(Newser) – Conan O’Brien took the stage for the final episode of Late Night yesterday, reminiscing about 16 years on the air with clips and big-time guests, E! Online reports. The 2,725th episode featured John Mayer singing to Conan, Will Ferrell appearing as George W. Bush, and the first White Stripes performance since 2007. Longtime sidekick Andy Richter joined Conan to share the memories. Conan moves to Leno's 11:35 slot on June 1.

Following a week that featured past highlights, set-smashing, and appearances by Jerry Seinfeld, Martha Stewart, and Mayor Bloomberg, O’Brien showed clips last night of his visit to an 1800s-style baseball game and his proving to Jennifer Garner that “snuck” is a word. “There are people that have hosted these kinds of shows who are better than I am," O’Brien said. "Nobody has ever enjoyed it more than I do.”
