The details of what will go down on the show are a secret, but Sheepdogs frontman Ewan Currie spilled a bit of info about the segment when we caught up with him at Bonnaroo. "We’re gonna have to be improvising or creating in a limited amount of time a new song or something," says Currie. "Actually, I think that’s right up our alley. We’re pretty good at improvising and I definitely think we can come up with something exciting and fun and hopefully win the crowd over."

You can tune in to see what happens tonight on Late Night at 12:35 a.m. ET and 11:35 p.m. CT on NBC. After watching the segment, be sure to vote for your favorite!

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
