The Tonight Show aired live from the Orpheum Theater in Phoenix about an hour or two post-Super Bowl, and it didn’t disappoint. Leading up to the show, Jimmy Fallon kept hinting at huge celebrity appearances and surprises, and we’ve rounded up every one of them.
Without further ado, the list:
Fallon and celeb guests singing Queen’s “We Are the Champions”
It started off with Fallon and The Roots, but they were joined, one by one, by huge musicians, including Carrie Underwood, Meghan Trainor, Blake Shelton, Usher, One Direction, Ariana Grande, Christina Aguilera and Sam Smith.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s very brief Terminator appearance
Now that’s the way to lead into a commercial. Right before the show’s first commercial break, Schwarzenegger walked out and said — yep, you guessed it — “We’ll be back.” And, of course, this would lead right into the trailer for his new film Terminator: Genisys.
Lip sync battle is back!
Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart came out dancing for the rowdy Phoenix audience. And then they proceeded to take part in a Tonight Show favorite: the lip sync battle. The winner? Ferrell, duh. I mean, he lip-syncs to Beyoncé and “Let It Go” from Frozen.

Oh wait, we almost forgot: Drew Barrymore joins Fallon during his second song, Dirty Dancing‘s “(I’ve Had) the Time of My Life.” This was definitely the cherry on top of an already epic battle.

Not only did a Patriots player cut into Ferrell’s Seahawks sweater, but Fallon ended up ripping his pants. Worth it!

All right, we’ll just say it: The Tonight Show was better than watching the Super Bowl. You know it’s true.
