The Roots are backing up Jimmy?!?!

It's a mixed blessing, but seriously it might be my only reason to watch the show because whenever Fallon talks... it feels like an SNL skit.

"But ?uestlove says the band's new job has "enabled us to survive. "This would basically match or surpass what we would make touring 200-plus days out of the year. And, two, this allows us to be home," he said.... Seeing hip-hop regularly on a late show will be revolutionary in itself, but the Roots are more than a hip-hop band. Their debut "Do You Want More?!!!??!" had obvious jazz influence. The group may be best known for their Grammy-winning collaboration with Erykah Badu, "You Got Me"; Their hit off their 2002 disc "Phrenology," performed with Cody Chesnutt _ "The Seed (2.0)" _ is one of the best rock songs of the decade."
