Lauryn Hill Joins the Weeknd on Fallon for the Grammys Performance That Could Have Been

Lauryn Hill was set for a surprise performance of “In the Night” with the Weeknd at the Grammys earlier this week, which became less of a surprise when a photo of the two performing together leaked, and then not a performance at all when Hill showed up too late to take the stage. Luckily, Jimmy Fallon, champion of reunions, spinner of dreams, brought Hill and the Weeknd back together on the Tonight Show last night to do that duet. The result is as astounding as you might expect, as Hill does vocal backflips around Abel Tesfaye’s sustained melody. All is right with the world (except the results of the Grammys, but we will talk about that later).
