Billy Crystal’s musical tribute to David Letterman

We’re in the final month of David Letterman’s late-night TV reign, and while Billy Crystal won’t be Letterman’s last guest (although he actually was Jay Leno’s first and last!), Crystal did kick things up a notch or two or more with a musical tribute to Letterman’s sunrise and sunset on the TV stage.

To the tune of Fiddler on the Roof’s “Sunrise Sunset,” roll the highlight reel and cue Billy!

You hadn’t seen some of those faces in a while, had you?

David Letterman, the longest-running host in late night history at 33 years, has 25 broadcasts remaining of the Late Show, with theĀ final broadcast on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on CBS.
