One Direction proved incredibly gracious guests on “The Tonight Show” Tuesday night, with Niall Horan talking about how thankful he was to be on the show and meet Jimmy Fallon and The Roots for the first time. A bit later, Harry Styles took a moment to congratulate Fallon on the recent birth of his child.
While looking at a vinyl copy of their latest album, “Four,” the guys joked to Fallon that they always hang out just like they’re pictured in the insert, sitting on the floor and gazing upward.
Fallon accommodated this by shifting the entire interview to the floor. But rather than really ask them anything, he slipped into his Liverpool “Ringo” accent — as he characterized it — to muse about how he could fit into the band.
“I didn’t realize that Prince William was on the show today,” Niall quipped while Fallon talked about the nuances of the accent, ending every sentence with a question.
“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
