The Colbert Report finale was a thrill to watch, with the number of guest stars appearing in the final “We’ll Meet Again” musical number seeming to multiply by the minute. But a few of those guests are showing off just how fun it was to be part of that moment.

There are star-studded finales… and then there’s the last episode of The Colbert Report, which united pretty much everyone you’ve ever heard of (and plenty of people you haven’t) in a giant, giddy singalong. Want to see just who appeared to say goodbye to Colbert? Here’s a full list, complete with photos:
Truly, it’s the end of a Colbera.
And what an end it was! The final episode of The Colbert Report—which began, as his shows often did, with a toss from Colbert’s old boss/buddy Jon Stewart—started off slow; the faux pundit didn’t even formally acknowledge that tonight’s half-hour would be his last until halfway through his first segment.

Stephen Colbert continued his farewell week from The Colbert Report last night when he sold off some beloved props from the show, including shelf decoration Michael Stipe.
It’s going to be hard to say goodbye to The Colbert Report this Thursday—mostly because it’ll mean saying goodbye to “Stephen Colbert,” the ruthlessly ignorant, hilariously pompous, utterly indelible faux conservative pundit that the real Stephen Colbert has been playing on late-night TV for over a decade (if you count the Daily Show years). “Colbert” isn’t a great creation just because of all the jokes he’s told and the absurdities he’s exposed via satire—he’s also a character for the ages because of the many ways he’s had an impact on the real world.

Although it may be difficult to believe, not everyone has spent the weekend gushing over the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer. There are some people who have problems with its apparent disregard for the finer points of how a laser sword works. But on last night’s Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert engaged in one of the proudest traditions in all of fandom—telling other fans how wrong they are.
With only a few weeks of shows left, Stephen Colbert begrudgingly invited one final “liberal lion” guest onto his show for an interview: Jon Stewart.
At this point, Jennifer Lawrence knows how to work a talk show. She sang Christmas carols with Letterman, for goodness’ sake. But her appearance on The Colbert Report was less about what she said (or sang) and more about just having some fun with Stephen Colbert.
During the interview, Lawrence and Colbert decide to become vigilantes; they plan out her future downward spiral, which won’t involve crystal meth because it’s bad for the skin; and they get to the origin of her “J-Law” nickname.
And she loves it.
