In their continuing effort to education America on the history of hip hop, Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake performed their sixth lecture/performance Sept. 9.

They turned the Tonight Show stage into a regular adult education center as they ran through a large gamut of new and old music, backed by the fantastic sounds of The Roots.

And it's a hit! They land an eclectic and wildly entertaining bunch of songs. The thing never unravels, though it was close when Fallon reveals his Compton beginnings.



It's a continuation on a long-running series the two have performed beginning back when Fallon hosted Late Night. Unfortunately, NBC doesn't want anyone seeing those other lessons and has removed the videos from YouTube.

However, Spin has chronicled all the songs featured in the previous installments.

President Obama knows that Donald Trump is probably stressing out over the Aug. 5 first Republican primary debate, so he decided to offer some advice.

Jimmy Fallon's Donald Trump impression might be as weak as his ring finger, but the jokes that spring from this little interaction stand on their own. Plus, half the fun of watching a Jimmy Fallon impression is seeing how far away he can get from the real thing.

This phone preparation covers a great many topics between the sitting president and the man who led the birther cause.

They joked on Chris Christie, Trump got his own Cecil the lion trophy and the whole thing ended with an autotuned duet of OMI's Cheerleader.



Trump's probably had a busy enough week, what with answering all those phone calls after his cell number went public.

That surely won't stop the fireworks from blowing up in tomorrow's debate as the top 10 polled contenders for the Republican party nomination spar for a chance to say anything slightly meaningful in the most presidential way possible.

Some thoughtless wanted Jimmy Fallon to play him a song after we all know the Tonight Show host almost lost his finger in a truly terrifying accident.

The good guy that he is decided to go ahead and make some music, but he needed some help.

Luckily, Chevy Chase also hurt himself in a filthy way (we'll let him tell you what happened) and he stepped in to give The Tonight Show a little soul.

It's just about time for Chase to start making the press rounds for the return of the Griswolds as the awful-looking Vacation reboot? sequel? opens July 29.

As far as the trailer shows, Chase is only in it for cameo purposes, but marketing is marketing.

Promoting his new directorial effort Trainwreck on the Tonight Show July 20, Judd Apatow decided to pull out some new stand up material and pull no punches as well.

Apatow put Bill Cosby right in his crosshairs and fired off shot after shot at the 78-year-old comic.



So far, over 40 women have accused Cosby of a wide range of sexual coercion and assault and news keep coming out from a deposition obtained by The New York Times.

East? West? South?

These are just a few of the enlightening questions that we learn when Jimmy Fallon got a hold of a conversation taped between Shaquille O'Neal and Kim Kardashian. 

The subject? The baby currently developing within Kim's famous womb.

In a smoke filled room, three comedians sit down to play a high stakes game of confessions and lies.

Amy Poehler, Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon take turns delivering what might be a lie or the truth. Try to sniff out the difference!

Jimmy Fallon returned to The Tonight Show July 13 after an an unexpected tape canceling June 26.

At the time, the only news that gave any cause to the cancellation was that Fallon had suffered a 'hand injury'. It turns out the real story was a little more gruesome.

He told the whole of it on last night's program, making it a funny story of tripping on a rug and catching his wedding ring on a table. Then, he said that what he suffered was called a 'ring aulsion' and he said, "Don't Google it."

So, we Googled it.



Essentially, his wedding ring caught on something and ripped the skin and muscle off the bone.

That's why you don't want to Google it.

In the video, Fallon said he was in the ICU for 10 days and it took a very delicate 6 hour surgery to reattach his finger so it wouldn't have to be straight up amputated.

But everything went well, and we're glad to hear it. Fallon's made a solid go on The Tonight Show and provided many hours of entertainment, which he comments on very sentimentally in the video.

Glad you're back, Jimmy. Now keep bringing us terribly weird gems like this.



But really, It's like, why even get married if that could happen, right?

On a very special episode of The Tonight Show, Channing Tatum and Jimmy Fallon take scripts written by children who were only given the title of Magic Mike.

The result is pure beauty.

Jimmy Fallon loves doing impression, loves doing musical impressions and loves creating bizarre scenarios in which to do them. 

Dressing up as James Taylor and joining the real one on a seesaw is maybe the best incarnation of this variety of nonsense Fallon has brought to the Tonight Show. We love it. 

But really, you have to wonder how he gets someone like James Taylor on board for stuff like this. Surely the booking agent talks to him and he's just expecting to come on like a musical guest, play a song, shake a hand and walk away. And then someone says, "Well actually, Mr. Taylor, Jimmy had another idea. It involves a seesaw."

The Roots back up Ed Sheeran in this latest of a series from The Tonight Show. They've been doing a few of these live sessions having artists cover other artists and it has turned out really well so far.

Check out this and the others, then join us in wondering where Sheeran gets all his damn charm.

What began as an innocent game of blackjack with giant foam hands, ended about as poorly as you would imagine.

Don't worry, Jimmy. We'd all be afraid of hitting Jason Statham as well.

It's an enjoyable late night stunt. However, the best line of the whole thing was swept away in all the talk.

Nick Offerman said this to his teammate Hugh.
"If we got married, we'd be Nick JackOfferman."

Also, Offerman has no facial hair and looks really upset about it.



But that may just be his normal expression.
