Mariah Carey's new power ballad "The Art of Letting Go" got a memorable boost on Tuesday evening's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon
. Fallon invited a bunch of super fans to his studio to listen to the new single en masse… with a special plan, of course.
"They have no idea," Fallon excited told the audience before airing the clip. "Mariah's going to be actually singing it live in the recording studio right next to them and she's gonna walk out…and they're gonna go crazy."
There was laughter. There were tears. Thankfully, there was no vomit.
This is not a completely original concept: Jimmy's good pal Justin Timberlake actually did the exact same thing for a Target commercial earlier this year. But that doesn't make it any less great.
