Gwyneth Paltrow's a cappella roots

Gwyneth Paltrow showed off her singing skills on "The Tonight Show" by performing her own rendition of hip hop tracks by Nicki Minaj, Drake and Big Sean. Ahead of her performance she spoke to Jimmy Fallon about how she was in an a cappella group, Triple Trio, in her younger years .

"It was like a really cute barbershop quartet, but nine-tet-however you say that," she explained of where her singing talents all began.

"We would sing 'Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy.' We would sing Billy Joel's a cappella song, 'The Longest Time.' That was my audition song for the group."
