Colbert

Makes Black's 'Friday'

Into Awesome Jam

4/2/2011 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Stephen Colbert is truly a magician -- because with the help of Jimmy Fallon, The Roots and a special "American Idol" guest, he managed to turn the Rebecca Black song "Friday" into ... dare we say it ... a good song.

Awesome???..It was not awesome. Nice thing to do for charity but there was nothing special about it at all. We have seen this sort of "performance" a million times before including the opening spotlight, group encore and balloon drop at the end. Cliched would be a more accurate description. Fallon can at times be funny but he has a hard time cutting his old SNL ties. His show CONSTANTLY has his SNL cronies on which is odd cause no one really thinks SNL is funny anymore. In all it comes off as very high school.

Hey Now    

I thought that was too funny. Good for them. & how can you sing that song w/those lyrics and not come off as high schoolish? lol I think that's the point! They succeeded in making it entertaining.

If it came off as high school-ish then that's a compliment to Rebecca Black because she's only in middle school. :)

I just think the whole thing is so cute - the whole response and parodies and all the hoopla. I'm happy for her. It's also an innocent song - innocent subject and its just funny to me. Good job Jimmy & Stephen!

This was hilarious. Those guys who criticize the singing or the production miss the point. It's supposed to be enjoyable and funny... and raise money for schools. I think that's pretty good.

I loved it!! Fallons band could make any song good, I think and Hicks was the magic touch. He lights up any stage.
