Lionel Richie had the distinct honor of having Jimmy Fallon sing to his head on Friday night’s episode of The Tonight Show.

Dressed in ’80s pastels and a ridiculous red wig, Fallon took the lead, singing Richie’s 1984 hit, “Hello” while Richie could barely make a straight face throughout.

The famous music video for the song stars Richie as an acting teacher whose blind student sculpts a likeness of his head. In the sketch, Fallon takes on the role of the sculptor and Richie, the head.
