The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, known for its lively performances, seized the opportunity to celebrate the natural wonder. The iconic Times Square in New York served as the backdrop for this extraordinary one-off performance. Heart, the week’s musical guests, took the stage alongside Fallon to deliver a memorable rendition of Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart.’

With a curly mullet wig and ’80s-style visor sunglasses, Fallon immersed himself in the spirit of the iconic era. The performance took place on the rooftop of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, where the rare celestial event was unfolding. The footage captures the electric atmosphere and can be viewed below.

In anticipation of the segment, Fallon took to social media, teasing his followers about the upcoming performance. “Iconic rock duo Heart is our musical guest tonight – also there was a solar eclipse. So we did what we had to do and sang ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ with @OfficialHeart from the rooftop of @NBC during the TOTAL eclipse,” he tweeted.

Celebrities, Music, and Cosmic Wonders

Apart from Heart’s appearance, Monday’s episode of The Tonight Show also welcomed special guests Jim Parsons and Kaia Gerber. The show continues to be a platform for fostering artistic collaborations and celebrating extraordinary events.

Bonnie Tyler, the original singer of ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’, shared her delight at the song’s association with solar eclipses. In a recent interview with Good Morning America, Tyler expressed her ongoing excitement whenever she hears the hit on the radio. “Every time the eclipse comes, everyone all over the world, they play ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart,’ and I never get tired of singing it,” she revealed.

The 2024 solar eclipse brought about more musical tributes. Vampire Weekend treated their fans to a special performance at the Moody Amphitheater in Austin, Texas. Attendees were in for a pleasant surprise as the band debuted new songs and welcomed special guests from Phoenix and Chromeo on stage.

Jimmy Fallon and Heart’s outstanding performance of ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ during the 2024 solar eclipse was a remarkable tribute to both the celestial phenomenon and the timeless power of music. The excitement surrounding the eclipse has turned Bonnie Tyler’s hit into an unofficial anthem, highlighting the universal appeal that combines the wonders of science and the art of music.
