Awesome / Jimmy Fallon

Go To

  • The 2010 Emmy Awards opening, which featured Fallon, Tina Fey (his former partner in crime on Weekend Update), Jon Hamm, the cast of Glee, Joel McHale, and Betty White (among others) in an installment of his Glee parody 6-Bee, culminating in a live performance of "Born to Run". It. Was. Awesome. Also counts as Awesome Music. And apparently he had to convince NBC to give him the gig!
  • When Fallon booked Bruce Springsteen to appear on the show, he made Bruce his only guest that night and did the entire hour with him. Let it never be said that Jimmy Fallon won't give a legend their due.

  • Barbra Streisand. "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" guest. Streisand is LEGENDARY for being almost impossible to book. The fact that Fallon got Streisand in a major "Tonight Show" coup (she hadn't appeared on the show since the earlier Johnny Carson days)? OUTSTANDING.
