Scarlett Johansson busts out spot-on Cher impersonation while promoting Sing 2 on NBC talk show
Scarlett Johansson busted out a spot-on Cher impersonation on Thursday while promoting Sing 2 on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The 37-year-old actress appeared remotely on the NBC talk show wearing a plain orange sweater with her blonde hair pulled back into a ponytail.
Jimmy, 47, complimented Scarlett for being ‘very funny’ in the movie and asked her if it was true that she does a Cher impersonation.
‘Yeah. I do a Cher impersonation. Yeah, I do. I do,’ Scarlett confirmed.
‘I haven’t broken it out in a while. I don’t think I’ve broken it out since I got my tonsils removed,’ she added of her impersonation of the 75-year-old singer.
Jimmy asked which song she impersonates and Scarlett cleared her throat before she started singing Cher’s 1998 hit song Believe.
‘What am I supposed, I don’t know, to do, sit around and wait for you?,’ Scarlett crooned as she locked in on her Cher voice.
‘Well, I can’t do that, there’s no turning back,’ she continued holding the last note.
‘No way, my god, hey that was it!,’ Jimmy said.
‘That’s not bad,’ Scarlett admitted.
The Black Widow star told Jimmy that she did karaoke for her recent 37th birthday last month.
The New York City native said she likes to start out with something a little bit ‘intimate, emotional’ like a Fleetwood Mac song.
‘Like maybe Landslide so people are like, ”Whoa!” Kind of everybody is in the room now,’ Scarlett said.
Scarlett said she then likes to ramp it up with ‘a Billy Joel song like when we’re maybe three tequila shots in.’
‘And then after that, I like to bring the group together and everybody join in for a rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody. And we do all the different clips,’ Scarlett said.
The actress also talked about her seven-year-old daughter Rose’s reaction to having four-month-old sibling Cosmo and what it was like to meet her idol Judge Judy.
Scarlett in Sing 2 reprises her role as porcupine punk rocker Ash who gets to meet her hero Clay Calloway, a white-maned aged lion and former rock star played by Bono, 61.
The sequel also brings back the voices of Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Nick Kroll, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, Nick Offerman and writer-director Garth Jennings.
The sequel also features new characters voiced by Bobby Cannavale, Halsey, Pharrell Williams, Letitia Wright, Eric André and Chelsea Peretti.
Sing 2 is scheduled to be released in US theaters on Wednesday by Universal Pictures.
