Andrew Rannells and Jimmy Fallon are looking back at the mess that was 2020.
The 42-year-old Boys in the Band actor stopped The Tonight Show on Monday (December 7) to recap the year with the help of Broadway songs.
In their musical sketch, Andrew and Jimmy sing about the pandemic, self-isolating at home, spending too much time on the game Animal Crossing.
“2020, oh what a journey,” Jimmy started. “How has one year felt like 30?” He then breaks in to songs with lyrics that included activities that we weren’t able to do because of the pandemic, like “seeing a concert,” “shopping for bedding” and attending a family reunion on a Disney cruise.
Andrew then joins in singing about Zoom meeting: “On top I’m dressed, waist down I’m a mess, I’m ready to work from home.”
“I think that I’m losing my sanity… I gotta leave this house,” the two sing together.
Set to tune of “Memory” from Cats, Jimmy sings: “Memories, drinking lattes at Starbucks…Sitting crammed into tables, with nowhere to put my arms.”
The recap musical also included the election, Moderna vaccine and attending outdoor birthday parties.
“When 2020 started it was supposed to be my year,” Andrew sings. “So, what happened? Took a shower once a month, while trembling in fear, God what happened? A Virus that infects the entire world.”
