‘She Killed It’: Internet Calls Evan Rachel Wood ‘Master Mimicrist’ For Nailing Madonna Impression in Jimmy Fallon Show

Evan Rachel Wood has been making some splashes in news headlines for a defamation case involving domestic abuse by ex-boyfriend Marilyn Manson, who ironically happens to be a close friend of Johnny Depp as well. But on a positive note, she recently left a mark on the audience’s heart when she made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. The Westview star left everyone speechless with her flawless rendition of classics from Madonna and Alanis Morissette.

Evan Rachel Wood and her talent for musical impressions

Evan Rachel Wood showed off that there is more to her than just acting, as she showcased how good her vocal skills are. The actress performed Madonna’s 1984 smash ‘Material Girl’, perfectly capturing her vocals and mannerisms. But that’s not all that she had in her bag. She later sang the empowerment anthem ‘You Oughta Know’, showing how she had a grip on Morissette’s emotive range. She capped off her performance with an exceptional impression of ‘Piece of My Heart’ by Janis Joplin.

All set to play Madonna

The actress is set to portray Madonna in the upcoming Weird: The Al Yankovic Story. So it is quite poetic how the on-screen Madonna can mimic the original one. But she didn’t get the chance to show off her skills in the movie. The entire crew was unbeknownst to her skills, until the wrap party for the film. It was at that party that the entire crew, including director Eric Appel, learned of this latent skill.

She shared her memories of the party, saying, “We had a karaoke wrap party and I sang Madonna and the director goes, ‘Why didn’t I make you sing in this movie?'”

She lost this chance. But who knows, she might appear in the long-gestating Joplin biopic when it finally sees the light of day. And with the string of stars set to portray the late vocalist for decades falling through, Wood could easily take the stage for the venture if it ever gets off the ground.

The 34-year-old actress also had the chance to perform on stage back in 2007 for the Beatles musical Across the Universe and Frozen II. She also started the band Evan+Zane in 2018. So it’s safe to say that she knows a little about singing.
