It was followed by a segment where the TikTok star taught the host eight viral dance trends from the app. Obviously, she proved why she is one of the biggest names on social media right now.
However, Twitter has not let it slide and have accused Addison and Jimmy of not giving the original choreographers the credit they deserve.

Twitter responds to Addison Rae on Jimmy Fallon
Accompanied by in-house band The Roots, the influencer smoothly performed the biggest trends on TikTok.
Addison has undoubtedly become the face of the platform, therefore Twitter believes that the segment has given her the credit for the dance origins. They are questioning why Jimmy did not simply invite the original black choreographers onto the show instead.
Neither Addison or Jimmy have responded to the controversy.
Who are the creators of TikTok dances?
- Do It Again by Noah Schnapp: The 16-year-old Stranger Things actor created the dance to Pia Mia’s 2015 track, Do It Again, in April 2020.
2. Savage by Keara Wilson: The 20-year-old created this iconic routine to Megan Thee Stallion’s song over a year ago. She still creates dances, but none have caught on as much as this one.
3. Corvette Corvette by Yvnggprince: The 18-year-old has made his TikTok private, which is probably why he has only got one million followers. He would definitely have more if not.
He is currently more active on YouTube.
4. Savage Love by Jason Derulo – the singer was actually the mastermind behind the dance for his own summer track.
5. Up by Mya Nicole – Many users have danced to Cardi B’s newest song, but this routine has caught on the most.
6. Blinding Lights by macdaddyz – This dance was made by a couple of friends who just got bored.
