-wise.
They then tackled Milli Vanilli, which was somewhat of a taller order. All Rob and Fab actually did was dance.
The Kid ‘N Play step-back, kick, twirl move was a bit botched by Fallon, who also struggled with some of the “Macarena” order. Not to beat up on the “Saturday Night Live” alum, but his BFF Justin Timberlake will probably want to walk him through the finer points of NSYNC’s “Bye, Bye, Bye” steps.
Fallon and Lopez also did some “Gangham Style,” Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” whips and nae naes, and whatever Billie Eilish does in that “Bad Guy” music video. Lopez’s own stuff also made the cut, naturally.
Watch the video above.
“Hustlers,” which co-stars Constance Wu, Julia Stiles and Keke Palmer, swings into theaters on Friday.
