Ariana Grande To Perform Using Nintendo Labo Instruments On The Tonight Show
When Nintendo first debuted its ‘Nintendo Labo’ many dismissed the line of DIY products, with even a German Ratings Board mistaking it as garbage. Of course, any product – no matter how silly it is – can become highly marketable with enough celebrity endorsements, which seems to be exactly what’s going on on tonight’s episode of The Tonight Show. Host Jimmy Fallon is getting together with Ariana Grande and The Roots to perform a special rendition of her song No Tears Left to Cry using only Nintendo Labo-based instruments.
In a recent interview with IGN, Jimmy Fallon revealed his impressions on Nintendo Labo, along with the company’s willingness to assist in creating a full-on band using the products. “We made af ull-on band using Labo,” Fallon said. “I love that Nintendo does stuff like this. I mean what is this? Why would you even think of this? Only they could do something like this.”
We met with Nintendo and they showed us a bunch of cool cardboard things that you can make. We used the Variety Kit and we made a keyboard. We asked if we could make other cardboard things like guitars and they [Nintendo] said, ‘Of course! We’ll help you do it.'”
Getting Jimmy Fallon on board is one thing, but what about the ‘dangerous woman’ herself, Ariana Grande? “It was totally bizarre and such a gamble,” said Fallon. “I didn’t know if it was going to sound good, but Ariana is always down to try something fun and different. Anyone can do what we did really, it just takes time. Whatever you dream of, you can make it.”
The full performance of No Tears Left to Cry will be broadcast on tonight’s episode of The Tonight Show on NBC at 11:35 Eastern. Those interested can go to NBC’s website to see a sneak peek of what’s in store. For those looking to pick up a Nintendo Labo Variety Kit for themselves, you can do so here.
