Jamie foxx’s john legend impression is so good that it’s actually uncomfortable
If you’ve ever described Jamie Foxx’s musical abilities as “legend,” then my friend, how right you were.
The actor stopped by “The Tonight Show” Tuesday (May 19) for a round of “Wheel of Musical Impressions,” the game in which competitors have to impersonate a randomly-selected artist on a randomly-selected song to the best of their abilities.
And while Foxx was pretty much on fire from the start (he’s got a top-notch Mick Jagger strut, among other things), it was his impression of John Legend that everyone is talking about today, for obvious reasons.
What started as a hilarious impression of Legend doing a heartfelt rendition of the Toys’R’Us theme song segued into a spot-on cover of “All of Me,” which seemed to go on forever before Foxx got up, thanked the audience, and wandered offstage — all while still in character.
There are so many things we could say about this moment, but let’s be honest, this is one of those times when a certain GIF expresses our feelings in a way that 10,000 words could not.
