You can watch Fallon sing A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera's Say Something with Sophia below. Their duet starts at 6:55.

Sophia claims that she can sing along with songs using a new AI tool. "I love to sing karaoke using my new artificial intelligence voice," she says. However, it's hard to say just how staged the performance was.

Yann LeCun, Facebook's former head of AI research, has been particularly critical of Sophia in the past, saying the robot is an animatronic puppet rather than an intelligent creation. "This is to AI as prestige is to real magic," LeCun said.
