WATCH: Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jimmy Fallon Sing a Medley of 2018’s Hit Songs With a Holiday Twist


Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda stopped by the Tonight Show on Monday for a duet with host Jimmy Fallon in which 2018’s biggest songs were given a holiday twist.

“Baby, why don’t you just help me spin my dreidel?” Fallon and Miranda sang to the tune of “The Middle” — Zedd’s smash hit featuring Maren Morris and Grey. “The menorah is lit on the table. So why don’t you just help me spin my dreidel? Spin my dreidel.”

Also given the holiday treatment was “Meant to Be” — the Bebe Rexha, Florida Georgia Line chart-topper.

“He’s watching me, watching me, watching me, little elf’s watching me,” the duo sang.

Later in the show, Miranda and Fallon shared that the Tonight Show is heading down to Puerto Rico for a special broadcast on Jan. 15 to focus on hurricane recovery efforts. During the show, Miranda will reprise his role as Alexander Hamilton and perform along with the touring cast. Miranda will perform during Hamilton‘s entire three week January run in Puerto Rico.
