John Legend Sings “Toys R Us” Jingle (Response to Jamie Foxx’s Impression)

John-Legend-Toys-R-Us

This past Tuesday during his visit to “The Tonight Show” Jamie Foxx gave a hilarious impersonation of John Legend while playing the game “Wheel of Impressions” with Jimmy Fallon. The song he had to sing as Legend was the famous jingle for Toys R Us, and he basically nailed it, at least in our opinion.

Well, as the clip went viral John Legend saw it, and now as a playful response he has recorded a video of himself singing the song!

At the end he even takes a little jab at Foxx by singing “hallelujah” in reference to his questionable performance of the national anthem at the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight.

Watch: Jamie Foxx Performs “Baby’s In Love,” Impersonates John Legend, Jennifer Hudson & More on ‘Jimmy Fallon’

Jamie-Foxx-Tonight-Show

Jamie Foxx brought good grooves and plenty of laughs to ‘The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Tuesday night. In promotion of his brand new album Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses, the multi-talented star hit the stage and brought along rapper Kid Ink for his feel-good new single “Baby’s In Love.”  It was another great performance from Foxx, but what truly stole the show was Jamie and Jimmy’s game of “Wheel of Impressions.”

Starting off with his best attempt at Mick Jagger, the singer/actor’s second impersonation had everyone in hysterics as he sang the Toys R Us jingle as John Legend, taking the impersonation even further he emulated how Legend accepts applause and exits the stage. But, just when you thought it couldn’t get any better and he couldn’t top himself, Jamie blew everyone away with a shockingly good impersonation of Jennifer Hudson singing “On Top of Spaghetti.”

Hilarious! You don’t want to miss these moments, watch the clips below:

Luke James The Real

Luke James received some much deserving daytime TV promo on Tuesday when he appeared on ‘The REAL’ and performed his current single “Exit Wounds.”

Over the single piano track, the R&B crooner does what he always does best and left his heart on the stage as he belted out the emotional ballad.

The audience had nothing but cheers and applause for Luke as he hit note after chilling note, but surprised everyone when he ran up the stairs to join the crowd for when the track flips into a turnt-up dismissal of the hoe that caused his heartache.
