Pharrell Performed ‘Freedom’ on the Outdoor ‘Tonight Show’ Marquee

Becoming the first entertainer to utilize Jimmy Fallon's midtown space

Pharrell is a man of many talents — singer, producer, designer, age defier — and last night he brought his skills to new heights when he became the first singer to perform atop Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show outdoor marquee in midtown Manhattan. Launching into his current single “Freedom,” the 42-year-old brought a full band and backup dancers with him as fans in ponchos writhe in the rain below.

Here’s the thing: “Freedom” just isn’t a great song, but you’ve got to give it to Pharrell for promoting the hell out of it for the past several months. Watch his Tonight Show performance below.
