The classroom musical instruments craze on “The Tonight Show” presented another performance with Meghan Trainor. This is following the success of “on classroom instruments” performances with Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” Idina Menzel’s “Let It Go” and Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.”
Host Jimmy Fallon and the house band The Roots joined Trainor in singing the Billboard chart-topper, “All About That Bass,” in classroom musical instruments tradition. The performance, which got more than 10 million views and more than a 10,000 shares on YouTube shows Trainor on vocals and triangle with Jimmy Fallon on the digital keyboard, bass drum and wood block. The rest of the gang used hand clappers, kazoo, xylophone, melodica, ukulele, bongos, shakers and tambourine. The mixed sounds and tunes brought the catchy song to a new level according to Time magazine.
Why is the song so popular? Check out Vulture’s list here. Trainor’s “All About That Bass” was known for its catchy tune and message — women of all sizes and shapes should be on the vibe and should love their body as it is.
