Madonna Gets It Just Right on Jimmy Fallon (Watch Videos) Gets Boost on Charts


Madonna is not a great stand up comedian. But she’s willing to try anything. Her appearance over night on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon was pitch perfect. She sang “Holiday” unplugged with Jimmy and the Roots on toy instruments. (All pop artists should do this with Jimmy– they come off great!)

She also put on a great version of “Bitch I’m Madonna” that landed just right. I’m impressed, and I’m not kidding. Ironically, “Rebel Heart” is out of the top 100 on iTunes. But this performance gave the album a little boost on iTunes back to Number 32 from almost off the chart.
