Jimmy Fallon's first week as the new host of The Tonight Show, America's most prestigious and longest-running late night institution, will feature an impressive list of actors, comedians, and musicians as guests.

It was revealed weeks ago that Will Smith and U2 will be Fallon's inaugural guests, and now Lady Gaga, Will Ferrell, Jerry Seinfeld, Justin Timberlake, First Lady Michelle Obama and others will help welcome Jimmy as The Tonight Show's newest host.

Fallon capped his 969 episode run as the host of Late Night last Friday, with guest appearances by fellow SNL alumni Andy Samberg and The Muppets, who performed their version of The Band's "The Weight" with Fallon on drums, instead of Animal.
