Leave it to Jimmy Fallon to take the Super Bowl fever to a different level.

Everybody knows that the Queen’s “We Are the Champions” is always associated to winning. With the Patriots winning their fourth Super Bowl title, “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” thought it would be nice put an a cappella cover of the song with some of his friends for the show’s post-Super Bowl episode. He got so many friends, and the only way fit all of them in this video clip is to divide the screen into nine small tiles. The video looks awesome!

The screen was divided like the opening credits from the TV show “The Brady Bunch.” Fallon sang the first line of the song with show’s house band, The Roots, providing a sick background rhythm with only their mouths. Fallon’s tile flips, and Carrie Underwood came in to sing, which was immediately followed right after by current pop music darlings Sam Smith and Ariana Grande. As the song went on, more singing superstars came on the tile like “The Voice” coaches Blake Shelton and Usher, pop singer Meghan Trainor and boy band One Direction. Also making an appearance to the video was Christina Aguilera, who made an memorable part with a soulful final chorus at the grand finale of the song. Just when you think that “hey look at Ariana giving some soul, then comes Christina and BRINGS THE LIFE out that line.” Plus the comeback coach of “The Voice was looking pretty fab.
