Watch Jimmy Fallon and the Muppets Sing ‘The Weight’

Ever since Bette Midler sang ‘One For My Baby (And One More For The Road)’ to Johnny Carson’ in 1992, it’s become a tradition for a concluding late-night television show to be sent off with a musical bang. Last night (Feb. 7), Jimmy Fallon said goodbye to ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ in his own way, singing the Band‘s ‘The Weight’ with some help from the Muppets.

The clip (embedded above) mirrors the stylized feel of ‘The Last Waltz.’ Fallon, who’s kind of an overgrown Muppet himself, takes the Levon Helm role, playing (air) drums and singing lead on the first verse, as Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem fill the parts played by the other members of the Band and the Staple Singers. As the song progresses, the rest of the Muppets join in the proceedings. It’s not only funny (especially Animal) but also, in its own way, oddly moving.

Fallon will take over as host of the ‘Tonight Show’ on Feb. 17.
