Hugh Jackman and Jimmy Fallon performed West Side Story together

Hugh Jackman and Jimmy Fallon did a spontaneous West Side Story performance on Thursday’s episode of Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, complete with dancing and snapping.

Fallon was talking about how his dad used to both sing doo-wop on Brooklyn street corners in the ’60s and travel with a gang. “Not gangs now, but it was like West Side Story-type of gangs,” said Fallon. Naturally, he and Jackman burst into “Jet Song” from West Side Story complete with the musical’s famous snapping and iconic dance moves. The mini-performance was the perfect occasion for Hugh Jackman to show off his musical theater talent.
