VID: Kim, LiLo, Mariah & More Show Up for Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show Debut

Welcome to 11:30, Jimmy Fallon! The Saturday Night Live alum kicked off his reign as the new host of The Tonight Show, and naturally, he had some help from a few of his (very famous) friends.

“I want to say thanks to all the fans for their support,” he said. “And to my buddy who said I’d never be the host of The Tonight Show — and you know who you are — you owe me 100 bucks, buddy!”

Right on cue, Robert DeNiro appeared on stage and slapped a $100 bill on the desk. Apparently, though, it was actually several people who lost Jimmy’s bet, because he was followed by a slew of celebrities including Kim Kardashian, Lindsay Lohan, Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga and more.

Stephen Colbert rounded out the group, deciding to pay Jay Leno’s replacement in 100 pennies instead. “Welcome to 11:30, bitch!” he told him. Watch the whole thing go down here:

Later in the show, Jimmy interviewed Will Smith, and U2 performed.
