Miley Cyrus appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night and spoke of her years on Hannah Montana and she also performed her new song Wrecking Ball.
She informed the late night talk show host, “I don’t just twerk and lick stuff.”
Cyrus talked to Fallon about her just-released album, Bangerz, and also found time to perform an a cappella version of “We Can’t Stop” with his house band, the Roots.
Her wardrobe, an oversized white shirt with a built-in visible bra and suspenders, was also a topic of conversation. Fallon remarked that when his wardrobe department heard that Cyrus was going to be on the show, their reaction was, “Sweet, a night off!” When Cyrus jokingly complained that she was “catching pneumonia” in Fallon’s cold studio, Fallon fired back, “But you have to wear clothes when you come out here.”
The twerking comment came when Cyrus was discussing her appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”
“That was a good time for me to show people that I don’t just twerk and lick stuff, I can sing and I can act a little bit too,” she said.
When you pull a stunt like what she did at the VMAs, it’s hard to think that she knows anything else. What do you think?
Late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon welcomed his first daughter into the world with wife Nancy Juvonen Fallon on Tuesday. He revealed her name to be Winnie Rose Fallon — and he took to his official Instagram account to share a photo of his precious bundle of joy.
On Wednesday, he appeared on his talk show to introduce himself as “your host, dada.”
He revealed, “It’s been a crazy couple days — well actually, it’s one day. Just yesterday. It feels like it’s been a four-day conference or something. It’s very taxing on the fathers. I don’t know how it is for the mothers, but very taxing. I’m emotionally drained. I’m the father of a beautiful baby girl.”
He continued, “Her name is Winnie Rose Fallon, and she’s so cute. She’s 5 pounds, 9 ounces. … Me and my wife are so happy and thankful for all the well-wishes on Facebook and Twitter and the blogs. … I’m just so happy.”
Winnie Rose was born less than 24 hours after the birth of Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge. Obviously, you knew that Jimmy would work that into a joke. He told the audience, “Yes, William and Kate, we’ll definitely set up a play date.”
In April, it was announced that Jimmy Fallon would be taking over hosting duties on “The Tonight Show” after Jay Leno vacates in 2014. Now, it has been announced that Fallon’s successor is going to be Seth Meyers! They couldn’t have picked a better, more suitable guy for the job.
NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said, “We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation. His years at SNL’s ‘Weekend Update’ desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the Late Night franchise.”
Lorne Michaels said, “Since 1982, there have been three Late Night hosts starting with David Letterman, and Seth couldn’t be in better company.”
Seth joked, “I only have to work for Lorne for five more years before I pay him back for the time I totaled his car. 12:30 on NBC has long been incredible real estate. I hope I can do it justice.”

Did you hear that, folks? Jay Leno is finally throwing in the towel on “The Tonight Show”. He is turning over the reins to the show to veteran talk show funny man Jimmy Fallon. Finally, a host that we can actually get behind!
Jay took over the show from Johnny Carson back in 1992, and eventually turned it over to Conan O’Brien in 2009. Shortly thereafter, he ousted Coco and returned to the show. That move has left a bad taste in a lot of his viewers’ mouths, so we are holding out hope that he doesn’t give a repeat performance to Jimmy this time around.
The Hollywood Reporter has more of the nifty details:
Jay Leno will conclude his 22-year run headlining Tonight in spring of next year, at which point the Late Night With Jimmy Fallon host will move up an hour to the 11:35 p.m. slot. The move also will see Tonight return to 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York, where it will be executive produced by Fallon’s former Saturday Night Live boss Lorne Michaels.
“Congratulations, Jimmy,” said Leno. “I hope you’re as lucky as me and hold on to the job until you’re the old guy. If you need me, I’ll be at the garage.”
The announcement comes just one month after The Hollywood Reporter revealed NBC was preparing an exit plan for Leno. THR further reported on Tuesday that Fallon had signed the Tonight deal and that Saturday Night Live stalwart Seth Meyers is being eyed as his Late Night replacement.
Will you tune in to watch “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon”? It has a nice ring to it, no?
Jay Leno must have heard the rumors that he was gearing up to get replaced with Jimmy Fallon by the head honchos over at NBC, because he doubled down on the funny — twice in one night! ZING!
During his monologue, he took the opportunity to nail it to the network TWICE!
He said, “Doctors in Canada were shocked after pulling a three-inch knife blade from the back of a 32-year old man. The knife had been in there for three years! Imagine that, the guy had a knife in his back for three years. He must’ve worked at NBC too. I was stunned by that.”
Afterward, he joked, “Have you heard about this alleged feud that I’m having with NBC? I think it’s going to be OK. This is real: I had dinner last night with a bunch of NBC executives. To make it up to me, what they did, they are sending my wife and I on an all expenses paid Carnival cruise. How about that? So it looks like it’s going to be OK. Fantastic!”
At the end of next year, it’s being rumored that Jay will be replaced by Jimmy. As much of a stranger he is to comedy, these last few days, he’s had a few zingers. Who knew?!?
What do you think should happen with Jay Leno? Should he be replaced by Jimmy Fallon? Should they wait until the end of next year to give him the boot? Sound off with your thoughts in the comments section below!
As we’ve previously reported, Jimmy Fallon might be looking to fill Jay Leno’s shoes on “The Tonight Show” as its official host for the 2013-14 season. Be that as it may, but it leaves a void in the late night spot for the network. Enter Howard Stern….possibly!
Even for late night, it’s hard to imagine he’ll be tame enough for network TV. After it leaked last week that Jimmy Fallon is likely to take Jay Leno’s 11:30 p.m. time slot in 2014, new rumors are abounding as to who will take Fallon’s late-show spot. One of the rumored contenders? Shock jock Howard Stern. A source at NBC tells the New York Post that Stern is seriously being considered for the gig. Stern’s agent and NBC have so far declined to comment on the rumor.
“Page Six” reports that anything regarding Howard taking the soon-to-be open late night slot is being kept hush hush:
His agent, Don Buchwald, says he won’t comment on clients, and NBC’s new head of late night, Doug Vaughan — an old friend and former colleague — has literally gone radio-silent.
We would love it if Howard Stern had his own spot on late night television. What do you think? Hit the comments with your thoughts!

Is Jimmy Fallon going to be replacing Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” for the 2013-14 season? If so, it wouldn’t be because he [Leno] really wants to step down. Of course, we all remember how Leno did Conan O’Brien when he tried to step down the first time back in 2010. A short while later after his show tanked in the ratings, he insisted that he take the reins back over from Conan.
Now, it appears that Jay might be replaced against his own will. Reportedly, Jimmy Fallon will be announced as the new host of the show in the summer. A source close to the situation said that the network wanted to bring Jimmy Fallon in to combat Jimmy Kimmel’s move to the 11:35PM time slot.
A source said, “The more time Jimmy Kimmel is in that slot, the more the young audience goes that way, the harder it is for [Fallon] to keep that audience.”
Another source revealed, “Kimmel has done extremely well. Jay wins overall, but on any given night, it’s neck-and-neck in 18-49. I understand where they might have fear and also feel that they own the solution [in Fallon].”
