Watch The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Premiere

The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon began its run last night on NBC following the Olympics and Late News with guests Will Smith and an energized U2. While the complete stream of the evening’s festivities is not online yet, NBC has offered up clips so you can watch The Tonight Show with Jim Fallon online free streaming best bits right now. Update: NBC has added the premiere episode in its entirety to their website.

Jimmy Fallon took the stage on The Tonight Show for the first time with a traditional opening monologue in which he exclaimed that he has no idea how hey got there. He talked about his family including his mom, wife and daughter, his band The Roots, and his announced and “psychic” Steven Higgins, all of whom carried over from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

Fallon then brought Will Smith on stage and they performed “The Evolution of the Hip-Hop Dance,” the kind of thing you would expect a younger Fallon to attempt but never the likes of Jay Leno. It featured everything from “Getting Ready to Break Dance” to “The Stanky Leg,” but what was most impressive was Fallon’s ability to keep up with the Fresh Prince at his own game.

U2 was next and performed on top of the Rockefeller Center. Clearly they have no fear of heights. After the performance, Fallon chatted it up with Smith and then Bono came inside, and then they sang “Ordinary Love” together using a red guitar that Bono, the Edge and the Gang gave to him. Between acts there were plenty of celebrity cameos to go around.

Next up for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon is Jerry Seinfeld and Kristen Wiig, to be followed on Wednesday by Lady Gaga and Rocket Raccoon himself, Bradley Cooper. You just know Fallon is going to do a musical number with Gaga that should bring the house down.
