Michelle Obama Visits Tonight Show, Plays Along with Cross-Dressing Jimmy Fallon, Will Ferrell

Originally posted 02/21/2014 09:15AM

Jimmy Fallon is wrapping up his first week as host of The Tonight Show with some major guests and serious laughs.

On Thursday night, Michelle Obama joined Fallon for a segment called "Ew!" Taking on the persona – and braces – of a 'tween girl named Sara, the host welcomed a cross-dressed Will Ferrell and FLOTUS to talk about things that make them go "Ew!"

Daddy long legs, dorky stepdads and jelly doughnuts all made the list of valley girl no-nos, but when the "young ladies" tried to poo-poo exercise, Mrs. Obama had something to say.

Kristen Wiig Channels Harry Styles for Hilarious Jimmy Fallon Interview

Harry, is that you?

The parade of A-listers wishing new Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon good luck continued Tuesday with one of Britain's hottest boy banders.

Harry Styles stopped by for a chat with Fallon – or rather, Kristen Wiig did. The Saturday Night Live legend impersonated the pop singer for a hilariously unscripted interview.

The Bridesmaids star, wearing a v-neck T-shirt, stylish suit and wild wig, spoke in her normal voice and struggled to answer Fallon's interview questions.

"Your accent is different in person," Fallon noted. "Because you know, you're not from America."

"I'm from … England!" Wiig replied with some coaxing.

Stars Pay Jimmy Fallon After Losing 'Bet' That He'd Never Host Tonight Show

It seems not everyone predicted Jimmy Fallon's ascendency to The Tonight Show.

During his first show Monday, Fallon said, "To my buddy who said I'd never be the host of The Tonight Show – and you know who you are – you owe me a hundred bucks, buddy."

That prompted a seemingly never-ending string of stars to come out and begrudgingly pay Fallon his $100.

A nervous-looking Jimmy Fallon took to the NBC Tonight Show stage Monday night, but quickly warmed up with the help of family and some famous friends. 

"I really don't know how I got here," Fallon, 39, said during a sentimental opening monologue for his first night at the helm of the legendary show. 

"I remember asking my parents to stay up late to watch Johnny Carson," said Fallon, whose mom and dad waved and blew kisses from the audience. "I can just think there's some kid asking their parents to stay up to watch me." 

After introducing himself to the 240-person audience, the former SNL cast member and Late Show host, backed by his house band The Roots, gave a shout-out to wife Nancy Juvonen and infant daughter Winnie, who were backstage, before warning the audience, "I'll make fun of everybody on this show."

When Seth MacFarlane and Bill Maher drop by your show to sing to you, you know you're not going to get a sentimental rendition of "The Best Is Yet to Come."

The pair said their goodbyes to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show Wednesday in swinging fashion, serenading the departing host with a song that thanked Leno for "the memories you gave," but mostly for "your rivalry with Dave [Letterman]" and "the beating that you gave."

The pair aren't referring to some previously hidden parking-lot dust-up between the two iconic late-night hosts, but rather, as Maher sings, the fact that "you crushed him in the ratings, and you'll take that to your grave!"
