In his five years hosting Late Night, Jimmy Fallon has mischievously mixed up the after-dark talk-show format.
Fallon has become the master of getting celebrities off the interview couch and on the show's stage to sing, dance and occasionally get egged.
Before Fallon brings his shenanigans to The Tonight Show on Feb. 17, let's celebrate the Late Night bits that really delivered the laughs.

After 22 years interviewing the best in Hollywood, Jay Leno was bound to make a few A-list pals.
His final Tonight Show broadcast was full of special celebrity guests, and stars who couldn't join in the festivities sent Leno love through social media.
Sure, rival Conan O'Brien allowed himself one solid wisecrack during his own show: "The Olympics start airing tonight on NBC. It's very cool. That's right: NBC has the Olympics. It's a big deal. NBC will finally get to show somebody who is okay with passing the torch."

In any class of more than 23 kids, there is a 50 percent chance two of them have the same birthday – and the same thing is true if those kids grow up to be famous Hollywood stars. Friday's birthday twins are two of 2014's most buzzed-about celebrities: Scandal emoter Kerry Washington (born on Jan. 31, 1977) and actor-turned-musician-turned-actor-turned-musician Justin Timberlake (born the same date, four years later).
Timberlake is Timberlake in everything he does, but for all intents and purposes, Washington is Olivia Pope right now. And since Olvia Pope has a lot of feelings, what better way to celebrate the occasion than by making her a JT playlist for all those late nights on the couch? Save the Motown for montages, Liv – it's handled!

It was 10 years ago that the wardrobe malfunction seen around the world – or at least the country – occurred on the halftime stage of Super Bowl XXXVIII.
At the end of Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake's performance of "Rock Your Body," the now-solo 'NSYNCer pulled off a section of Jackson's dress, accidentally revealing her breast to roughly 140 million viewers.
The slip was paused, rewound and replayed endlessly over the following weeks, becoming fodder for every TV host and the source of outrage for thousands of moms. Even a decade later, the infamous halftime show is cited more than almost any other Super Bowl moment, but Nipplegate goes further than nostalgia.
