Exclusive

Jimmy Fallon shreds guitar in Golden Globes promo outtakes

Jimmy Fallon should be polished and prepared to host the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards next month. It will not have been done without his fair share of preparation — and it wasn’t always easy.

In an exclusive outtakes clip, Fallon is seen working out the kinks during promo shoots for the award show. Like his Mr. Magoo-like glasses.

“Hi, I’m Jimmy Fallon, and here’s something I won’t be doing on the Golden Globes,” he says before putting on the specs and uttering baby-like nonsense.

Later, he picks up an acoustic guitar and strums a few out-of-tune chords and sings a few out-of-tune lines, eventually doing his best Eddie Van Halen impression. “You get the idea,” he humbly adds.

See the video below. The Golden Globes air live on Sunday, Jan. 8 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
