Google Translate Songs with Idris Elba


-If you’ve ever — If you’ve
ever used Google Translate, you know it’s not
always perfect. For example, when translated
to Latvian and back, “The Tonight Show
Starring Jimmy Fallon” becomes “This is Jimmy Fallon’s
Show Tonight.” So we did the same thing with
popular song lyrics. Some people have done this
online. It’s super fun. We’re gonna try this right now. Idris, you’re my guest,
so you are up first. Here’s your microphone. -Oh, really?
Oh, that’s nice. -Yeah, very — of course. You, uh, you’re our guest. -Yeah, no, I’m the guest.
Okay. -You will be singing
the Google Translate version of “Baby Got Back”
by Sir Mix A Lot. [ Cheers and applause ] Translated, it is called
“The Baby Escaped.” [ Laughter ] -Okay.
-Roots. -Check one, check one. ♪ Unh, unh ♪ [ “Baby Got Back” plays ] Okay, okay. [ Cheers and applause ] I-I mean…
-That was fantastic. -Did anyone understand
anything I said? -No. Yeah,
that’s the fun of it. That’s the fun of it.
-Okay. -All right. All right.
It is — it is my turn. Here we go. I’ll be performing the Google
Translated version of the 1998 Britney Spears’
classic “Baby, One More Time.” -Boom. [ Cheers and applause ] -Which is now called
“Meet My Kids.” [ Laughter ] Here we go. [ “One More Time” plays ] [ Cheers and applause ] [ Cheers and applause ] -Yo, you scratched that.
-That was heartfelt. -Well done.
-Yeah. -Wow.
-That was heartfelt. You felt that?
-Yeah, I did. -That really came
from the heart. -I think that Google Translates. There must be a few poets
that work there. -Yeah. Beautiful poetry. For this last one,
let’s do a duet. -Yeah, okay.
-Is that good? -Mm-hmm.
-This is — this is… [ Cheers and applause ] This is “I’ll Make Love to You”
by Boyz II Men, but we’ll be singing
the translated version, which is called “I’ll Place
Kindness on You.” -Boom. -“I’ll Place Kindness
on You.” Roots. [ “I’ll Make Love to You”
plays ] -Ladies and gentlemen,
here we go. -♪ Oh, whoa ♪ ♪ Whoa, ohh, ohh ♪ ♪ Ay, yi, yi, yi ♪ ♪ Love on ♪ -Ladies,
I’ll always love you. -♪ Forever ♪ -No matter what you do, I’m gonna place kindness
on you. ♪ Love you, love you ♪ -And your heart
will always be mine. -Idris Elba, everybody.
-Thank you very much. -“The Dark Tower” is in theaters
this Friday. Stick around. We’ll be right back
with Ali Wentworth.

  1. Call me weird but I'd give anything for a rom com where Idris Elba and John Krasinski star as two High School teachers who fall in love

  2. You copied Malinda Kathleen Reese! She started the google translate sings series back in 2014!!! #JimmyFallonCopiesMalinda

  3. The translated Baby One More Time makes me laugh so much it hurts. "Here is a kid who should have been kept hidden…and now that kid is blind, yeah" LMAO

  4. This is the Latvian translation!!!
    Oh, baby

    Oh, baby

    Oh, kid, as I knew

    That something was not here

    Oh baby, baby, I shouldn't let you go

    And now you're out of sight, yes

    Show me how you want it

    Tell me that now I need to know, yes, because

    My loneliness kills me (and I)

    I must admit that I still believe (still believe)

    When I am not with you, I lose my mind

    Give me a sign

    Load me again, little

    Oh, baby

    The reason I breathe is for you

    The boy you blind me

    Oh pretty baby

    Nothing I wouldn't have done

    It's not the way I plan it

    Show me how you want it

    Tell me that now I need to know, yes, because

    My loneliness kills me (and I)

    I must admit that I still believe (still believe)

    When I am not with you, I lose my mind

    Give me…

  5. Gotta say… I'm a little disappointed in Idris that he participated in yet another of Fallon's fake-spontaneous acts.

  6. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ OMGπŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ I love it thoughπŸ’žπŸ’ž

  7. Just when I thought things couldn't get any better than Idris singing whatever that was, Jimmy once again, surprised me. Oh wait, there's a duet….

  8. "Baby one more time" to "meet my kids"πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    And "One day I will meet my kids"πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  9. it sounds like a parent was in shock and had a stroke at the same time while their baby escaped then finally snapped out of it a yelled β€œTHE BABY ESCAPED!!!”

  10. Idris married Somali girl. Way cool! He's know American aboriginals r a hot mess. Why u think Tyler did what he did but I'm not saying he's anything like Idris but these woman don't blast their men. I like Idrises gray much better. This was defiantly not his cool nazzy way to dress knock them dead look. I guess he really didn't want to upstage the host like we know he can grey hair,beard and all. Love u Idris!
