Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart and Ariana Grande will be guest stars when The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon airs a special post-Super Bowl telecast on Sunday, Feb. 1 from the Orpheum Theater in Phoenix.  While Grande is set to perform with Tonight Show house band The Roots, Ferrell and Hart are scheduled to go up against Fallon in the ultimate “Lip Sync Battle.”

The show will air live coast-to-coast following NBC’s broadcast of Super Bowl XLIX between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks, an original episode of “The Blacklist” and the NBC stations’ late local news.

From Feb. 2-5, The Tonight Show will travel to Los Angeles for four nights of super-star guests, exhilarating games and lots of surprises at Universal Studios Hollywood. This trip will mark the late-night franchise’s first visit to Los Angeles since moving back east to 30 Rockefeller Plaza’s studio 6B in New York.

Guests for the Los Angeles shows include Michael Keaton and Gwen Stefani (Feb 2); Ellen DeGeneres, Neil Young and former Tonight Show bandleader Doc Severinsen sitting in with The Roots (Feb 3); Vin Diesel and Carl Reiner (Feb 4); Will Smith, Rosamund Pike and Jack White (Feb 5).
