Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon Sing “Tonight”

Well, at least one of them is lip-synching—and if you have followed the “late night wars” closely, you may not entirely buy the fellow feeling put on display here, as the colleagues/rivals make their way through a version of “Tonight” from West Side Story with the lyrics changed.

The rousing last line is largely true, though: “People just watch online the next day!”
