WATCH: Jimmy Fallon’s La La Land inspired Golden Globes opening

Los Angeles - Jimmy Fallon borrowed the traffic jam song-and-dance routine from La La Land to kick off the Golden Globe Awards, with a song-and-dance intro featuring cameos from Globes nominees Raimi Malek and John Travolta, among others.

The pre-recorded intro then morphed into footage of Fallon sitting at a piano serenading stars in the Beverly Hilton Hotel ballroom, including Ryan Reynolds.

It's Fallon's first year hosting the Globes and he has combined his love of music with music from one of the year's top movies.

Perhaps the pre-recorded routine was a good call: Fallon's opening monologue was delayed when he said his teleprompter failed.
