When Jennifer Lawrence performed her latest choreographed stumble in London, I didn’t even bother lifting up the score card with a giant zero on it. It was such a pathetic attempt, and it was sad seeing the one-time Legend of the Falls fall from grace with that half-assed stumble. Maybe Jennifer Lawrence just needs a little inspiration, and so she should pull up a chair and watch rejected Mouseketeer turned pop person Meghan Trainor bust her ass on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night.
Two painful things happened during Meghan’s performance: She sang that eardrum-bruising song “Me Too” and her ankle turned on her by causing her bass to go boom. Meghan’s fall gets a solid 7.5 from me. Trick gave us ankle wiggling, a hair flip and a shriek. After Meghan’s ass ate floor, Jimmy Fallon turned himself into Jimmy Fallin’ by lying next her. Meghan is fine and didn’t die, so it’s okay to laugh, and then re-watch it and laugh, and then re-watch it again and laugh, and then re-watch it again and laugh X 300,000.
Because I care about your nerves and don’t want you to hurt yourself by listening to the song, the lead-up to the fall starts at the 3:40 mark.
You’re probably wondering why Meghan just didn’t Photoshop that fall out of her performance. Meghan said on Good Morning America today that she re-shot the performance, but they decided to go with that one. Because you know, a Meghan Trainor performance on its own is about as exciting as flavorless oatmeal made with tap water, but add in a fall and it’s instantly entertaining. America runs on pop tricks falling.
