One Direction, Jimmy Fallon, And The Roots Sing “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town” [Watch]

one direction, jimmy fallon, the roots

One Direction graced the United States, specifically New York, with their presence this weekend for Saturday Night Live with host Amy Adams and had some time to stop by The Tonight Show too.

What do you do when you have 5 musical guests come on a show? Have them sing with the roots and the Entertainer of the Year, Jimmy Fallon in a small, cramped room filled with Christmas cheer. One Direction certainly made a Monday night above average with this classic hit: “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.”

The video has only been online for under 24 hours and has already gained over 300,000 views. Must be the classroom instruments.

In case you were wondering who was responsible for what, the YouTube description helpfully listed out what instrument was played by each participant:

Jimmy Fallon – wood block, Casio keyboard
Harry – kazoo, bass drum
Niall – banana shaker
Louis – tambourine
Liam – coconuts
Zayn – triangle
Questlove – hand clackers
Mark Kelley – Fisher Price drum, kazoo
Kamal Gray – xylophone
James Poyser – melodica
Captain Kirk – ukulele
Tuba Gooding Jr. – toy saxophone
Frank Knuckles – bongos
Black Thought – sleigh bells

Well done, One Direction, well done.
