    Goodbye Jay Leno Tonight Show Host


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     KCRep told me, 'My fondest memories will always be his monologues, they were worth waiting up for. I like to laugh and Jay always made me laugh. What surprised me most about last night's show was not just how many stars showed up but the caliber of stars that showed up. Jay is loved by so many - that will be his legacy.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    I can't begin to tell you how I felt about the final Jay Leno Tonight Show. Words can't describe how great it was.


    The jokes, the songs, the guests were non stop. Laughter, joy, tears were only part of the feelings I had.


    Some of the guests were, Billy Crystal, Oprah, Sheryl Crow, Kim Kardashian, Carol Burnett, Miley Cyrus, Martha Stewart and Jack Black each singing solo from the Goodbye song from The Sound of Music.


    Garth Brooks sang The Dance which Jay requested him to sing, he also ended the show with Friends in Low Places as the audience sang along and Jay clapped.


    Clips of stars told Jay what kind of job he should try out for now. Those stars included President Obama, Kevin Bacon, Jimmie Fallon, Jimmie Kimmel, Matt Damon along with a few other stars.


    At the end of the show Leno, clearly crying, thanked the audience for their viewer ship. He thank all his employee whom he called family. He waved goodbye and said "I'm coming home honey" to his wife. He really couldn't stop crying as he continued his goodbye's.


    I'm sure I'm leaving out more this show had, but it's really late and I can barely see. I hope you all watched or at least can watch it somehow. It was the best Tonight Show since Johnny Carson's farewell.


    Farewell Jay. Have a great life!
