‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ Announces Guest Lineup for Premiere Week

Barbara DeFranco / February 10, 2014

Just days after saying saying good-bye to Late Night, Jimmy Fallon and NBC have announced the celebrity guests who’ll welcome Jimmy to The Tonight Show during next week’s premiere. 

The star-studded guest list will be:

Monday, Feb. 17: Will Smith and musical guest U2.

Tuesday, Feb. 18: Jerry Seinfeld, Kristen Wiig and musical guest Lady Gaga.

Wednesday, Feb. 19: Bradley Cooper and musical guest Tim McGraw.

Thursday, Feb. 20: First Lady Michelle Obama, Will Ferrell and musical guest Arcade Fire.

Friday, Feb. 21: Justin Timberlake.

Jimmy, who hosted Late Night with Jimmy Fallon for five years, will be handing off the baton to fellow SNL alum Seth Meyers. During his final show, Jimmy sang “The Weight” with a little help from The Muppets.

We’re hoping Jimmy and Justin will bust out the History of Rap Part 5 for Justin’s appearance on the show.

Tune in to NBC on Monday following The Olympics to see Jimmy’s debut as Tonight Show host. The show will resume its 11:35 p.m. time slot after the Sochi Winter Games are over.
