Charli XCX was Jimmy Fallon’s musical guest on Thursday night’s (Sept. 28) The Tonight Show to perform her current single “Boys.”
“Boys” is known most for its star-studded music video featuring, yes, boys — but really famous boys: Joe Jonas, Charlie Puth, Brendon Urie, Khaid, G-Eazy, Mark Ronson, Amine, MiC LOWRY, Cameron Dallas and many more.
Charli didn’t bring those boys to the Fallon’s stage, but she was joined by a group of men dressed in oversized white dress shirts in Tom Cruise Risky Business-style. Charli wore a patterned jumpsuit, impressive sparkly patent leather platforms and black sunglasses throughout the performance, while the boys sat on bleachers behind her. The performance — in line with the music video — was a role-reversal in an industry in which women are typically the ones exposing themselves.
