Macklemore & Ryan Lewis had three chances to strut their stuff when they appeared as the musical guests overnight on Jimmy Kimmel Live

The hip-hop duo dared the audience to dance like nobody’s watching as they delivered an energetic rendition of their new single, “Dance Off,” lifted from This Unruly Mess I've Made.

Though guest vocalist Idris Elba wasn’t in the house, an oversize gent and a seemingly pregnant woman did take up the challenge as they stepped up from the crowd to deliver their own dance routines. Watch the clip below.
The pair also performed the 2015 hit “Downtown” and stuck around for an edition of “Name That Thing,” where Kimmel prompts famous people to identify not-so-famous objects. They competed with comedy actor Dax Shepard and completed the round by answering a particularly cheesy question. Watch the clips below.
