Crosby, Stills, Nash, and ‘Young’ Cover Iggy Azalea’s ‘Fancy’ on ‘Jimmy Fallon’
California folkies take Aussie rapper's hit to 'The Tonight Show'
Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young released their live box set CSNY 1974 this week on Rhino and in celebration they headed to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday for renditions of a few classic tracks. Well, sort of. The real Neil Young wasn’t on hand for the performances this time, so Jimmy Fallon brought his pitch-perfect impression to a cover of Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” with the trio.
Fallon’s reedy approximation of Young’s iconic vocalizations are as spot-on as ever, and with CSN’s saintly harmonies in tow, he somehow manage to recast the Aussie rapper’s chart-topping track as a melancholic folk chorale.
Crosby, Stills, and Nash also performed their own “Teach Your Children” and “So Begins the Task,” both of which you can see below. The folky “Fancy” is up above.
