Fallon Gets Crosby, Stills & Nash to Join His Neil Young on “Fancy”

Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” has been No. 1 on the pop charts for six weeks now (the longest reign for any hit by a female rapper). So it was probably inevitable that Jimmy Fallon would spoof it on The Tonight Show.

Crosby, Stills & Nash were guests of Fallon’s last night, which prompted him to dust off his Neil Young impression, famous for such previous performances as “Sexy and I Know It” and “Whip My Hair.” CSN come in on the chorus.
