Jimmy Fallon Tears Up During Last Show & Performs With Muppets

Sat, February 8, 2014 11:44am EDT by 5 Comments

It was a teary goodbye to ‘Late Night’ for Jimmy on Feb. 7, as the talk show host performed a moving tune with the Muppets to end his final show before heading to ‘The Tonight Show.’ Keep reading to see the emotional goodbye!

Though Jimmy Fallon is getting a promotion — moving from Late Night to The Tonight Show – it’s still been hard for him to say goodbye to his former gig. Feb. 7 was his last night as the host of Late Night, and he went out with a somber, emotional, but also celebratory show — aided by a guest appearance from the Muppets.

Jimmy Fallon Tears Up At Final ‘Late Night’ Show

In his opening monologue, Jimmy tried to put into words what his last five years as the host of Late Night has meant. He cracked a few jokes — “I’m really gonna miss being on TV at 12:37. I’ll especially miss the battle for late night ratings with my fierce rivals, Craig Ferguson and a veggie chopper infomercial” — but he also got a little serious.

“Most importantly, I want to thank you guys. I want to thank the fans. I can’t believe it,” Jimmy said, getting a little misty. “This didn’t exist five years ago. There was no such thing as this show five years ago. Isn’t that crazy to even believe that? It means the world to me. You make me so happy. Thank you so much.”

Jimmy Fallon & The Muppets Say Goodbye

To close out the final show, Jimmy enlisted his Muppet friends to help him perform “The Weight” by The Band. It’s a classic song with a positive message about friendship and being comfortable and enjoying life, which seemed like a perfect send-off for Jimmy’s kooky Late Night show. And something about having all the Muppets join him just felt right.

After the song ended, Jimmy walked out of the Late Night studio, and down the hall towards The Tonight Show studio. Just as he opened the door, his entire cast and crew were there to celebrate with him. It was the perfect emotional, funny, and symbolic way to say goodbye to Late Night and hello to The Tonight Show.

I get paid over $87 per hour working from home with 3 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I’ve been doing, >>>>>>>> Y­E­L­L­W­O­R­K.­­ℭ­­Oℳ

Why would anybody be sad? He’s making more money, has the best gig ever, works 20 feet away, and he is STILL JIMMY???! I don’t feel bad, I love it. Now I’ll be able to watch more because it’s earlier. I don’t see anything wrong. If anything, I feel bad for Leno! He has age working against him. Fallon will be JUST FINE! No tears shed here!
