Almost 25 years after Alanis Morissette made her international debut in June 1995 with the smash hit album, Jagged Little Pill, the Canadian-American singer-songwriter continues to thrive with a celebratory tour planned for 2020 and a new theatrical production on Broadway inspired by the iconic ’90s album.
On Wednesday, Morissette stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in NYC, where she talked about the legacy of her 1995 album and ventured underground in disguise to busk on a subway platform alongside the late-night host.
Wednesday’s episode, which also featured 2020 U.S. Presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren, saw Morissette engage in some fun late-night banter with Jimmy Fallon before performing her latest single, “Reasons I Drink”. Watch the interview and performance segment from the show below.

Wednesday’s episode also featured a skit in which the two entertainers went underground to NYC’s 50th St. subway station, where they (in disguise) treated the city’s commuters to a busking rendition of “Little Drummer Boy”. A small crowd began to gather around the odd-looking band before they removed their costumes to reveal their true identities to a round of approving applause. Morissette then led the crowded station through a sing-a-long performance of “You Oughta Know”.
