After returning from a week-long vacation, Jimmy Fallon devoted an entire segment of Tonight Show to correct his past mistakes around TikTok dance.
On Monday, April 5, Jimmy addressed setbacks that his show faced after a segment during the March 26 episode that featured TikTok personality Addison Rae performs eight dances popular on the social media platform. At the time, users were criticizing on social media Tonight Show in order not to give air credit to the blackest creators of the dancers.
“On our last show before the break, we did a little bit with Addison Rae, where she taught me eight viral TikTok dances,”
He continued, “So right now some of the creators will join me to talk about how their dance went viral and then perform the dance themselves.”
Jimmy then talked to the creators and watched them perform their dance. Participant in the segment was Mya Nicole Johnson and Chris Cotter (“Up”); Dorien Scott (“Corvette Corvette”); Fur-Quan Powell and Camyra Franklin (“Laffy Taffy”); Adam Snyder, Nate Nale and Greg Dahl (“Blinding light”); and Keara Wilson (“Brutal”).
