Philadelphia Mayoral Candidate Jim Kenney Thinks Madonna's ‘Tonight Show' Performance Was ‘Cray”

Jim Kenney is hard at work as he tries to become Philadelphia’s next mayor but that doesn’t mean the Democratic candidate can’t still appreciate some music from one of his favorites in his rare down time.

Kenney apparently stayed up late Thursday night to see superstar Madonna perform alongside Philadelphia’s The Roots on the Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.

The Roots performance featured a grill-wearing Madonna, Fallon and the guys from Philly all playing children’s instruments while wearing Hawaiian shirts as they performed the “Material Girl’s” 1980s classic "Holiday."

Madonna also sat down for an interview with Fallon, did some stand-up (yes, comedy) and performed her new hit "B----, I’m Madonna" with Diplo (another guy with Temple roots who started DJing while attended Temple University) while running and dancing through the backstage area, onto Fallon’s desk and into crowd.

The Madonna takeover late night on NBC10 brought joy to Kenney – a longtime fan.

“He thought last night's performance was fantastic,” said campaign spokeswoman Lauren Hitt.
