Video: Google Translate Songs with Idris Elba
-If you've ever — If you've ever used Google Translate, you know it's not always perfect. For example, when translated to Latvian and back, "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" becomes "This is Jimmy Fallon's Show Tonight." So we did the same thing with popular song lyrics. Some people have done this online. It's super fun. We're gonna try this right now. Idris, you're my guest, so you are up first. Here's your microphone. -Oh, really? Oh, that's nice. -Yeah, very — of course. You, uh, you're our guest. -Yeah, no, I'm the guest.

For this last one, let's do a duet. -Yeah, okay. -Is that good? -Mm-hmm. -This is — this is… [ Cheers and applause ] This is "I'll Make Love to You" by Boyz II Men, but we'll be singing the translated version, which is called "I'll Place Kindness on You." -Boom. -"I'll Place Kindness on You."
