Grande was expected on the show to perform her new single "No Tears Left to Cry" but it was something of a surprise when she performed the song alongside Fallon and The Roots who were using Nintendo Labo instruments and nothing else. The band uses three Labo guitars, five Labo pianos and several other Labo kits including the robot.

With some light ingenuity (and a lot of patience), you can fashion controllers resembling guitars, drums and pianos, and even play them once paired with the Switch. This time Jimmy says that he wanted to do something with the Nintendo Labo and he did this. We used the Variety Kit and we made a keyboard.

'We made guitars by putting rubber bands over the Switch tablet so that it actually feels like you're strumming as your fingers touch the screen. For the two Nintendo Labo kits now available, you'll have to shell out just under £120.

"So this thing Labo is like cardboard-corrugated, I guess?" Instruments included a Robot Kit (used by Questlove), a Toy-Con piano organ (played by Kamal Gray) and a Piano Studio (rocked by Fallon).

It was totally weird and such a gamble. Fallon said that they got the song right on the second take, which is pretty impressive considering these are real musicians playing cardboard with something roughly the size of an iPad Mini attached to it.
