Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Perform “Downtown” On Fallon’s “Tonight Show” (Watch)

A “Tonight Show” episode that featured visits from Justin Timberlake and Ellen DeGeneres (who participated in “History of Hip-Hop 6” and a Lip Sync Battle, respectively) closed with a live rendition of “Downtown.”

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed the Top 20 single with the track’s numerous featured collaborators. While the performance was not without imperfections, it came across like an absolute party — and justly represented the elaborate, yet infinitely fun new single.

A video of the performance follows. Photos from NBC’s “Tonight Show” taping are also embedded.
