After the New England Patriots narrowly came out on top at Super Bowl XLIX, The Tonight Show serenaded the Pats and their rival Seattle Seahawks with a 1970s classic.

To keep the festive atmosphere going after Sunday's big game finished, Jimmy Fallon called on a number of his A-list friends to perform an a cappella rendition of Queen's "We Are the Champions."

Jimmy Fallon's pitch-perfect musical impressions are a Tonight Show staple at this point, but they still never fail to impress.

Case in point: Monday, when the chameleonic host and house band The Roots (the "hardest-working band in late night," as Fallon calls them) took over for U2, who were forced to cancel their appearance after Bono took a spill on his bicycle.

Watch 5 of Jimmy Fallon's Most Popular Late Night Moments, from Hashtags to Mom-Dancing

Originally posted 02/17/2014 02:15PM

What do mom-dancing, hashtags and children's instruments have in common? They're all topics that Jimmy Fallon, with his one-of-a-kind ingenuity and enthusiasm, was able to mine for big laughs – and, once they hit the Web, big views.

In honor of Fallon's assumption of the Tonight Show throne Monday night, enjoy this side-splitting collection of some of his most-viewed sketches:
