[ laughter ] could get pretty wild. pro, it's a giant party for mexicans held in the u.s. con, mexicans aren't invited. [ laughter ] weird, doesn't seem right. pro, cinco de mayo is spanish for "the 5th of may." con, seis de mayo is spanish for "i'm never drinking again." [ laughter ] i've said that before. pro, it commemorates the mexican army's unlikely victory over the french forces in pueblo on may 5th 1862 under the leadership of mexican general ignacio zaragoza seguin.
con, shut up and pass the cuervo, professor. [ laughter ] get to the point. pro, for one day, it's like we're mexicans. con, and we're all wanted by the arizona police. [ laughter ] kind of puts a damper on things but you can still have fun. pro, can you really take advantage of some great happy hour specials after work. con, and then get taken advantage of by one of the cougars in accounting. [ laughter ] you know what i'm talk about. >> steve: might not be a con. >> jimmy: pro, bob dylan mentioned cinco de mayo in one of his songs. con, unfortunately, it sounds like he's saying cinco dos --.

[ laughter ] they're an oily bunch. a lot of sun tan stuff on them. and finally, pro, who knows, you could get lucky at the bar and big up a spicy senorita. con, and wake up with a burning sensation south of the border.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: really. >> and "glee" happened. >> jimmy: gosh, i've got to say you are phenomenal in "glee." >> thank you, and i watch "6-bee" all the time. >> jimmy: oh you do? you saw it? >> yeah, they do. it's awesome. we watch it all the time. we were like "it's incredibly accurate and it's amazing." >> jimmy: we spoofed "glee," it was ridiculous. us and parts of the cast of "parks and recreation." and we had a battle. >> and even your dance routines are so to the tee, like exactly what we do. like, we basically just stand in one place and move our arms around a lot for most of us who are not really great dancers. >> jimmy: yeah, yeah, yeah. >> we make it look great and you guys looked awesome too. >> jimmy: you were like -- i'm obsessed with the show and i even like have it, i download it on apple tv just so i can watch the whole thing over and over again. you're so talented. >> thanks. >> jimmy: you can sing, it's unbelievable. >> thank you. >> jimmy: you always were acting since you were a kid on broadway. >> yeah, uh-huh. 8 years old. >> jimmy: 8 years old? >> yeah, "les mis" was my first show. >> jimmy: wow. >> yeah, so i knew i was a singer, but like i said, liked to perform on stage, i never
thought that there would be a television show that was so open to all different kinds of people. i was always told i didn't look the right way for television, i was too ethnic and brian murphy with this television show just really like, opened the doors to, you know, to everybody. >> jimmy: yeah, to everybody. it was great. but i mean, i saw you in "spring awakening." >> yes. >> jimmy: so, a lot of people probably -- you probably got a lot of attention from that one, right? >> yeah, that was the last show i did in new york and, you know, it was a wonderful success. and, actually, jonathan groff, who is on "glee" with me now, he's here with me today. >> jimmy: yeah, i just saw him back there. >> and is backstage. >> jimmy: very cool. >> and he's with me on "glee" with me now too, so that's really awesome. >> jimmy: i mean, that's so amazing, and you play kind of a nerdy character. >> yes. >> jimmy: but really cute nerdy character. >> thank you, i try to make it a little, you know. >> jimmy: no, i love you. i love your character, but you're always getting the slushy thrown on you. >> i know, but i was going to ask you. was that a real slushy that you had thrown at you. >> jimmy: don't tell me you used fake slushies. >> wait, no, we use real slushies. but you were so calm. that literally takes the air -- it's so cold.
i had to recover for days and i looked like avatar, afterwards too. it was like, it changed my body. and it like dripped down and i take off my clothes and my entire body is covered in blue, and the only way to get it off is cover yourself with gillette shaving cream. it's like, a whole disaster. so did you do that? you did? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yes, did i that. >> that's all? why didn't you say. >> jimmy: that was before i even got the slushy thrown on me. >> oh, my god. that's crazy. >> jimmy: well that's new york. you know, things happen. >> you were just so cool about it. i was like, that's not real. >> jimmy: no, we totally -- well we have to do it, like, right after the show, we have a couple of hours to do it. so it was like, you got to do it in one take or else you've got to move on. >> well, the first time we did it, we did it in one take. after that, it mysteriously took more than one take. >> jimmy: do you have a hard time not breaking or starting to laugh when it happens? >> no, because i get so nervous, i think i'm going to pee my pants. the fear of it. i get so nervous before it happens, my stomach starts to turn. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and it's just not good. so i like to just, like, get it over with. >> jimmy: we had a guy, the second time we did the slushy thing, and he was just a -- we hired him that day and he was
nervous and we said "all right, just come in, throw the slushy and get out." he's like "okay." >> yeah. >> jimmy: i can throw up here. no, just throw it across here. okay, no problem. throw it there and act like you do it to me every day. no big deal. we got like a half hour to do this whole thing. he's like "all right, yeah." just throw and leave it. yes, right here. he goes "okay, no problem." everyone ready. ready. we're rolling camera. rolling. he comes walking in and he goes -- and he falls down. >> oh. >> jimmy: slushy all over himself. >> i know. >> jimmy: and i didn't want -- i couldn't laugh because -- >> yeah, could you have though. >> jimmy: i couldn't because i just wondered if hurt his back or something. >> did you guys fire him? >> jimmy: he owns my house. [ laughter ] he owns my house. it's unbelievable. it's so sad. >> i thought it would be better if you said you fired him. >> jimmy: no, no, no. he ended up getting it right at the second take. >> nice. >> jimmy: i want to play this thing we call "favorites." >> okay. >> jimmy: and ask you your favorite things. favorite song you performed on "glee." >> "don't rain on my parade." is this fast, can we make it fast? because that would be really fun. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: okay, let's make it really fun. favorite song you like to perform on "glee."
>> "don't rain on my parade." >> jimmy: favorite singer. well, you can't answer "don't rain on my parade" every time. favorite singer? favorite singer? >> alanis morrisette. >> jimmy: favorite broadway show. >> "spring awakening." >> jimmy: favorite movie. >> "almost famous." i once hit a man in dearborn, michigan. i don't know if he's alive or dead, but i think about it every day. >> jimmy: hey, that was neat. [ laughter ] [ scattered applause ] you're awesome. favorite place in new york. >> central park. >> jimmy: favorite music decade. >> ah, '70s, early '70s, not like disco, like rock. >> jimmy: like "am gold" type of stuff. >> like basically all the music in "almost famous." it's my favorite movie. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: oh, my god. >> i'm like a jimmy fallon semi-stalker right now. >> jimmy: oh, my god, no way. oh, my god. now i'm shaking. all right, we have a clip. i want to show everyone a clip of your character and how funny and cute you are in "glee." here's lea michele. >> i need to enlist the services of the av club. >> jimmy: what did you have in mind? >> my shame in appearing so low on the g-list has made me reevaluate my image at this school and beyond. i've now realized that in today's culture of bad boy
athletes and celebrity sex tapes, a good reputation is no good at all. artie, you know how our glee club assignment was to find a song with a bad reputation and rehabilitate it. well, mine is going to afford me the worst reputation in this school. rachel berry is going to get a little down and dirty. >> i'm going to stop you. you had me at sex tape. how can i help? >> hold on to your hat, because rachel berry is going to become musically promiscuous. >> jimmy: look at you. >> you never know. >> jimmy: i know, she's all excited. lea michele.
