Bridget Everett Sings Rihanna's 'Only Girl' to Idris Elba on 'Tonight Show': Watch


Stand-up comedian / actress Bridget Everett stopped by The Tonight Show on Thursday (Nov. 8) for a hilarious, impromptu performance of Rihanna's "Only Girl." While catching up with host Jimmy Fallon, the multi-talented star shared a few funny anecdotes before Fallon asked if she could sing to the audience. The cabaret veteran and co-star of HBO's ensemble comedy Camping picked the RiRi song as a go-to.

"Any reason for you to sing that one?" Fallon inquired. "You know Idris Elba? We have not met yet, but we will," the comedian replied.

The actress described her platonic love for the actor, who was recently nominated by the Sexiest Person Alive by People. "I want to dedicate this to him because he is so lonely right now," she said, later rationalizing every thought with a funny mountain analogy. "When you're at the top of the mountain, no one can get to you."

Showing off her powerful vocals, the actress joked before starting, "Idris … I wrote this song for you."

With infectious energy, Everett took over the stage as she kneeled and belted out of the tune in front of a collage of Elba's pictures.

Watch the hilarious performance below.
