VIDEO: Jimmy Fallon's Last Waltz

Friday night was Jimmy Fallon's final night as host of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" before taking over as Tonight Show host after the Olympics.  He closed his show on a perfect note, by paying homage to "The Last Waltz", the Martin Scorcese film that chronicled the final concert by The Band.

 

First, check out this footage from the original film featuring The Band performing "The Weight" with guests The Staple Singers.

 

 

 

Now, for what might be my favorite piece of TV ever, watch Jimmy with his final musical guest Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem (with special surprises).

 

 

The attention to detail is amazing... Jimmy's shirt, the drum set, the lighting and camera movements.  Awesome.
