The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has kicked it up a notch for the holiday seasons. They had Miley Cyrus playing ‘Name That Song‘ challenge a week ago and now Hailee Steinfeld joins the host Jimmy Fallon to play ‘Beat Battle.’
For those unaware, ‘Beat Battle’ is a challenge where two players have to keep on singing different songs on to the same beat played by the show’s live band-The Roots. The first contestant who is unable to sing a song to the beat or is unable to come up with a song at all, loses.
Hailee Steinfeld is no stranger to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon show. She appeared on the show in 2017 and in 2016 to talk about her personal life and movies. This time around, she not only played the game, she also performed her hit single “Back To Life” from the upcoming ‘Bumblebee’ movie.
