Jay Leno's Final 'Tonight Show': Hollywood Bids Farewell
Stars took to Twitter to wave goodbye to the late-night host: Justin Timberlake asked for a car, Josh Groban gave thanks and Bette Midler tweeted her tears.
While Jay Leno was bid farewell in person by Billy Crystal, Garth Brooks, Jack Black, Kim Kardashian, Chris Paul, Sheryl Crow, Jim Parsons, Carol Burnett and Oprah Winfrey, the rest of Hollywood took to Twitter to wave goodbye to the Tonight Show host.
Many thanked the late-night comic for the laughs and career support throughout the years, while Justin Timberlake jokingly asked for a car and Bette Midler tweeted her tears.
Meanwhile, producer Mike Royce commandeered Comedy Central show @midnight's hashtag for the evening to quip that The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon Starring Jay Leno would be a bad aftershow idea.
See what the stars tweeted about Leno below.
Much love to the one and only @jayleno. Thank you for all the laughs and great times! Also... Can I have a car? No? Ok, cool.
