Speed Singing with Elle Fanning


-You actually — You made a
music video in the movie. It’s not out yet, but you were
telling me about this process of making the music video for —
This is an original song. -Yes. It’s one of the — It’s
over the credits of the film. It’s called “Wildflowers.” And it’s written by
Jack Antonoff, and Carly Rae Jepsen wrote it. -Oh, my God. -And I had to do
a music video for it, but I’ve never done
a music video that was of, you know,
one of my songs. -Sure.
-So I wasn’t used to it. And they apparently —
which I didn’t know — all the pop artists and,
I guess, every musician? I don’t know. They speed it up,
because if they want to shoot in slow motion,
they have to speed up the lyrics that you mouth to. And you have to mouth the lyrics
super, super, super fast, like “Alvin and the Chipmunks”
style. -So when you
play it back regular, it’s in high definition
and it looks beautiful. -So it’s like it looks normal when they play it back
in slo-mo. So, I have a clip of me doing
this from the music video. -Let’s take a look. Here’s Elle Fanning.
♪♪ Not bad. But the final version of
the music video isn’t out yet. But I thought —
-And it won’t sound like that. -No. But I thought that maybe
we could create this effect on our show
with different songs. We want to try it out in a new
game called “Speed Singing.” Are you down for this?
-Yeah. -All right, here.
[ Cheers and applause ] Now, here’s how it works. Elle and I going to
take turns lip-syncing to songs that have been sped up. Then we’re going to play
the video back with the song at a normal speed
and see how we did. Elle, you’ve done
this before in film, so maybe you should go first. -Okay. -All right,
you take the first card. -All right. “Call Me Maybe,”
Carly Rae Jepsen! -One of the best pop songs ever.
I love that one. Okay. -Okay.
-Now, all right. Let’s dim the lights to make
this look like a music video. All right.
-Ooh! -Are you ready?
-Yeah. -All right, so,
I love “Call Me Maybe.” “So, hey, I just me you…”
Okay, here we go. [ Clears throat ]
And if I can help out, I will. -Okay.
-3, 2, 1, action! -♪ Hey, I just met you ♪ ♪ And this crazy ♪ ♪ But here’s my number ♪ ♪ So call me maybe ♪ -Oh, that’s not bad.
Let’s see. Wow.
Let’s see how it plays back. I just figured
I’d throw that out there. That was quick. Let’s see how it played back
at normal speed. Can we see that? -♪ Hey, I just met you ♪ ♪ And this crazy ♪ ♪ But here’s my number ♪ ♪ So call me maybe ♪ [ Cheers and applause ] -That didn’t work.
-All right. I want to try one. Here we go. I got “Sucker”
by the Jonas Brothers. -Whoo!
[ Cheers and applause ] -That’s a good song.
-That’s a good song. -Now, where do we start
before I start? Because this…
[ Vocalizing ] “You’re the medicine
and the pain”? Oh… ♪ You’re the medicine
and the pain ♪ ♪ The tattoo in my brain ♪ “The tattoo inside my brain.”
-Yeah. -Okay. “Baby –” Okay, “Baby, I know
it’s obvious. I’m sucker for you.”
Okay. I’m doing it on that camera? All right,
can we dim the lights? “You’re the medicine
and the pain.” Okay.
All right, I’m ready. 3, 2, 1, action! -♪ You’re the medicine
and the pain ♪ ♪ The tattoo inside my brain ♪ ♪ And, baby,
you know it’s obvious ♪ ♪ I’m a sucker for you ♪ -Yeah! That was good!
[ Cheers and applause ] -Let’s play it back. I don’t know if I want to see
this back, but let’s… -That was good. -Let’s play it back
at normal speed and see how I did there. -♪ You’re the medicine
and the pain ♪ ♪ The tattoo inside my brain ♪ ♪ And, baby,
you know it’s obvious ♪ ♪ I’m a sucker for you ♪ [ Cheers and applause ]
♪♪ -I started with the “baby.”
-That was really good. -“Baby, you know it’s obvious.”
That was my baby. I really held
the baby very high. That’s not normally how you
would normally hold the baby. But this last one, let’s try at
the same song at the same time. -Okay.
-Ready? -Let’s do it. What is it?
“7 Rings”! -Ariana Grande! All right.
-Okay. -Should we stand?
Let’s stand for this one. -Okay.
-All right, here we go. -And I could do my Marilyn
mouth, like… -I’m just going to do
my belly fat. Okay, here we go. Which one? “You want it? I got it.
I want it. I got it. You like my hair?
Gee, thanks, I just bought it.” -Okay, all right.
-All right. All right, wait.
Oh, yeah, I know. Are you ready?
-Ready. -Dim the lights. Here we go.
[ Breathes deeply ] 3, 2, 1, action! -♪ I want it, I got it ♪ ♪ I want it, I got it ♪ ♪ You like my hair? ♪ ♪ Gee, thanks, just bought it ♪ [ Cheers and applause ] -Let’s see how we did there.
-Whoo! -♪ I want it, I got it ♪ ♪ I want it, I got it ♪ ♪ You like my hair? ♪ ♪ Gee, thanks, just bought it ♪ -Oh!
-Oh! -Crushed it! Yo, crushed it! -I just believe that we are
the best together. -Rocked it! We’re the best together.
Exactly. -Yeah. -Elle’s new movie,
“Teen Spirit,” is in select theaters April 12th
and opens nationwide April 19th. Happy birthday. We love you!

People have stopped me on the street more times than I care to remember to tell me I look exactly like Elle Fanning. I finally gave up and started watching videos of her. Basically the only differences between us is that her hair is a few shades lighter, she's three inches taller, and her eyes are blue-green instead of dark blue. So next time someone says anything, instead of being irritated, I'm just going to say "Thank you".

I'm in love with her since the first maleficent. She's really beautiful, like a princess but in real life ❤️

I miss when I thought this show was something more improvised but everything is soooo ready that it already bores … even Jimmy's fake laugh bothers me … it's sad, he repeats himself over and over again

I have to admit, I already saw this video when it came out, and I never even looked at Jimmy in the 7 Rings part, but now that I saw it kkkkkkkk Elle did much better

sorry but her sister will always remain the much more talented sister. Her roles were way more touching and required way more real actor play than Elle`s… Elle is very average compared to her sister. No hate, just comparing the two.

From the cover tought that you're Alicia Silverstone cause I already screamed before I realize till I read that was ELLE FANNING

Here she reminds me of supermodel Gigi Hadid , and in her movie she reminds me of supermodel Cara . Thank you

Jesus Christ is real so always pray and go to church to pray for your family members and for your future if you want to live a long healthy life and share this please after my graduation I will make my own church and I will don't eat meat trust Jesus Christ he has given so many vegetables fruits Perris and water so enjoy those and share this to all please. Trust me Jesus Christ has showed heaven and angels are real so stop enjoining meat Jesus Christ has given so many vegetables fruits and berries so enjoy those not meat always go to church and pray to Jesus Christ if you want to live a long life
