The live two-night finale starts tonight 8/7c!
In this backstage video you’ll see music legend Barry Manilow discuss his new album and his day at the show. And Blue Ribbon Baker Marjorie Johnson tells me about baking for our staff, her competitive nature and she reads us what she wrote in Jay’s guest book.
Here’s a new photo gallery from some recent shows for those of you who like to see what goes on behind the scenes.
See Jay and celebs like Lisa Kudrow, Billy Gardell from “Mike & Molly,” Natasha Bedingfield, Billy Ray Cyrus, Kevin James, comedian Ali Wong, Javier Colon from “The Voice,” Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford from “Today Show,” Captain Sig Hansen more! And see Jay reunite with a fan he met over 20 years ago!
In this backstage video you’ll see Howie Mandel and his fellow staff member Anthony. Watch them further describe what happened when Jay offered to pay for Anthony’s dinner after a minor car accident. And golf analyst David Feherty tells me about golf humor, Tiger Woods and what’s wrong with my putting.
In this backstage video I talk with Emilee Weubben about an experience that happened 21 years ago when she was just a baby. Emilee emailed us through the Tonight Show website and we immediately connected with her story. And if you have a similar story, we’d love to hear from you. Hear the story, and see what happens when Jay arrives for a reunion you won’t want to miss!
This past weekend I was at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. I was invited to the NASA Tweetup where space shuttle Atlantis launched on July 8 on its mission to the International Space Station. It was the final launch of a space shuttle before the program is retired.
While I was off covering the Space Shuttle launch, there was a lot going on backstage here at Studio 11! In this video you’ll see the Today Show’s own Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb as they dance backstage and celebrate a successful appearance with Jay. And see them interact in our hallways with Jay and the musical dog from “Does This Thrill Bill?”
In this backstage video you’ll see Kevin James from the new film “The Zookeeper” as well as Bernie the Gorilla. As you may have guessed, Bernie is not a real gorilla, but a man in a gorilla suit! Meet the man behind the gorilla and see some backstage footage of what it took to choreograph this hilarious part of our show.
