Who knew that 88-year-old Betty White was such a fan of the R&B? (Which was invented when she was well grown out of petticoats.) Check out what our Russ Weakland saw at tonight’s ‘Tonight Show’ taping with guest Betty White!

The best moment — at least in my mind — was watching Betty White dancing with Jay Leno off-camera during Macy Gray‘s performance! Shocking … she seemed to love the song (I did, too) and boy could that dame boogie!

Meanwhile, when she was filming promos for the show, Jay warmed her heart (to whatever extent he can) by calling the 88-year-old comedian a “fox.” Seriously: the producers said they needed a fox, and Jay actually quipped, “We have a fox right here,” referring the to Ms. White. Moments later, Betty was given a baby fox to hold, and she loved it.

And when you saw her do her “Can’t Make Me Flinch” bit with Jay: It’s for real, folks. She’s even more stone-faced than you could believe. Hilarious.

Watch tonight on NBC (check those local listings or tomorrow on Hulu) to see just how awesome everyone’s favorite octogenarian really is.
