Turns out, with the Golden Globes canceled, the Polo Lounge was the place to be on Sunday night, as long as you’re a fan of off-key singing and empty bars. Newlywed and former Saturday Night Live star Jimmy Fallon was joined by country music mega-star Tim McGraw in an impromptu, late-night, sing-a-long at the Beverly Hills Hotel bar.
They took over the mostly empty lounge around 1 a.m., and, with a female friend pounding away on the piano, the pair sang their way through such standards as, “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” and Willie Nelson’s “Always On My Mind.” The only audience was a booth of four women, but McGraw and Fallon, standing on opposite sides of the piano, belted out lyrics and laughter flooded into the hotel lobby. When asked about the noise by a curious hotel patron, the desk clerk apologized and said, “Jimmy Fallon and Tim McGraw singing together … Only at the Beverly Hills Hotel.”
