Jimmy Fallon's Post-Super Bowl Tonight Show in Phoenix: 5 Awesome Things That Happened

Jimmy Fallon brought a spectacular post-Super Bowl XLIX Tonight Show to Phoenix's Orpheum Theatre on Sunday, February 1.

Valley dwellers who scored notoriously tough-to-get tickets (they were gone in literally four minutes!) to the on-the-road edition of the late-night show were treated to a mega-entertaining and star-studded evening full of football jokes (even though we all know Missy really won Super Bowl XLIX), Will Ferrell's amazingness, Ariana Grande's ponytail, Kevin Hart, and a few New England Patriots for good measure. Of course, plenty of folks caught the live broadcast of the show, too.

Our five favorite moments? Let's start with a little lip-syncing.
