His first guest Monday was Will Smith and they performed their segment ‘Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing.’ which included: the ‘cabbage patch,’ the ‘pop and lock,’ the ‘wop,’ ‘MC Hammer,’ the ‘carlton,’ the ‘twerk,’ and more.

In their medley they performed: DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince ‘Fresh Prince Theme, LL Cool J ‘I’m Bad,’ OutKast’s ‘So Fresh, So Clean,’ Ini Kamoze’s ‘Hot Stepper,’ Jay-Z’s ’99 Problems,’ and MORE!

I honesty haven’t been awake to catch any of Fallon’s segments, but I will be recording the show because he has set the bar to a new level of late night funny and I’m interested in seeing how his competition will keep up in ratings.
