Jimmy Fallon Battled Musical Impressions With Adam Levine

By now I think everyone knows that Jimmy Fallon’s greatest asset as a Tonight Show host is his skill with vocal impressions. He’s turned his musical impersonations of everyone from Neil Young to Bruce Springsteen to “The Cluckineers” into a number of his best sketches.

But now he might have finally met his match. Last night Fallon staged a vocal impressions-off with Maroon 5 singer and Voice judge Adam Levine, and between Levine’s impressions of Michael Jackson singing the Sesame Street theme and Eddie Vedder singing “The Muffin Man,” the results did not disappoint. Do you think Justin Timberlake gets jealous?
