Back when he was a cast member on Saturday Night Live and before he became Weekend Update co-host, Jimmy Fallon would often appear during the segment to perform parody songs about his favorite holidays: Halloween, Valentine’s Day, even spring break. It was just Fallon, an acoustic guitar, and a roster of pop hits with alternate lyrics (“Sex and Candy” turned into “Eggs and Candy,” for instance).

In the years since, Fallon has expanded the concept with help from Rashida Jones, who has teamed with the Tonight Show host perform a medely of pop hits turned holiday classics over the last couple of years. She was there again on Thursday night, too: Jones returned to perform alongside Fallon, The Roots, and special guests Queen Latifah, and singer Eric Nally from Macklemore’s “Downtown.” The epic singalong that followed included parodies of The Weeknd, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Drake, Bruno Mars, and many more.
