Jimmy Fallon has proven he knows how to lip sync with the best of them, but the “Tonight Show” host also knows how to solve a crisis.

When two Adele fans were given fake tickets to the singer’s Radio City Music Hall show, Fallon saved the day.

And it wasn’t even filmed for another viral video.

Here’s what happened:

Kristen Smith and Mary Kate Romano were given last-minute tickets to the show.

“We walked to the door to get in and the guy scanned the tickets and told us they were fake,” Smith told US Weekly. “We were both so disappointed and sad that we made the trip into NYC and were so close, but wouldn't actually get to see Adele.”

The two waited outside of the venue hoping to score tickets with no luck. So they headed back home.

“There were a line of cars that all had black-tinted windows and I made a comment about how I'm sure those are for someone famous,” Smith said. “All of a sudden, a door opened next to us and out stepped Jimmy Fallon!”

The girls called his name, asked for a picture with him and told him what happened.

“He said something about how that's too bad,” Smith said. “We then turned around and a guy standing in the doorway — we’re not sure if he worked with Jimmy or if he worked for Radio City Music Hall — said, ‘I can make your night even better,’ and he pulled out an envelope and handed me two tickets to get into the show.

“Without Jimmy Fallon leaving at that time, we never would have ended up getting in!”

Smith told the magazine that the whole night was “an emotional roller coaster,” and we bet that wasn’t just because of Adele’s moving songs.

Way to go, Jimmy.
