    Become a Beleiber
    For all those who thought Justin Bieber was still young and reckless, you may want to alter your opinion. Following his dramatic flow of tears at the VMA last Sunday, Jimmy Fallon hosts the Canadian singer and the interview portrays the youngster in a completely different light — so much so that you may even become a Beleiber! From his return to the top of the charts to not being booed off stage, he talks about it all. The bonus is a rematch of a drum-off with Questlove. Watch it on youtube.com/user/latenight
    President’s tune
    If you thought Tom Cruise’s rendition of I Can’t Feel My Face, by The Weeknd, on The Jimmy Fallon Show was great, then you’re in for a surprise. YouTube channel BaracksDubs has created a lipdub for President Obama to this current favourite tune. From speeches, interviews, debates and casual conversation, it is a hilarious video and we assure you that you’ll be hooked to the channel. Check out the Shake It Off and Happy dubsmash too while there.
