The chart-topping pop singer covered her face with a gigantic bow, as she is wont to do, but Fallon and the members of the Roots also disguised themselves behind the black-and-blond wigs that have adorned Sia’s recent singles. Even fellow The Tonight Show guest Natalie Portman joined the performance; she’s credited in the song description for playing “blocks.”
