Chris Christie acquired some new nicknames Wednesday.
The Love Gov. CC. Christie Kreme, a play off of the popular donut brand … y’know, because of his weight and all.
But during his latest appearance on late-night television, New Jersey’s governor didn’t chomp on pastries. Instead he slow-jammed the news with Jimmy Fallon and company, using song and setup to explain the state’s upcoming special election to fill late Sen. Frank Lautenberg’s seat.
That special election – held three weeks before Election Day – will cost NJ taxpayers $12 million. Opponents argue that the special election was devised to bolster Christie’s own re-election chances.
Backstage before the show, Jimmy, Mariah Carey, and The Roots grabbed some instruments you’d find in an elementary school classroom and stopped by the Late Night “Music Room” to sing Mariah’s holiday classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.”
Pretty freakin’ cool. Jepsen’s song ‘Call Me Maybe‘ is blowing up radio all over the world, and for good reason. It may end the year as the catchiest single of 2012. The song is from her album Curiosity.
In this version, in the ‘Music Room’ backstage before the show ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’, Jimmy, Carly Rae Jepsen, and The Roots grabbed some instruments you’d find in an elementary school classroom and performed her hit smash single.
