  • -Welcome back. I always say our show is lucky

  • to have the greatest band in late night,

  • The Roots, right there, ladies and gentlemen.

  • [ Cheers and applause ]

  • But it isn't always fun and games.

  • From time to time, we put The Roots to the test.

  • So we went online and asked people if anyone wanted

  • The Roots to write a song about them on the spot.

  • And we picked three random fans who are here with us today.

  • It is time for a virtual "Freestylin' with The Roots"!

  • -♪ Time to freestyle with The Roots

  • -Hey, Roots, you guys ready to do this?

  • [ All mumbling indistinctly ]

  • -Here we go. Let's meet our first fan up here.

  • Hello. What is your name, and where are you right now?

  • -Hi, Jimmy! Hi, legendary Roots crew.

  • I'm Karen. -Hi, Karen.

  • She said shout-out to the legendary Roots crew.

  • Karen, where are you right now?

  • -I'm in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

  • -Ah, love it.

  • Living on Tulsa time?

  • -Living on Tulsa time.

  • -That's what I'm talking about, bud.

  • Now, Karen, last week, Daft Punk broke up

  • after being together for 28 years.

  • They put on amazing shows.

  • Who was the first concert that you ever went to?

  • -My first concert ever was Hanson.

  • -Wow. Oh, my --

  • Wow.

  • That's -- -Yes.

  • -That is fantastic.

  • I love that. Hanson.

  • What's something that you think that you probably yelled

  • at that concert?

  • -"I love you, Taylor!"

  • -Yeah, "I love you, Taylor!"

  • Roots, we have our pal Karen here.

  • Her first concert she went to was Hanson. I love that.

  • And during the concert, she yelled, "I love you, Taylor!"

  • Since Daft Punk just broke up,

  • can we do a song for Karen

  • in the style of, like, Daft Punk, or "Get Lucky" or --

  • ♪♪

  • Okay, Karen is her name, freestylin' is the game

  • She came in from Tulsa, Oklahoma

  • And right now, it's bound to get ugly

  • and each episode has taken place in a different decade.

  • If you could go back and live in any decade,

  • which would you choose?

  • -Oh, that's a good question.

  • I think it would be fun to be in like the "Mad Men" '60s,

  • right? Not all the stuff of "Mad Men,"

  • but a little bit of it would be cool.

  • -Yeah, boozing at work and everything? Yeah, why not?

  • "Mad Men" '60s, advertising, love it.

  • And who is one historical figure you would want to meet?

  • -Ooh. That's a good question.

  • I share a birthday with Abraham Lincoln,

  • and I think it would be cool to meet Abe Lincoln.

  • -Oh, of course. I would love to meet Lincoln.

  • Okay, guys. Here we go.

  • And he would love to meet Abraham Lincoln.

  • Not in the '60s.

  • -Okay. -Yeah, when Lincoln was alive.

  • And so, but this one, Post Malone just released
