NBC Comedy Entertainment Video: Jimmy Fallon Monologue For January 7, 2014

The following NBC entertainment video comes from Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. It is Jimmy’s monologue, which is a standup comedy routine done at the beginning of each show. This monologue is from the Tuesday, January 7, 2014 episode.

This is one of the last few monologues that Jimmy will do on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. He starts The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon in February.

Part 1:

Fallon tells the audience to stay warm because we are in a polar vortex.

It is so cold that doctors are telling people to avoid drinking alcohol if they go outside. It’s a frostbite risk. But parents stuck in the house with kids are saying it’s worth the risk.

Fallon poked fun at Obama for inviting unemployed people to the White House to talk about income inequality. It shows a lot of sympathy to invite unemployed people to a huge white mansion that you live in for free.

Michelle Obama is staying at Oprah’s house in Hawaii. She told the housekeeper to make sure Michelle has clean linens at all times. Stedman said he heard her the first time.

Jimmy talked about the new Bachelor, Juan Pablo. He says their favorite contestant is Kat Hurd. They made fun of the name, which sounds like “cat turd” if you slightly mispronounce it. After meeting Kat Hurd, Juan Pablo said she smells good. Fallon said it must be the Fresh Step. Mark and Tariq, from The Roots, then reenact one of the scenes from The Bachelor.

Part 2:

Mayor Bill de Blasio wants to get rid of horse-drawn carriages in Central Park. Jimmy then sent someone out on the street to get their opinions on this issue. But they had to answer in a high-pitched voice.

Jimmy talked about Dennis Rodman, who just came back from another trip there and is now claiming that North Korea is not that bad. Even Kim Jong-Un is saying it’s kind of bad.

They showed some clips of Alex Trebek rapping some of the answers on Jeopardy. Jimmy then joked about Trebek having several different rap albums. His latest album is Trebeezus. Pat Sajak is shirtless on a motorcycle on the cover.

Justin Bieber’s new documentary, Believe, has only made about $3 million so far. That is way below his previous film. Jimmy isn’t sure where Bieber’s audience went. But he can tell him one direction he might want to look in.

YouTube Video: US X Factor 3 Top 3 Finals Performance Of Jeff Gutt – “Creep” (December 18, 2013)

The 3rd season of the X Factor (US version) had its Top 3 finals performance episode on Wednesday, December 18, 2013. The 3 finalists were Alex & Sierra, Jeff Gutt, and Carlito Olivero. The finale results show is on Thursday, December 19, 2013. The season winner will be crowned on that episode.

This article is for a performance from the December 18 finals performance show.

Contestant: Jeff Gutt

Song Choice: Radiohead’s “Creep”

Category: Overs

Mentor: Kelly Rowland

This was the last performance of the night, with Jeff closing the show. It was the Song of the Series round, which is a reprisal song. Jeff sang this during his first audition.

Select Judge Comments On This Finals (Top 3) Performance:

Demi said America should vote for Jeff. But she said that about Carlito, as well. Simon thought he did a good job, and Paulina was cheering for him. Kelly talked about what a pleasure it was to mentor Gutt.

Here were my power rankings at the beginning of the top 12, which did not include Josh Levi because he was a surprise wildcard.

1. Restless Road – Team Simon Cowell – eliminated in 4th place

2. Lillie McCloud – Team Kelly Rowland – eliminated in 8th place

3. Alex And Sierra – Team Simon Cowell – has made the top 3

4. Rion Paige – Team Demi Lovato – eliminated in 5th place

5. Jeff Gutt – Team Kelly Rowland – has made the top 3

6. Ellona Santiago – Team Demi Lovato – eliminated in 6th place

7. Rachel Potter – Team Kelly Rowland – eliminated in 11th place by judges after sing-off against Khaya Cohen

8. Tim Olstad – Team Paulina Rubio – eliminated in 9th place by judges after sing-off against Carlito Olivero

9. Carlos Guevara – Team Paulina Rubio – eliminated in 13th place

10. Carlito Olivero – Team Paulina Rubio – won sing-off in Top 10 against Tim – won sing-off in Top 6 against Rion – now in the top 4 – now in the top 3

11. Khaya Cohen – Team Demi Lovato – won sing-off against Rachel Potter, then eliminated the next week in 10th place

12. Sweet Suspense – Team Simon Cowell – eliminated in 12th place

Note: With 3 left, I would say that Alex & Sierra and Jeff Gutt are battling it out for the win, with Carlito having just about no chance. But it would be almost fitting to see Carlito win. And if you don’t know what that means, you probably think Sweet Suspense got robbed. LOL.

YouTube Video: US X Factor 3 Top 3 Finals Performance Of Alex & Sierra – “Say Something” (December 18, 2013)

This article is for a performance from the December 18 finals performance show.

Contestant: Alex & Sierra

Song Choice: “Say Something”

Category: Groups

Mentor: Simon Cowell

This was the next to last performance of the night. Carlito went third from last, and Jeff closed the show. This last round of the finals was the reprisal round (Song Of The Series). It’s only been a couple of weeks since they performed it, but I think this is the song they pretty much had to choose. It was so far ahead of everything else they did except last week’s “Gravity” song. But since “Gravity” was only last week, “Say Something” was the logical choice.

Select Judge Comments On This Finals (Top 3) Performance:

Kelly and Demi felt the performance was even better than the first time they sang it. Simon says they are what this kind of show is about. Paulina enjoys seeing how great Alex & Sierra are as musicians (Sierra played the piano, and Alex the guitar).

Demi said America should vote for Carlito. Kelly liked how he showed versatility on the night. He had some dancing but also some slower moments. Simon says Olivero could be a modern recording artist, although he didn’t feel that way before. Of course, Paulina loved it, as Carlito is her last remaining team member.

Simon said that Leona changed this show, and he thinks that Alex & Sierra can do it, as well. Kelly pretended to be mad that they are so good since she is pulling for a Jeff win (she is his mentor). Paulina loved them again. Once again, Demi was a bit negative, suggesting that they didn’t keep up with Leona. Of course, that won’t matter the next round. No matter how they sing, she will go nuts over it.

Mentor Paulina Rubio came out and performed after the first of 3 solo contestant rounds. She sang “Boys Will Be Boys.” A lot of people remarked that they thought she was lipsyncing and doing it rather badly.

Category: Boys

This was Carlito’s special duet. He sang with Prince Royce. You know, he is already the underdog, and you give him someone that I have never heard of. But when I checked, I was surprised to see that Prince Royce has 2 million followers on Twitter. But even still, they could be from other countries. He is obviously not a household name among mainstream U.S. TV viewers.

This song was the 4th of 9 solo performances, which was the 1st in the 2nd round.
