Instruments included a Robot Kit (used by Questlove), a Toy-Con piano organ (played by Kamal Gray) and a Piano Studio (rocked by Fallon).

With Grande - wearing an electric blue jumpsuit and safety goggles - adding some digital triangle, the quirky rendition of the song was a triumph as the performance added a bit of digital funk to the recorded version.

While we've dabbled in creating different sounds with our own Nintendo Labo kits, Ariana Grande appeared alongside The Roots on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show to show how it can really be done. Nintendo just stood them up. You can watch a video of the Nintendo Labo song below. I mean what is this?

"So this thing Labo is like cardboard - corrugated, I guess?" Why would you even think of this?

Using just cardboard, Ariana's band had guitars, keyboards, drums and for some reason, a fishing rod at their disposal. "We'll help you do it, '" Fallon revealed to IGN. "You can make robots, you can make all sorts of fun stuff", Fallon said.

Leveraging almost every aspect of Toy-Con Garage, the group was able to create custom Toy-Con-like Guitars, as well as reprogram existing ones to emit musical sounds. I didn't know if it was going to sound good, but Ariana is always down to try something fun and different. Not only was each project a great building experience but my daughter spent more time on the Switch playing with his creations than she has since we got the portable console.
