Garth Brooks performed his signature hit, “The Dance,” during Jay Leno’s last stint as host of “The Tonight Show” on Thursday, February 6, 2014.

Jay Leno introduced Garth by stating, “I am a huge fan of Garth Brooks. He’s been a regular guest from the very beginning. I asked him to do one of my favorite songs tonight and he graciously consented. “

Before launching into the emotional song, Garth spoke about the impact Jay Leno has made in the entertainment industry.

“Hey pal, just before we get started here, I just wanted to say that I’m not speaking for me. I’m speaking for all of us. The dearest friend of entertainment, I am staring at right now,” Garth said.

He continued, “You never chose any special format over another; you never chose a network over another. If you are an entertainer that needed a friend and a window to people, you were always that. I love you with all my heart."

Garth has appeared many times since Jay’s inception in 1992; watch a highlight reel of Garth Brooks on “The Tonight Show” here.
