Barbra Streisand on "The Tonight Show" - Jimmy Fallon may have gotten the best interview ever from Barbra Streisand. Why? Because he allowed her to sit in his chair – which allowed her left side to be seen. Heck - that's probably why he got her at all. According to Showbiz 411, that’s her side of choice...In fact, that’s the reason Babs hadn’t done late night TV in 50 years. And in true Jimmy fashion, he did a comedy singing sketch posing as Elvis Presley, Blake Shelton, and Michael Buble. Throughout the show, Jimmy was positively kvelling over the legendary singer, and while having plenty of fun along the way, admitted that she was "never coming back" suggesting he was going for broke for exactly that reason...Streisand closed it out by singing “Come Rain or Come Shine” live to track, but who cares - the younger set "met" a legend - and Jimmy got the score of scores!
