Millie Bobby Brown appeared on The Tonight Show Wednesday night and the actress showed Jimmy Fallon and the rest of us that she can pretty much do anything. If it were anyone else, that would be annoying as hell (we’re jealous, what can we say?), but because it’s MBB, we can’t help but be charmed and in general awe. Fallon asked Brown who her musical influences are and she cited Amy Winehouse. That’s when Millie crooned a few lines from “You Know I’m No Good,” and watching and listening to her take on Winehouse’s tone and inflection was pretty freakin’ magical.
Working on it since childhood is right. Check out this adorable throwback video of MBB performing Winehouse’s hit “Valerie.” If you thought current Millie is amazing, wait until you see five-year-old Millie do her thing. Let’s just say it was intense. So damn serious.
Just when you thought Brown couldn’t top the Winehouse stuff, she took it to a whole other level and proved she’s basically a human karaoke machine. Millie and Jimmy competed in a Beat Battle where they took turns singing different songs that went along with a random beat supplied by The Roots. If a competitor couldn’t think of a new song or if there was any hesitation, it was an automatic loss. But, please. There were no losers last night.
Brown crushed it, obviously, and let’s also give credit to Fallon who also knows the lyrics to just about every song. Brown tackled everything from Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Call Me Maybe,” Gwen Stefani‘s “Hollaback Girl” to Shawn Mendes‘ “If I Can’t Have You,” while Fallon took on Backstreet Boys‘ “I Want It That Way,” “Justin Bieber‘s “Sorry” and Hall & Oates‘ “Rich Girl.” But they came together in the end, naturally, with a duet of a ’90s classics, because they knew it was the perfect way to wrap up this perfect battle. Enjoy!
