Jay Leno Says Goodbye, and Garth Plays ‘Friends in Low Places’

Jay Leno choked back tears as he closed his final episode of “The Tonight Show” on Thursday.

During the show’s last few minutes, the veteran TV host became emotional as he thanked his longtime crew and reflected on the years they’ve spent together.

“This has been the greatest 22 years of my life,” Leno said while crying. “I am the luckiest guy in the world. I got to meet presidents and astronauts and movie stars. It’s just been incredible.”

Leno went on to say a few words about Jimmy Fallon, who will take over “The Tonight Show” on February 17.

He added, ”And, in conclusion, I want to quote Johnny Carson: ’I bid you all a heartfelt good night.’”
