Jimmy Fallon thanks YouTube subscribers with 'La Bamba' performance -- VIDEO

To celebrate reaching three million subscribers on The Tonight Show‘s YouTube channel, Jimmy Fallon did what anyone would do: He got his crew together to sing a rendition of “La Bamba.”

Watch the whole performance, including an attempted (and failed) solo by announcer Steve Higgins, below. Usted es el capitán, Jimmy:

Late Night Highlight: Over 20 years later, Joan Rivers returns to 'Tonight Show' -- VIDEO

It’s been a while since Joan Rivers has been allowed on The Tonight Show. When the comedian — Tonight‘s permanent guest host from 1983 to 1986 – was given her own late night show at Fox, Tonight host Johnny Carson retaliated by banning his protégée from ever appearing on his program again. The Fashion Police host stayed away through the Leno, Conan, and second Leno administrations, only making her first Tonight reappearance during new host Jimmy Fallon’s first episode — and her first full comeback last night.

Arnold Schwarzenegger tells Jimmy Fallon to 'Get to da choppa!' -- VIDEO

During his appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Arnold Schwarzenegger proved why he’s a good sport.

In a QVC cooking show skit, Schwarzenegger took us all back to his Predator days with one line: “Get to da choppa!!!” Of course, this time, he was referring to a vegetable chopper instead of a helicopter — not to mention that he was wearing an apron — but who cares about the details, right? Once a Schwarzenegger, always a Schwarzenegger.

Jimmy Fallon and Billy Joel duet with an iPad -- VIDEO

Does Jimmy Fallon want to join Billy Joel at Madison Square Garden?

It certainly seemed that way on yesterday’s Tonight Show, when the fanboy host pitched a duet sing-along to Joel — with a twist. “I’m a little nervous,” Fallon admitted. “You’re one of my all-time favorites, so even just to talk to you is the craziest thing.” Feeling their chat had gone well, Fallon went all-in and  broke out an iPad with an app that allows users to record and loop their voices to make their very own doo-wop groups.

Watch Fallon talk a surprisingly game Joel into performing “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” and then witness what must be Joel’s first iPad-assisted performance:  READ FULL STORY

Kermit the Frog sings 'It's Not Easy Being Green' -- with help from Jimmy Fallon: VIDEO

Jimmy Fallon snagged the St. Patrick’s Day booking for the Tonight Show last night — Kermit the Frog.

Kermit is currently making the publicity rounds for Muppets Most Wanted, and stopped by Fallon’s show Monday night to sing his classic song, “It’s Not Easy Being Green.” It’s all very sweet and melancholy and nostalgia-inducing… until Fallon — green beer in hand — shows up mid-song to remind Kermit that March 17 is actually the easiest day of the year to be green.

And with that, the duo got positive. Watch below: READ FULL STORY

Jon Hamm photobombs tourists on 'Tonight Show' -- VIDEO

Watch your back, George Clooney: You’re not the only star who smolders and loves a good practical joke.

On Monday, Jon Hamm followed up his recent Saturday Night Live cameo by participating in a new Tonight Show bit. As Jimmy Fallon explained, the show had had asked tourists to pose on the “Top of the Rock” — the roof of the building where Fallon tapes — for pictures that would be used to promote Rockefeller Center. Naturally, people agreed — but when it came time to say “cheese,” Hamm appeared behind them, striking the perfect pose to ruin enhance the shot.

Watch below, and ponder whether you’d ever forgive yourself if you were that close to Don Draper and didn’t even know it:

Lindsay Lohan teases possible 'Mean Girls' reunion on 'Tonight Show', has water war with Jimmy Fallon -- VIDEO

It’s the power of Oprah: This is the Lindsay Lohan people want to see.

The actress stopped by the Tonight Show last night to promote her upcoming reality show, which premieres on OWN this Sunday. Lohan charmingly giggled her way through a light discussion about being a selfie-taking pro, as well as her new life in New York.

But the big bombshell was Mean Girls-related. (That’s the very best kind of bombshell.) As anyone who’s been on the Internet recently is aware, the beloved high school comedy’s 10th anniversary is next month. And, according to Lohan, when she was backstage with Tina Fey before Fallon’s first Tonight Show, the two spoke about doing some kind of reunion. Viral-happy Fallon instantly volunteered to host the shindig on his show. So fetch.

Idina Menzel sings 'Let It Go' with Jimmy Fallon and classroom instruments -- VIDEO

Go ahead and hit pause on Adela Dazeem — sorry, Idina Menzel’s — performance of “Let It Go” at the Oscars, because now there’s an even better version of Menzel singing the Frozen megahit.

On Monday’s Tonight Show, Menzel stopped by to debut the latest holdover sketch from Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night days: “[Song] with Classroom Instruments.” Accompanied, as always, by Fallon and The Roots, Menzel sang the catchy tune and looked like she was having a total blast. (This is what happens when John Travolta butchers your name, and now everyone knows who you are.)

Watch the fun below. Come for the tune, stay for the thrilled audience cheers throughout. And don’t worry: Idina totally crushes that glory note this time around. READ FULL STORY

Jimmy Fallon takes on office games with LeBron James -- VIDEO

Is this what we have to look forward to in Space Jam 2?

Probably not. Still, Jimmy Fallon added another notch to his viral video belt on Thursday’s Tonight Show when he joined guest LeBron James for “Wastepaper Basketball” — a perfectly ’80s ode to the wonderful office time waster, set to the music of Kurtis Blow.

The intentionally dorky video deserves special mention for rhyming “super fly” with “IT guy,” as well as for the uber-dated graphics interspersed with the duo shooting hoops (a.k.a throwing paper into a trash can). Somewhere, the Jim Halperts of the world are getting inspired.

'Late Night With Seth Meyers' premieres tonight: 5 things we want to see

Each iteration of The Tonight Show‘s mischievous younger brother has had its own unique flavor. David Letterman’s pioneering version was cutting-edge and unpredictable; Conan O’Brien’s was cerebral and absurd; Jimmy Fallon’s was goofy and YouTubey, and “wait, you remember the ’90s TOO?!”-y.

Late Night‘s latest host, ex-SNL head writer Seth Meyers, will obviously try to forge his own path. That said, he also has a few things in common with each of his predecessors — and it’s easy to see a scenario in which he synthesizes the strengths of all three previous hosts (Letterman’s innovation, Conan’s surreality, Fallon’s knack for viral content) to create some sort of ultimate Late Night Frankenshow.

Something like that, of course, would only come with time. For now, let’s focus on what we’d like to see from Meyers’ very first Late Night, which airs tonight on NBC at 12:35 a.m. ET. First and foremost: READ FULL STORY
