"Ozark" actress Julia Garner showed off some impressive vocal skills as she imitated music legends Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani on "The Tonight Show."

Jimmy Fallon was in for a treat on Monday when he hosted Julia Garner on an episode of "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon." The actress revealed some surprising abilities, to Fallon, and much of the show's fans' astonishment.

During Garner's appearance on the show, the 26-year-old explained that she could perform a convincing impersonation of music icons Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani.

Garner then proceeded to do a live rendition of Spears' legendary high-pitched voice and followed it up with an equally impressive impression of Gwen Stefani.

Garner explained that although the two renditions were somewhat similar, Stefani's was a little grittier and involved more emotional movement. Nonetheless, Fallon was visibly impressed by the actress's performance and exclaimed:

"Your body turned into Gwen Stefani right now. And your face!... That's perfect! You're amazing!"


Fallon then proceeded to share the clip with the show's 25.4 million YouTube subscribers. Fans seemed to share the host's astonishment as the video has been viewed over 500,000 times since its upload.

Garner's lovely impressions weren't the only highlights of Monday's episode. The Emmy Award-winner also shared the story of her first date with her husband, Mark Foster, which was a visit to "The Tonight Show."

The New York native even admitted to blacking out when she went on stage to receive the award.


Garner recalled that Foster had an upcoming trip to New York and asked if she would visit him on "Fallon." The actress agreed to meet, and the rest, as they say, is history.

She (on Monday) then complimented Fallon, saying he was her "good luck charm" because just two years later, Foster and Garner were married — they tied the knot at New York's City Hall on New Year's Day this year.


The actress also revealed some interesting details about the 2019 Emmy Awards, where she won her first Emmy for "Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series" courtesy of her performance in Netflix's "Ozark."

Garner expressed that she remembers the event sparingly as it was "like an out-of-body experience." The New York native even admitted to blacking out when she went on stage to receive the award.


Hopefully, this year's event will remain fresh in Garner's memory — she has been nominated for the same award at the 2020 Emmys for the same role — as she continues to build on her already impressive resume.

Garner's appearance on "The Tonight Show" is undoubtedly one to remember. However, the show hasn't been the only one to witness a Britney Spears impression this year.

"Saturday Night Live" featured Chloe Fineman performing a hilarious Britney-inspired performance in their recently concluded season.
