Oscar Isaac Performs Amazing Folk Version of Katy Perry’s ‘Roar’

We love a good cover song. What we love even more, however, is when the person covering the song puts his own spin on it.

Enter Oscar Isaac, star of Inside Llewyn Davis, who was tasked to perform a song in front of audience members during his appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. The host asked Isaac if he had acquired any new skills after playing a folk singer in the movie, and handed him a guitar to show off his talent. Isaac obliged and described a folk song as one that is never new and never gets old before launching into a folk version of Katy Perry’s very pop song, ‘Roar.’

We have to say, it’s kind of the best thing ever. Our only gripe with the video is Fallon doesn’t let Isaac finish the song. We might just have to get a petition going to get a full version up on iTunes. Who wants to sign it first?
