Jimmy Fallon: His 15 Most Popular 'Late Night' Music Sketches

#1Get Ready for 'The Tonight Show' With Jimmy Fallon!

Wednesday afternoon The New York Times confirmed that Jimmy Fallon would soon replace Jay Leno as the host of NBC's The Tonight Show. Congrats Jimmy! 

Fallon had an illustrious run on Late Night; the dude had the biggest stars doing the most ridiculous things. For example, just this Tuesday he had Selena Gomez singing the "Mario Kart Love Song"! Fallon has dressed up as Neil Young, sang "Balls in Your Mouth" with Florence Welch and dueted with Justin Timberlake on Toto's "Africa." Those are just gems in a very long list of highlights.

To celebrate Fallon's promotion to Tonight—he's expected to take the seat in Fall 2014—Fuse is revisiting the show's best musical sketches, as chosen by you, the viral video-watching public. We scanned the Late Night YouTube account and grabbed the 15 most-watched sketches, presented here in order of No. 15 to No. 1. With a larger primetime audience on Tonight, Fallon is sure to cook up even wackier skits in his new gig. Until then, click 'NXT' and prepare to laugh.
