EST--- Advertisment ---Anne Lu - Celebrity News Service News WriterLos Angeles, CA (CNS) - Billy Crystal has appeared on Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" on Thursday, a night before the last episode, to perform the finale song.Crystal's hilarious medley includes lyrics taunting Leno's iconic chin, his broard collection of cars, and his hair, which has a "little black thing and it's all white."He also mentioned the late night show host's most infamous interview with Hugh Grant, when he scored the interview after the romantic-comedy actor was arrested for seeing prostitute Divine Brown.The song is a tradition of sorts.

Bette Midler did the same for Johnny Carson when he signed off the show in 1992.Leno, 59, announced his retirement as early as 2004.

He also named his successor, "Late Night" host Conan O'Brien, who will handle the reigns on Monday.

He had said at that time that he wanted to be clear who his heir would be as to not repeat the hard feelings and controversy that occurred when he was favored over rival David Letterman when Carson retired in 1992.O'Brien will be Leno's last guest Friday.For Leno fans, fear not.

He will still be seen in his new primetime, the tentatively titled "The Jay Leno Show," in the fall at 10 p.m.
