Sophia the Robot returned to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to demonstrate what she has learned since she was last on the show 2 years ago. She and Fallon played rock-paper-scissors at that visit, but this time around she had a new “artificial intelligence voice” to show off.
Sophia asked Fallon if he would like to do some karaoke with her. He chose A Great Big World’s “Say Something,” featuring Christina Aguilera. Almost immediately, Sophia had the song downloaded and was ready.
As the two performed the song, things went from awkward to romantic to unsettling. In fact one viewer tweeted, “Watching #FallonTonight and the duet with Sophia was creepy as hell.”

Despite being a little weird, the robot’s performance was impressive. She was part of a segment called “Tonight Showbotics,” which highlights cutting-edge robots. According to Fallon, this was the first human-robot duet in the show’s history.
Later in the episode, he sang a brief duet with a smaller robot that looked like a cross between a saxophone and a toilet brush. Oh, what amazing times we live in.
