A day after singing a duet with Billy Joel, Jimmy Fallon treated viewers to another magical music moment last night.

Kevin Bacon went back in time about 30 years and made like Ren McCormack once again, responding to Fallon’s joke about dancing being “outlawed” on The Tonight Show by cutting Footloose.
