Another Jimmy post minus Jimmy. Poor guy.

The amount of performance possibilities with The Roots and things like this are going to keep that show on… solely on the basis of online views from hip-hop sites.

They’re definitely a part of the show, especially with his new “Slow Jam the News” segment. I like it.

I saw reactions all day like “Who Knew Black Thought could sing?”

I have nothing to add to that.

Not that it wasn’t already official, but here’s your in-the-flesh proof that The Roots have arrived to late night. Either way, Jimmy has to introduce The Roots to the old folks who still who are having trouble making that digital transition.

The Roots, come March 2009, will retire from touring, according to the video above (which is working sometimes and not others- my apologies). They’re going to become the house band for Jimmy Fallon’s show when he takes over NBC’s Late Night, when Conan O’Brien moves into Jay Leno’s spot.

If you haven’t seen them live, get on that. It’s definitely one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen. I’m sure the retirement won’t be in effect forever, but for a band that toured as much as The Roots, this is some news.
