WATCH: Jimmy Fallon and The Roots Do a Spot-On U2 Cover Performance

The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon was left without a musical guest yesterday evening, when scheduled performers U2 had to cancel last minute. Bono couldn’t make it because he was in the hospital recovering from an injury he sustained from a cycling accident.) So instead of scheduling another act last minute, Fallon took an even better route: He and his house band—Philadelphia’s The Roots—performed as Bono and U2.

“We already have the best band in the world—The Roots are here every single night,” Fallon said, before slipping into Bono’s glasses and cap and taking to the stage to perform a spot-on cover of U2’s 1988 hit “Desire.” Give it a watch above.

WATCH: The Roots and Jimmy Fallon Square Off On Family Feud

Last night Steve Harvey stopped by The Tonight Show to host a round of Tonight Show Family Feud that pitted host Jimmy Fallon (along with Jason Segel and show announcer Steve Higgins) against Questlove, Tarik, and James of The Roots.

WATCH: The Roots Ride Dr. Doom’s Fearfall

Yesterday, when posting a video of Philly comedian Kevin Hart riding a roller coaster with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, writer Victor Fiorillo made a suggestion: “Let’s get Questlove and Fallon to ride the vomit-inducing Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom at Great Adventure.”

This morning he gets his wish. Well sort of. Questlove and The Roots took their turn on the Universal Studios version of Zumanjaro: Dr. Doom’s Fearfall. And it was captured on tape and shown last night on The Tonight Show. Check out the clip above.

The Star Ledger reports that New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will appear on Jimmy Fallon this Thursday. This will be the first time he’s sat on a late-night couch since the George Washington Bridge debacle — and the first time on The Tonight Show since Fallon and Bruce Springsteen sang about him in “Governor Chris Christie’s Fort Lee, New Jersey Traffic Jam.” Will be fun to see what he has to say — or sing — about that. Check out the video after the jump.

WATCH: Bill Cosby Tightropes Across
The Tonight Show Set

For whatever reason, Jimmy Fallon had Bill Cosby walk a tightrope on The Tonight Show last night. In classic Cosby style, the comedian mostly rambled and yelled at the audience until Fallon hopped on his back, and then the two took off on a little piggy back ride. Something tells me it’s not the best idea to jump on the back of a 76-year-old man, but Cosby seemed like he was having a good time. Check out the video above.

HEADS UP: Bill Cosby to Guest on Jimmy Fallon Tonight

The Tonight Show continues its streak of being the most Philly show on Earth. Tonight, according to the TV that’s on in the background at my colleague’s house, legendary Philly comedian, actor and Picture Pages host Bill Cosby will sit down with Jimmy Fallon. Fingers crossed he makes another epic entrance like the one he made when he guested with Jay Leno last fall. Video above.
