Jimmy Fallon has gone Linsane. This isn’t the first time his enthusiasm for something has led to a musical number.

Known for his celebrity impersonations and musical abilities, Jimmy Fallon’s no stranger to segments like this. During last night’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the host took on Pearl Jam’s “Jeremy,” rewriting the lyrics to pay tribute to Knicks player Jeremy Lin. And he took the performance a step further than just the song, not only sporting a wig and impersonating Vedder's voice and microphone cradling pose, but also performing in dramatic lighting, somewhat similar to the video for the original song (which is actually a pretty dark tune). It’s also not unlike his Tim Tebow tribute, inspired by David Bowie.
“Spike Lee’s on the sidelines cheering. And tickets to a game cost 800 bucks, now that the Knicks are winning. It’s a miracle....”
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon airs weeknights at 12:35 a.m. Et on NBC.
