Macklemore & Ryan Lewis turned the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon inside out on Wednesday. The Seattle duo decided to throw on the suit and tie, starting off their performance of “Dance Off” in an office setting, grabbing some friends before moving through the lobby of Rockefeller Center before blasting through The Tonight Show studio stage.

From there, it turned into quite a dance party as the audience clapped along and cheered Macklemore’s every move. The appearance was in support of the pair’s No. 1 album, This Unruly Mess I’ve Made. Watch the performance, plus Macklemore & Ryan Lewis going head-to-head against Elle Fanning and Steve Higgins in a game of Catchphrase below.

the night of

HBO have given us a first proper look at their upcoming crime drama, The Night Of. Directed by Steven Zaillian and based on the BBC’s Criminal Justice, the eight-part mini-series revolves around a Pakistani-American man who stands accused of killing a woman he barely knows, “all the while examining the criminal justice system and the purgatory of Rikers Island.” Picture an NYC version of True Detective, without the unnecessarily complicated storyline of whatever that second season was supposed to be.

Starring British actor Riz Ahmed, John Turturro and Michael K. Williams, The Night Of premieres on HBO on July 10.

lil b dangelo russell

After answering our prayers and giving the world an update on Frank Ocean earlier this week, the Based God turned his omnipotent powers to the NBA last night as blessed ESPN’s SportsNation with his presence.

Lil B’s enduring curse has already knocked Kevin Durant and James Harden out of this year’s playoffs (and for many to come, no doubt), but SportsNation wanted to know who else is on the Based God’s hit list? Despite coming off their worst season in history, the Based God showed no mercy to the Lakers by officially cursing their future floor general-slash-bro-code-breaker D’Angelo Russell live on air.

Rubbing salt in Lakers fans’ wounds, Lil B went on to call the Clippers a “great organization” and prophesied that “next year things will shapen up” for CP3 and co.

obama slow jam the news

While Donald Trump is usually the one dishing out the insults (as was the case on Twitter yesterday, which prompted a devastating response from Hillary Clinton), the current President of the United States shared the nation’s delight in publicly mocking Mr. Drumpf on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. Making his second cameo in “Slow Jam the News,” Obama reflected on his last eight years in the oval office before turning his smooth pipes to one potential successor in particular. Sorry Donald, but orange is not the new black up in The White House.

After appearances on The Tonight Show, Ellen, and hosting Saturday Night Live, Drake continued his recent promo run by appearing on NBC’s Maya & Marty. During the “Celebrity Sensations” segment, the OVO rapper gets probed by host Jiminy Glick (played by Martin Short in a fat suit), answering various awkward, weird, and uncomfortable questions.

Drake is confronted about his past as an actor, his government name, and the subject of circumcision comes up, relating to his Jewish background. “You’re a Jewish rapper. Isn’t that wonderful, Do you miss the hood. And when I say hood, I mean your foreskin,” says Glick. “You’re a Canadian former child star. So literally we’re talking about zero street cred,” Jiminy soon follows up with, before offering the Drizzy some donuts.

Watch the hilarious segment below.
