Lizzo is one of Jimmy Fallon's favorite new artists. On Tuesday, The Tonight Show host said so while introducing the irrepressible rapper/singer/flautist, who performed "Juice" for a national TV audience.
Did the rocketing, Minneapolis-launched star provide a rump-shaking, ass-slapping good time? You better believe it. But don't take our word for it:
Folks! She turned into a dang disco ball.
The performance clearly tickled Fallon, who giddily exclaimed afterward: "That is how you do it! Show-stopper! Standing ovation! Not bad! Oh, unbelievable!"
Hitting up The Tonight Show was the latest publicity stop as Lizzo gears up for the release of Cuz I Love You, her new album that's due out April 19 via Atlantic Records. She'll show it off May 5 at St. Paul's Palace Theatre.
On Sunday, Lizzo appeared in New York Magazine under the headline "It’s Just a Matter of Time Till Everybody Loves Lizzo" (the spread features some striking butt photography). Last week, she treated The Ellen DeGeneres Show to a live rendition of "Juice."
Lizzo, 30, has come a very long way since winning our humble Picked to Click prize back in 2013.
