In case you missed it, you can watch the entire final show here on Hulu.

Conan is talented, funny, and hardworking, and I’m sure he’ll land on his feet. His comments show that he genuinely cared a lot about NBC and about making the Tonight Show something special.

The show ends with a full rendition of Lynyrd Skynard‘s “Free Bird” featuring, the tonight show band with Conan, Beck, and Billy Gibbons on guitar, Ben Harper on lap steel, and Will Farrell on vocals.  Farrell is not going to win any singing awards, but it is fun to watch.

What did you think? Impressed by Conan’s graciousness towards NBC? Did you like his address to young people about avoiding cynicism? What did you think of Neil Young’s performance?
