Television is a magic medium. It's also evil. And sometimes shitty.
But really, who thought that Ricky Martin and the Roots would ever hook up? No one. And yet, thanks to TV (and the fact that Questlove's crew decided they needed a day job), we're all gonna get to watch a massively unlikely one-night stand between the Latin pop star, a half-dozen black dudes, and one very famous 'fro.
Tune into NBC's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight around 1:25 a.m. and try not to look away as they all jam away at Martin's new single "The Best Thing About Me Is You."
Will it be magic? Evil? Shitty? All three?
