– I want to steal your wardrobe. You’re the most fun person
I maybe have ever met. I love you. – Thank you, there looks
like there’s police in here. – [Kelly] Yes, yes. (audience laughing) – [Sho Madjozi] You can’t steal. – This is actually intervention. No, I’m just kidding, I’m kidding. – Oh no. – [Kelly] I’m just kidding. No but Sho Madjozi, that’s
not your real name right? – No, no – What’s your real name? – Maya. – Maya? So, where did you get the name Maya? – Well, I’m from South
Africa but when I was born my parents were reading
Doctor Maya Angelou and I think they wanted a
daughter who was literate, so… (Kelly laughs) – So they said “Lets name
her after someone who writes beautifully” and yeah, that’s why. – Oh my gosh that’s amazing. – You are literally Kelly Clarkson though. (everyone laughs) – I know but I’m not Maya Angelou. I’m just saying that’s cool. – But you’re Kelly Clarkson,
are you aware of this? – I’m not, aim higher I swear. But thank you, you flew… I have gone to South Africa many times, that is a long flight. – [Sho] Yeah. – So thank you for flying
clear across the world to be here. We were very, very excited. But tell me about your John Cena song. What inspired it? I love the video. – Thank you. – I love the song. – Thank you so much. I love John Cena. – [Kelly] I love it. (audience cheers) – [Kelly] There you go. – [Sho] So… (audience claps) I do, I do. – Where, so did, are you a wrestling fan? – Oh absolutely.
– Is that were this came from? – [Kelly] Okay, okay. – Growing up I was already… I grew up in a very rural
area, Limpopo in South Africa. And there was one television in my village while we were growing up. And we got to watch two TV shows. One was a local drama called “Generations” and the other one was wrestling. – That’s amazing. – Yes, so if I didn’t go
by Sho Madjozi I would’ve gone by John Cena probably. As I learned back then
that’s already someone’s name so I didn’t. But I love him. – You didn’t steal it? I love it I love it. – And I made the song
cause it’s really about, you know cause John Cena
always used to say, “You can’t see me”? So when we used to play
wrestling with my cousins I used to pretend to be John Cena. – Oh my gosh I love you. (Sho laughs) – I just pictured you like eight years old just like giving it to em. I love that. – I just be like, “You
can’t see me” ya know. And so yeah, so then
recently I had this boy that I really like and then he just didn’t notice me ever so I was
like, “Man, this guy can’t see me maybe– – I don’t like him already. – Thank you, I was like,
“He can’t see me, maybe I’m John Cena”. (everyone laughs) – [Kelly] Oh my God. That’s amazing. So did you ever actually get to meet him? After you did this? – Who? – John Cena? Oh no, of course not, not yet. I hope I meet him one day. – [Kelly] Oh yeah, well that’s a bummer. I mean I think he posted, didn’t he post about it as well when he found out? – I don’t know if he posts for himself but his page, he put the
picture of me on there. And he doesn’t say anything,
he doesn’t caption, he doesn’t tag me, nothing. – He’s… Because you can’t see him. (everyone laughs) (audience claps) – But I love him. I don’t know when I don’t
know what will happen cause if I see him I’m gonna freak out. – [Kelly] You’re gonna die? Okay. – I love him a lot yeah. – All right well it’s our
first season he’s not here. We have a small budget but– – He’s probably watching, – But wait, say he’s
watching and he’s gonna love this moment and I want
you to perform the song, will you? – Oh yay. – Okay, let’s perform. (applause) – You come on over here. (upbeat music) – Hey. Sho. (sings in foreign language) ♪ I don’t know why you
treat me like a criminal ♪ ♪ Hey, we were just together though ♪ ♪ On the same line, why you
pressin’ enter though? ♪ ♪ Some wanna act rough like John Cena ♪ ♪ Some wanna get buff like John Cena ♪ ♪ We used to be cool, when
I used to come through ♪ ♪ Now you wanna act tough like John Cena ♪ ♪ Chi chi chi chi ♪ ♪ Chi chi chi ♪ ♪ Chi chi chi chi ♪ ♪ Chi chi chi ♪ ♪ Some wanna act rough like John Cena ♪ ♪ Some wanna get– ♪ (sho screams) (audience cheers) – [Sho] What do you mean? You said he’s not here. You said he’s not here. What is happening? (kelly laughs) – [Sho] You said he’s not here. (audience cheers) (sho screams) – John Cena, nice– – Holy cow, holy cow – [John] Nice to meet you. – [Kelly] Oh my gosh. – What. – We’ll be right back. (upbeat music) – So, what do you wanna say to Sho? She loves you. – [Sho] Oh my. – First of all thank
you for the kind words while I was hiding back there. I was hiding the whole time. I do post myself and I
don’t caption anything because I kind of don’t want the viewer of the account to– I want them to take away what they can and people are finding
inspiration in your song. And here’s what you don’t know. She explained it very
candidly but her song is about, essentially
about heartbreak right? – Yeah – But it’s really cool because
it’s a high energy song and you can take something
negative in your life and express it creatively
and you’ve literally reached an audience around the world. – [Sho] Oh my gosh – I think that is super, super empowering – And super, super influencing. – [Kelly] John Cena
you are so well spoken. – But no that’s the truth, here we are in Los Angeles she’s from South Africa, geographically around the world. And you managed to
create a dance challenge in my name and we saw that I can’t dance. We just saw that, just saw that. (everyone laughs) – But wait, you used to rap. – You did the impossible. – [Sho] You were a rapper yeah. – Yeah you used to rap, would you ever do a song with Sho? I’m just saying. – I still got some bars. (everyone cheers) – I’m 42, I don’t I don’t. At all. – [Kelly] That’s what
would make it awesome. – But for you, for you, yes. – You’re the best, I can’t believe this. – Is this the real one? – That is the real, it’s
not a fake, it’s not a fake. – So that’s weird right? It’s John Cena, is that
the real John Cena? – Cause she’s overwhelmed,
especially, I can’t imagine being a child. I can imagine actually. You’re a child and you
grow up loving these people and you idolize them and
they change you, ya know they’ve made such an impact on you and it’s awesome to get
to meet them in real life later in life. It’s the coolest thing. – Are you kidding me? It’s hearing that song. So I’ve been in WWE a long
time, almost 20 years, and you forget the impact
that you have on people and hearing that song– like, you’re cool. I’m not. – [Sho] Noooo. – [Kelly] You are both cool. – So hearing something like that kind of makes me half cool again,
which is the best thing ever. Like really, I’m so very
excited to know that essentially what I did
had an impact on people around the world, that’s also really cool. – You’re so amazing. – Thank you. – [Kelly] What do you want to say to John? Now he’s right in front of you. – Yeah, here we are. It’s just us, nobody’s
watching let’s just– – Nobody can see you first of all. – [John] Nobody can,
who are you sitting next to on the couch? – The whole audience is
like, “She’s really excited about that empty space”. (everyone laughs) – Yeah, it’s a WWE thing, you
know what I’m talking about. – I think you’re the coolest ever. – [John] Wow. – I think you’re the coolest ever– – [John] Thank you. – Like, I would have
gone by John Cena if it wasn’t, if you weren’t already John Cena. – Well here’s the thing,
it’s not really my name. My dad’s name is John Cena. So I’m saying if you want
to borrow it, it’s got legs. – What do you mean it’s
not your real name? – Well it is my real name
but it’s not my name. My dad’s name is also John Cena so– – Oh I thought maybe you were saying it was your middle name. – At family functions we
have to fight to the death just to see who gets the
name for the evening. – That’s amazing. – No but yeah go ahead
use it, no you stick with Sho Madjozi. Everyone around the
world knows Sho Madjozi. – [Kelly] It’s infectious,

Oh my God, that’s not
how you eat a hot dog. It’s a sandwich. So, can you do this
to a sandwich? So- Just because I can’t
deep throat it doesn’t mean
it’s not a sandwich. That seems like a weird
criteria, yeah. Is a hot dog a sandwich? No.
Absolutely. No. Yes.
The definition of a sandwich is either
“A, two or more slices of bread, or a split roll
having filling in between.” Okay. Okay?
Okay. Or “B, one slice of bread
covered with food, like an open-faced sandwich.” They came with definitions
as well. Where did you get
your definition from? Merriam-Webster. Merriam-Webster.
I don’t know if you- Interesting. Well-
I don’t know if you’ve heard. Okay so, here’s the Oxford
definition of sandwich, “An item of food consisting
of two pieces of bread with meat, cheese,
or other fillings between them.” While a hot dog definition
is “A frankfurter, especially one served hot
in a, singular, long, soft roll. Also, north American, informal,
a person who shows off, especially a skier or surfer
who performs stunts or tricks.” Wait, what? Like, “That guy’s being
a hot dog.” That’s a hot dog.
Yeah, it’s a hot dog. What?
One more time Sarah. How can we trust
that definition? That’s a hot dog. I trust that definition
more than yours. That’s number two. How can you trust
that definition? A hot dog is what you call
a snowboarder or a … “A person who shows off.” A person who- “Especially a skier or surfer
who performs stunts or tricks.” So, you’re saying a hot dog
is not a sandwich, but it is … Shaun White. Shaun White. Are these pieces connected?
These two pieces? Oh, just barely. Yeah.
Oh God, just barely. But they are.
Mm-hmm (affirmative). Yeah, but according
to my definition- A sandwich- And not the Oxford
English Dictionary, sorry, that is a sandwich. That is not a sandwich. Okay, what if you got a nice
little turkey melt on ciabatta? Just saying. They were slicing
through, “What’s up, boss? Okay,” they didn’t
slice all the way. Still stuffed
the same fillings in there, but it was connected,
oh God, just barely. I would say,
“I ordered a tuna melt, not a hot dog with tuna in it,
you freak.” If a food chooses to identify
as a sandwich, it can be a sandwich. Oh my God. A food- A pizza is an open-faced
sandwich. If a food chooses-
No, it’s not! Pizza is an open-faced sandwich. Okay, take a grilled
cheese sandwich, take the first part off of it,
and add tomato sauce, that’s a pizza
or an open-faced sandwich. I can play your game, which is that the food
gets to choose, right? Yeah. So okay, Mr. Hot Dog, why don’t you tell me,
just me what you want to be? I don’t know about that because
I’m going to talk to mine. Okay, so mine says … Hello? I’m sorry, what? Mine says … what’s that? Mine’s yelling so it’s hard
for me to hear what yours is saying, “I’m a fucking sandwich,
boy,” it’s saying. It’s saying,
“I’m a sandwich boy”? Mm-hmm, but it’s
got a funny little accent. Well, where are the lips
on yours? Mine? What are you
talking about, where are the lips
on this guy, here? Where are the lips on yours? Yeah. Mine doesn’t have lips
because it doesn’t have agency. Have you ever seen a clam talk?
Same kind of thing. You mean an animated clam? And a clam. Adventures of clams?
Super extra reality? What are you talking about? Above reality, below reality,
clam forward? Clam-focused? You said everyone- Adventures under the sea? You don’t know
Big Ronnie the clam and his adventures
with his fricking pals? Oh my God, that’s not
how you eat a hot dog. It’s a sandwich, so you can eat
it any way you want. A sandwich. Nobody eats it that way.
Are you kidding me? You eat it from one of the ends! Normal way to eat a hot dog. Do it super slow.
Okay? But there are other ways
to eat a hot dog. Sometimes some people
don’t like carbs, right? Yeah. So, can you do this
to a sandwich? Yeah, I think we get the point. I don’t get the point yet. There. Can you? Can you eat
a sandwich like that? Yeah, I guess you probably
could eat a turkey wrap like that,
if you wanted to. Yeah.
I don’t know why you would. A wrap is not a sandwich. Well, you could roll up
the insides of the sandwich, and do exactly
what you just did. You could not eat turkey
like this. I don’t understand why you want- I’m proving to you
it’s not a sandwich. So- Just because I can’t
deep throat it doesn’t mean it’s not
a sandwich. That seems like a weird
criteria, yeah. Do they have sandwich
eating contests? They do not. They have
hot dog eating contests because no one
would think to eat- They have sandwich
eating contests. Mm-hmm. Okay, where?
All over the place. Does Nathan’s have it?
Tucson. They have …
And what do they eat? Tucson. What kind of sandwiches? Big Crusty. Big Crusties?
What’s in a Big Crusty? Crusty on top,
smooth in the middle. What?
You’re describing textures, not- Crusty on top. I don’t think you’re
describing a … vagina. Sounds like Creme Brulee. I’m sorry, you said a vagina? Yeah, crusty on top,
smooth in the middle. What? Crusty on top? Smooth in the middle? I mean … that’s been
my experience with vaginas. What does crusty on top mean?
Go on, take it away. So, is everything crusty on top,
smooth in the middle? You just call that a vagina?
So, that’s a vagina, if it’s crusty on top,
smooth in the middle? So, if you have an ice cream
that’s topped with crunchy stuff, you’re like,
“Ooh, I’m eating a vagina cone”? Or that magic cone? Yeah. I mean, why are you
shaming my grandma’s vagina? Why do you know what your
grandmother’s vagina looks like? For her medicine, that’s how you
administer the medicine. You’re giving her Monistat? Yeah. Oh my God. Could probably open it up. There’s the vagina,
and then this is my penis, and I put the medicine
on my penis … No.
And then she … that’s the only way
she says it makes her healthy. I don’t know who is at fault
in this scenario. I don’t even know if I should be
upset for you, or angry, but … Probably proud of him … Okay. Is she still alive?
Do you still do this? Yeah, every Sunday. Every Sunday? Do you guys
not have grandparents? I just don’t think you can start
calling a hot dog a sandwich. A quesadilla,
you said earlier is a sandwich. But you could consider anything
as a sandwich. You guys have such narrow- A sandwich is a sandwich.
Very narrow- A hamburger’s not a sandwich. Turkey sandwich, bacon, lettuce
and tomato, ham sandwich. Layers, baby,
two pieces of bread, and then a bunch of stuff
in between. Stuff in between, okay so, we make a grandma sandwich
every Sunday. No. Mm-hmm, when she’s
feeling bad, for sure. I mean, I-
I kind of go behind, and I’m looking Jordan in the
eyes for this kind of thing. Can one of you be
the grandma for- No.
No. You’re going to have
to use these … Use the hot dog. So basically, I’m behind. And then I apply the medicine
to my penis, and then we just
kind of come in, and … It’s more of a me
and Jordan kind of experience. There’s no world
where this is a sandwich. This doesn’t seem like
a sandwich to you? No. No.
We’re sandwiching this- Okay, you tell that
to the sick lady who’s getting her life saved by
a fricking sandwich of ours. Oh my God. Tell that to my grandma
right now. Tell it to her. That’s not your grandma. That she doesn’t deserve
to live because she- This is more your grandmother
than it is a sandwich. That’s fair. That is so rude. I feel bad for you.
I mean, if you wanted to be, you guys could be sandwiches
too. You could.
I will never be a sandwich. I don’t, why would I- Yeah, never with that attitude. On the record now, I will never
be a sandwich to you, okay? Can we just, on the record,
okay? Never going to happen. Listen, if you were sick,
and you needed- Just feel empowered enough
to say that, “I am a sandwich,”
all right? On the count of three,
we’ll all say, “I am a sandwich.” The fact that you think-
One. Two. Three.
No. I am a sandwich. Could you do this to a …
sorry. Some people
don’t like carbs, right? Some people don’t like carbs, they can’t eat carbs,
like myself. But can you eat a sandwich?
Can you … Can you eat a …
-I got to say, congrats
on this film, “Uncut Gems.” -Thank you, pal.
-It’s unbelievable. It’s getting insane reviews. “Sandler’s supernova presence
radiates.” — “Variety.” -Yes.
-Some say, “It’s a hell of a part.
And Sandler aces it.” “A career high.”
I mean, there’s — It’s getting Oscar buzz. And —
-Yeah. -How’s that feel? I want to ask
you, like, are you, like, did you ever think you would
get Oscar buzz? -No.
[ Laughter ] No, no, no.
I think when I was young, I thought “Billy Madison”
or something had a shot. [ Laughter ]
And then I — But they — They took that away from me.
So I stopped dreaming. Yeah.
-Yeah. Who — The directors are
the Safdie brothers? -Safdie brothers.
Two great guys. Josh and Benny. Man, are they good.
-God, this — I saw their movie “Good Time.”
-Yeah, yes. -Robert Pattinson.
And I just saw that movie. And I go, “Ooh.”
And it put a knot in my stomach. -Oh, me too. Me too.
-So I was excited that you were working
with these guys. -Yeah.
-And doing a dramatic role. So I was sitting here.
This is a true story. I was talking to Lorne.
-Yeah. -Lorne Michaels who —
-Yes. -And he says, “I’m going to
go see Adam’s movies.” -Right, right.
-Some big film — New York Film Festival thing. You’re a part of this
film festival. So I go, “Great. I’ll go.”
I go, “I have a double taping. It’ll be great.”
He goes, “All right, I’ll see you there.”
I go, “no problem.” He goes, “You going?”
I go, “Yeah, I can’t wait.” I go, “You waiting for me?” He goes,
“No, I’ll meet you there.” “Okay, great.” So he goes.
Lorne goes ahead of me. I do — I double tape
the show that night. I get in the car.
I go down to Lincoln Center. Go down this big theater,
I go down. Someone brings me down.
Open the doors. Giant theater full of people.
And I look for Lorne. They — I see Lorne’s
in the middle of the row with Chris Rock and Ben Stiller.
-Yeah, yeah, yeah. [ Light laughter ]
-No room for me. No seat saved at all.
[ Laughter ] Nothing. I go,
“What — guy, I mean, didn’t we have a thing?
I mean, what’s going on?” So I go, “Hey, what’s up.”
And then I go, “All right,
I guess I’ll just sit.” So I sat at the end of the row
by myself. -Yes, yeah.
[ Laughter ] -And so I was there
next to woman. -Yeah.
-And I said, “Hi, nice to see you.
I’m very excited about this. I’m a big — So I’m,
like, getting ready for the — -Small talking.
-So then the movie’s about to start.
The lights go down a little bit. And this woman stands up.
And she leaves. There’s an empty seat. And who
sits in the seat next to me? Adam Sandler.
-That’s right, baby. [ Cheers and applause ]
I saw you. I saw you. -The Sand man.
The Sand man came in! -I saw that his little heart
broken eyes, “Nobody loves me.”
[ Laughter ] And daddy showed up.
And then — Can I tell them
what you did to me? -Yeah, sure. -He pulled the popcorn trick
on me. [ Laughter ] I couldn’t believe it.
Jimmy, when you — -No, no, no, no.
-And it was the best popcorn I’ve ever eaten in my life.
-But it — no. How was I as a seat mate? As a seat mate,
how was I though? -You were the best guy
to watch this movie with. By the way, you know Jimmy’s
enthusiasm is incredible. And he —
If you sit next to Jimmy, and you have a movie coming out, he is the proper man to make you
think that you did a great job. [ Laughter ]
Because you were so — This movie is very, like, it
gets you a little upset. And you’re nervous
throughout the thing. Jimmy was so nervous
and so excited. And every line I said,
I’m watching the movie. You know,
I don’t love watching myself. But Jimmy would grab me
and be like, “Oh, my God, I loved that.”
And I’d be like, “Yeah, yeah. That’s right.
It was good, wasn’t it?” [ Laughter ]
Yeah, you made me feel top there,
buddy. -I honestly —
that was one of these movies I couldn’t believe it.
First of all, after, like, I want to say, five minutes into
it, I don’t see you anymore. I see this character
that you’re playing. -That’s great.
-Is it Harvey or Howard? -Howard.
-Howard. -Howard Ratner. Yes, yes.
-Howard Ratner. -I looked different.
I dress different. -You talk differently.
And everything — and, like — I just feel bad
for this guy, man. -Oh, yeah.
-And he’s kind of a gambler. And he works in
the diamond district. -Yes.
-Which is right here on 47th Street.
-Yes, yes, yes. -Did you get to hang out
and meet those guys? -I got to — sure.
I mean, I did research
for the character. The Safdie brothers
brought me there. And I got to know everybody
on the block. And they all let me
in their lives. And allowed me
to work with them and — you know, I didn’t do any work.
But I watched them work. [ Laughter ] And they taught me
about jewelry. And they taught me about how
they do sales. -But it’s a tight knit
family that — -Yes, nobody get’s in there.
-It’s a little area. No. -It really is a cool block. It’s amazing when you go there. It’s just been the same
for so long. And they just —
It’s family business. And they — They taught me a
lot. And I did — this is —
if I can — they — I couldn’t let the character go. They gave me a loop.
They gave me a loop. So when I shot the movie,
I was so in — excited about getting to know
jewelry and stuff. And they gave me one of —
you know the loop thing? -That magnifies the —
-That magnifies the thing. And so, yeah. I started
looking at everybody’s jewelry to see if it was good or bad.
[ Laughter ] And then — this is the weirdest
thing I discovered. Because of the loop,
I have a penis. I had no idea.
[ Laughter ] I was so excited.
-Congratulations! [ Cheers and applause ]
-Yeah, yeah. -Congratulations.
-It felt cool. -That’s awesome.
Yeah, that’s fantastic. -Thank you.
And, guys, it’s also uncut. [ Laughter ]
But I have to report to you, sadly, it’s not a gem.
[ Laughter ] It was trying, though.
-Oh, my gosh. So I’m watching this thing. And there are some funny scenes
in it. -Yes.
-You have some good things. But it is really riveting.
And seriously, there is a knot in your stomach.
And I’m watching your character. And I’m like,
“Oh, just don’t do it man.” Just like,
“Oh, just go home, dude. Just go home. Just stop.
What are you doing?” And you just push it.
And these directors are great. -Yeah. Oh, yeah.
-The soundtrack is killer. -Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
-And it just gets better and crazier and just awesomer.
And now — and the ending — I don’t want to tell anybody.
But it was so — but anyways — I’m happy.
-Yes. -Last five minutes of the movie, you had to leave to go do
a Q&A. -I know. I went —
I had to leave you. But — -I’m happy you did.
-I know. I know. -‘Cause I loved —
-We had — We went to the party after,
though. -Yeah, what a great party
that was. -They had a party
at Katz’s Delicatessen. -It was great.
-And everybody was, like, so funny.
Usually at a party after a movie is a drink and celebration. This was just people eating
corned beef sandwiches. [ Laughter ]
-Biz Markie was deejaying. -Biz Markie was incredible.
Yeah, yeah, yeah. -It was great.
It was such a fun party. -It was fun.
-And I got to meet these guys from the film that are, like,
real people. -Oh, yes, yes.
-They’re not actors. They’re kind of characters
in real life. -They’re characters, yeah,
yeah. They’re a lot of the people from
the jewelry district are in it. And then there are some guys
after me in the movie who are — the Safdie brothers are really
into the right cast and who has the right look. And there are all these —
a lot of them weren’t actors. And these guys who beat me up
in the — I get beat up throughout
the movie a lot ’cause I owe money and stuff. But these guys who were beating
me up were really good guys. But they didn’t ever do
a movie before. So there was a stunt coordinator
who would say, like, “You know, you don’t
have to really choke at him.” [ Laughter ] You know, it was like —
and then they were all like, “Yes.” Nodding along nice. And, like, “You know, this looks
like you’re choking him.” And they were like — They
literally didn’t hear anything the guy was saying.
[ Laughter ] And they would talk to me like
they love me. Say like, “‘Mr. Deeds’ was
incredible.” I was like, “Oh, thanks, man.”
And then, “Action!” And then just full choke.
[ Laughter ] And I was, like,
trying to tap out. I’m punching the roof.
And they’re like, “Adam’s in character.”
And I was like, “No, I really am getting
choked right now.” [ Laughter ]
-It is unbelievable. And I just — I gotta say,
dude, I just love seeing every single thing you do. I followed your career
through everything. But — and the comedy special
was great you had this year. “SNL” was fantastic.
-Thanks. -You hosting — that was great. -You being on there with me
was sweet. -No, that was great.
-Thank you. -But this thing is like — Dude, you deserve all the praise
for this. -Thanks, buddy. -“Uncut Gems.”
Adam Sandler, everybody.
