Fallon performed Drake’s song as music legend Bob Dylan.
Fans of The Tonight Show are well aware of Fallon's spot-on impersonations of Bob Dylan as he's covered other songs. In addition to Dylan, Fallon previously did song covers as Bruce Springsteen, James Taylor, Stevie Nicks, and more.
By doing a Dylan impersonation, Fallon's "Hotline Bling" cover might be the best of all time. Wednesday's cover as Dylan was an homage to his legendary Rolling Thunder Revue performance.
When you watch the cover of "Hotline Bling," if you didn't know that it was really Jimmy Fallon, you'd probably think it was a retro performance of Bob Dylan circa mid-1960s. Fallon is dressed exactly like Dylan, including his clothes, hat, hair, guitar, and harmonica. And then there's Jimmy's voice, which sounds exactly like Dylan. And if you didn't know the famous lyrics to "Hotline Bling" then you probably would assume that this was an actual Dylan song.
