Comedy talk show host Jimmy Fallon has got quite the back catalogue of live performances that are arguably better than the originals.

His house band The Roots have backed all manner of big names and most recently created a version of Miley Cyrus's single that we don't actually hate!

So, we thought it only right to compile the top five best collaborations.

Miley Cyrus and The Roots: We Can't Stop

The combination of the a capella backing singing and Miley hitting all the notes and this ends up not being a bad track. Can you believe it?!



Robin Thicke and The Roots: Blurred Lines

Robin Thicke had his fair share of backlash for the lyrics to the rap in his track. So what did The Roots do? They switched it up and changed demeaning lines for words about a girl with "brains, looks and attitude". Much better.



Obama and The Roots: The News - Slow Jam

US president Barack Obama has one of the most recognisable voices in the world. So what better thing to do than turn it into a comedy slow jam. Jimmy Fallon steals the show a bit here, Mr President.



Justin Timberlake and The Roots: The History Of Rap

Who do you go to for a definitive history of rap in 18 minutes? Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots. Also, not strictly the roots, but Justin also appears in a barber shop performance of Sexy Back which is well worth a watch.



Mariah Carey and The Roots: All I Want For Christmas Is You

For anyone who wants to get into the Christmas spirit already, it's time for Mariah. It's fit with festive jumpers, cute kids and a kazoo.



Compilation album anyone?
