This Nintendo Labo / Ariana Grande performance makes up for Wii Music

This Nintendo Labo / Ariana Grande performance makes up for Wii Music

And now hopping on the gaming hype train is global popstar and former Nickelodeon actress Ariana Grande as she performed her single "No Tears Left to Cry" on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show using only the Nintendo Labo.

Fallon's made a notable thing out of having pop stars sing their hit songs while he and The Roots accompany on classroom instruments (Adele's is a great example).

At the Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show, it was not the first time when Nintendo Labo was used. Only they could do something like this. "You can make robots, you can make all sorts of fun stuff", Fallon said.

We made a full-on band using Labo. We asked if we could make other cardboard things like guitars and they [Nintendo] said, 'Of course! "We'll help you do it'".

With the dinky-synth beatscapes conjured by those Nintendo instruments and Fallon and the Roots' backing vocals, this version of "No Tears Left To Cry" came out sounding more like Devo than anyone could've anticipated. I'm not sure I'll catch this when it airs, but the glory of the internet age should have it uploaded shortly after.

We've already seen Nintendo Labo turn the Switch from a handheld / home console hybrid into a device that powers fantasies ranging from smashing buildings as a giant robot to calm afternoons spent fishing indoors.
