Last night (February 17), television personality Jimmy Fallon made his biggest career move yet, as he and The Roots assumed the roles of host and house band on the iconic Tonight Show. In transitioning from Jay Leno to Fallon, it was important that the latter made his presence felt his first night on the job and we’d say he achieved this with flying colors.
Guests like Mariah Carey, Robert De Niro, Mike Tyson, Seth Rogen, Kim Kardashian, Sarah Jessica Parker, Lindsay Lohan, Lady Gaga, and more came to show their support.
For Hip-Hop fans, the best moment of the show was a segment starring Will Smith and Fallon titled The Evolution of Hip Hop Dancing. They proved to be a dynamic duo while performing a timeline of the dances that shaped Hip-Hop culture, including the “Cabbage Patch,” “Kid N’ Play,” “Humpty Dance,” and even the “Stanky Leg.”
See how it all played out in the footage below.
