Carrie Underwood Mocks Miley Cyrus on ‘Jimmy Fallon’
Jimmy Fallon and Rashida Jones were in the middle of a hilarious holiday-themed mashup of hit songs on last night’s (Nov. 28) ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ when Carrie Underwood came in like a wrecking ball, performing a timely and impassioned parody of Miley Cyrus‘ latest hit.
The TV host and ‘Parks and Recreation’ star were once again singing snippets of popular tunes as if they were about Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Black Friday or Christmas. To start the performance, they changed up the lyrics to songs by the likes of Katy Perry, Lorde and Daft Punk (with “I’m up all night to get turkey” a particularly memorable line).
The pair were already killing it when Carrie and a huge crying cat avatar sent the skit into the stratosphere, mocking Miley’s recent American Music Awards performance. With ‘Wrecking Ball’ becoming ‘Butterball’ and the cat getting a holiday makeover with a little pilgrim hat, you could guess where it was going — but it was still epic. Unfortunately, Carrie wasn’t rocking the now-famous catsuit.
The fun wasn’t over yet, though: Carrie joined Jimmy and Rashida for the rest of the medley, featuring reworked versions of tracks by Icona Pop, Robin Thicke and the Lumineers. Watch the clip above to get into the holiday spirit!
