If you said Jimmy Fallon would never get to host The Tonight Show, you owe him a hundred bucks—and you’re not the only one.

Stars including Lady Gaga, Sarah Jessica Parker, Stephen Colbert, Mariah Carey, Lindsay Lohan, Tina Fey, Robert DeNiro and former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani lined up during Fallon’s first show as host on Monday to pay up for doubting he’d ever take over Jay Leno’s desk. Carey pulled her cash out of her bra, Parker pulled hers out of her shoe, and Colbert dumped a bucket of change on Fallon’s desk, then demanded a selfie.

Fallon also danced with Will Smith, and musical guest U2 performed on the roof in front of the New York skyline.
