Maroon 5 and Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon surprised NYC subway commuters by performing "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" inside the 50th Street subway station. The stars concealed themselves as ordinary buskers with an impromptu concert as crowds started to gather around them even before they revealed their identities.
Onlookers were completely taken by surprise when Fallon and Levine took off their disguises prompting huge gasps, cheers, and laughter from the audience. Fallon entertained and engaged the audience with selfies and back vocals whereas the Maroon 5 frontman was more focused on performing.
Before Fallon ditched his disguise at the end of the song, he said "'We're gonna do one more song for you guys,' 'But first I'd just like to say hello, my name is Jimmy Fallon!'
Commuters dashed across to be serenaded by Levine and Fallon, with cell phones ready to record and share the impromptu concert.
