Audio clip:

Announcer: “Here’s your host… Jimmy Fallon!”

With big shoes to fill.

Fallon: “I’ll be your host, for now.”

Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show” debut on NBC, was full of surprises and star power.

Fallon: “To my buddy, who said that I’d never be the host of “The Tonight Show” — you owe me $100 bucks buddy.”

That’s when Robert DeNiro showed up, plunking the cash on Fallon’s desk. Other A-listers followed– like Joe Namath, Lady Gaga and Stephen Colbert, paying his tribute in coins. (cheeing, coins)

Will Smith was the inaugural guest.
