Over the past few weeks, rumors have been spreading that Jimmy Fallon will be replacing Jay Leno as the host of NBC’s Tonight Show. Until last night, both hosts did their best to skirt around the issue with jokes and jabs, but on Monday they decided to address the rumors the best way they knew how — with song.
On Monday night, the two hosts teamed up for a Broadway-inspired duet that managed to incorporate nearly all of the rumors circulating around the Tonight debacle. While neither host confirmed that a transition is in fact in the works, they did make fun of all of the headlines and attention the controversy has been attracting.
