Kevin Spacey and Jimmy Fallon Do a Barbershop Quartet Cover of Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty"

The Ragtime Gals, Jimmy Fallon's late night barbershop quartet, specialize in reimagining modern hip-hop and R&B numbers as old-fashioned a cappella delights. On last night's The Tonight Show, Kevin Spacey joined the group for a surprise performance, showing off some of his doo-wop chops as he led the Gals through a highly amusing rendition of Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty."

The cover is one of the Gals' best—partly due to the singing talents of Spacey and Fallon, but mostly because we get to hear Spacey sing that "your booty don't need explaining." Enjoy.
