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.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon will be broadcast at midnight from February 17th - 20th due to NBC's Olympic coverage, and will resume at it's regularly scheduled time slot of 11:35 p.m. on Friday, February 21st.

Here's the guest list for Fallon's opening week:

2/17 - Will Smith and musical guest U2

2/18 - Jerry Seinfeld, Kristin Wiig, and musical guest Lady Gaga

2/19 - Bradley Cooper and musical guest Tim McGraw

2/20 - First Lady Michelle Obama, Will Ferrell, and musical guest Arcade Fire

2/21 - Justin Timberlake
