Jay's Final Tonight Show Will Include Conan, "Really Unusual" Ending

Conan O'Brien might want to prepare a few bars of "One for My Baby," just in case.

The host-in-waiting is not only primed to be Jay Leno's successor to the Tonight Show desk but will be the final guest when Leno's late-night reign comes to an end on May 29.

A company man to the end, Leno praised his redheaded replacement as a "smart, great guy" and "a lot of fun."

"I like the guy, we're friends," Leno said of O'Brien. "Unlike the Miss California USA pageant, this is a peaceful transition of power."

Leno says he has some surprises in store as he ends his 17 years as late-night's No. 1 star. "I have something really unusual and different planned...Something really out of left field that we're gonna end on. It's something really personal and unusual."

Tantalizing tease aside, the rest of Leno's final show, he confirmed, will feature some of his best hits, including highlights from Leno favorite "Jaywalking" and a musical appearance by James Taylor, but don't expect the same air of finality as Johnny Carson's goodbye.
